"Knocked Up" as written by and Jared/followill Followill....
I don't care what nobody says
We're gonna have a baby
Taking off in a Coupe de Ville
She's buckled up on navy

She don't care what her momma says
No she gonna have my baby
Taking all that I have to take
This takings gonna shake me

People call us renegades
'Cause we like living crazy
We like takin' on the town
Cause people's getting lazy

I don't care what nobody says
No I'm gonna be her lover
Always mad and you's a drunk
But I love her like no other

And in the dark we say we don't know
Where we're gonna go
I'm a ghost and I don't think I quite know
Where we're gonna go
Where we're gonna go

People call us renegades
Cause we like living crazy
We like takin' on the town
'Cause people's getting lazy

I don't care what nobody says
No I'm gonna be her lover
Always mad and you's a drunk
But I love her like no other

And her daddy he says he don't know
Where we're gonna go
I'm a ghost and I don't think I quite know
Where we're gonna go
Where we're gonna go
Where we're gonna go
Where we're gonna go
Where we gonna

(Whoa-a oh oh oh)
(Whoa-a oh oh oh)
(Whoa-a oh oh oh)
(Whoa-a oh oh oh)
(Whoa-a oh oh oh)

People call us renegades (Whoa-a oh oh oh)
We like takin' on this town (Whoa-a oh oh oh)

(Whoa-a oh oh oh)
(Whoa-a oh oh oh)
(Whoa-a oh oh oh)

I don't care what nobody says
We're gonna have a baby
Takin' off in a Coupe de Ville
She's buckled up on navy

She don't care what her momma says
No she gonna have my baby
I'm takin' all I have to take
This takings gonna shape me

(Whoa-a oh oh oh)
(Whoa-a oh oh oh)

    General CommentFrom an EW.com interview with Caleb

    That song started with the melody and it started chugging along, then the first thing that came into my head was, ''I don't care what nobody says, we're going to have a baby.'' Everyone just looked at me in the rehearsal room and I threw my hands in the air and said, ''I don't know what to say – it just came out.'' I think the reason I talk about having a baby is because of my fear of an actual relationship. I can actually see myself having a kid before I can see myself getting married, and I know that goes against everything we were raised to believe, but the whole marriage thing...I don't know if it really works these days, which is unfortunate. It just seems divorce is inevitable. So for me talking about having a baby in that song, it's like the glue that might keep things together, or at least an excuse to make it last a little longer

    General Commentthis awesome song makes me think of romeo and juliet, defying all odds to be together and have their baby.

    hes describing both of them as reckless and drunken and how people call them crazy renegades kinda makes us question their ability of being parents

    but he explains in the song that this "taking" that being their current situation with running away and having a baby will shake but also shape him.

    General Commentit's navy. i love when he says 'always mad and usually drunk but i love her like no other' it's one of the most romantic phrases of this song, in a rare way

    General Comment"Always mad and usually drunk
    But I love her like no other"

    there is something about those lines that is so romantic in such a warped way. it reminds me of a real relationship. the fact you have to take someone for the good and the bad.

    Song MeaningI think the lyrics are pretty obvious (and fantastic). But i also think there's a deeper meaning in the actual tune. The song begins with a steady base. Nothing special. Then, all of a sudden, these high guitar picks jump in. It's almost like the base is all his buddies and family saying "what a stupid thing to do," and he starts agreeing with them. Then he realizes he's gonna have this girl to himself forever and actually have a child with her. He sees the happiness of the situation. The joy he feels is the high guitar picks. Think about it.
