"Baby" as written by and Devendra Banhart....
Baby
I finally know what I'm going after
I'm learning to let in all the laughter
Holy moly
You're so funny
You crack me up
You crack me up

Look out
For dreams that keep returning
Cause magic ? yearning
You feel it
You gotta want it
The way I want you babe

Traveling by choo choo train
We know where
We just don't know when
Like some everlasting ? love

Never
Heard a better bad joke said out loud
You flip flip
And I wild out
Can you believe it?
I can't believe it
But it's true

You're giving eighty billion years of giggling
A whole new world to live in
But this one's real
This one's real
This one's real

Like a ? kangaroo
You be one and I'll be one too
Play it goofy or play it cool
?

Everything that happened
You know it don't mean a thing to us
'Cause so much is going to happen

Because
You showed me
A sunset overflowing
But who cares where it's going
As long as you're next to me

    General Commentsong is obviously about anal sex, judging by the video.

    who disagrees?

    General CommentI like this song,
    It's cute. (:

    Except I have no idea what he's saying in the ??? parts.
    The song is self explanatory, though.
    This person has changed his life, showed him 'a whole new world'.
    He's in love.

    Im learning to let in all the laughter
    Holy Moley you´re so funnny
    you Crack me up, you crack me up

    Look out for dreams that keep returning
    ´cause magic ain´t no hand-me-down yearning
    you gotta feel it you gotta want it
    the way i want you babe, the way i want you babe

    Traveling by choo-choo train
    We know where we just don´t know when
    Like some everlasting onion that i love

    Never heard a better bad joke said outloud
    you flip-flop and i Wall out
    can you believe it?
    i can´t belive it
    but it true

    You´re giving eighty billion years of giggling
    a whole new world to live in
    but this one´s real, this one´s real, this one´s real


    Like some hog tied Kangaroos
    You be one and ill be one too
    We can play it goofy or we can play it cool

    Everything that that happened
    you know it doesn´t mean a thing to us
    cause so much is going to happen
    because
    you showed me a sunset overflowing
    but who cares where its going
    As long as you´re next to me

    General CommentI love this song!
    I agree with boltzman5 that it sounds like he says “‘Cuz magic ain’t no hand-me-down yearning”
    but rather than hearing onion I hear unend “like some everlasting unend I love”

    I’m not too sure about the kangaroo part... though it sort of sounds like he says “like a bow-tied kangaroo” or “like and old, tired kangaroo”, I guess the latter would make more sense.

    General Commenti think this song is what love sounds like-- not the soaring, grandiose theme music from the titanic movie; but a simple, sunny ditty that makes everyone who hears it smile a little inside

    what say about the verse "You´re giving eighty billion years of giggling/ a whole new world to live in/ but this one´s real, this one´s real, this one´s real"??
    80b yrs is the time period in which allan sandage (the guy who first dated the universe from the big bang until now) projected the universe expands and contracts.. so devendra is maybe saying this girl could make him laugh for as long as the universe exists? i like it :-)

    General Commenti'm pretty sure the lyric is "magic in the wind that i'm yearning"
    and..
    "Bow tie kangaroo"
    the acoustic version makes it's easier to hear.

    Lyric CorrectionI have it, from the acoustic version I hear him clearly say:

    Baby
    I finally know what im going after
    I'm learning to let in all the laughter
    Holy Moley you´re so funnny
    you Crack me up, you crack me up

    Look out for dreams that keep on returning
    ´cause magic ain´t no hand-me-down yearning
    you gotta feel it, you gotta want it
    the way i want you babe, the way i want you baby

    Were traveling by choo-choo train
    We know where we just don´t know when
    Like an everlasting onion pulled by love

    Never heard a better bad joke said outloud
    you flip-flop and I wild out
    can you believe it?
    I can´t belive it
    but its true

    You´re giving eighty billion years of giggling
    Its a whole new world to live in
    but this one´s real, this one´s real, this one´s real


    Cause were like a hog-tied Kangaroo
    You be one and ill be one too
    Play it goofy or we can play it cool
    you are very well on our minds

    Everything that that happened
    you know it doesn´t mean a thing to us
    cause so much is going to happen
    because
    you showed me a sunset overflowing
    but who cares where its going
    As long as you´re next to me
