"Baby Boy" as written by and Max Martin....
Everyday, I'm in a daze
Looking for that someone
And everyday, I sit and kneel and pray
Oh, sweet love, can I get some?
So why do you desert me, baby boy?
I need your love right now!
And if you desert me, baby boy
Don't you leave me in your crowd

[Talking]
Hey baby, what time you gonna get home?
Oh, really?
[Sigh]
Alright, well, I'll see you later, then
Oh, wait
Would you mind getting some...
Yeah, when you come home
Yeah, that's it
I love you too
Bye

[Singing again]
Some day when you see my face
You will think that you have won
And some day when it's all away
Our love just begun
So why did you desert me, baby boy?
I thought that you, you were the one
So if you preferred the other one
She won't bring you the sun

    General Commentthe rawness of her voice makes it very tactile.
    pretty self explanatory song- she loves a guy who doesnt love her back and leaves her for another girl-

    'So why did you desert me, baby boy?
    I thought that you, you were the one
    So if you preferred the other one
    She wont bring you the sun'

    -perhaps a player who makes girls fall for him then moves onto the next,
    the sun like she aint anything special and won't give you the love i could of.

    General Commentshes talking about how she loves this guy and she thinks that hes the one for her.
    when she said "so why do you desert me" the guy leaves her and he doesnt love her.
    when she said "hey baby, what time you gonna get home? oh really. wait. would you mind getting some? yeah when you come home" like the guy is always somewhere else and i also think that hes lying to her (the part when she said i love you too, hes making it seem like he loves her but in the end he left her. so basically this song is about being inlove with someone who doesnt love you back, being with someone who lies to you but yet you still love them. this is actually good song but really sad.
