"Somebody's Baby" as written by and Danny/browne Kortchmar....
Well just look at that girl
With the lights comin'up in her eyes
She's got to be somebody's baby
She must be somebody's baby
'Cause all the guys on the corner
Stand back and let her walk on by

They say she's got to be somebody's baby
She must be somebody's baby
She's got to be somebody's baby
She's so fine

[Chorus]
She probably somebody's only light
Gonna shine tonight, oh yeah
She's probably somebody's baby all right

I heard her talkin' with her friend
When she thought that nobody else was around
She said she's got to be somebody's baby
She must be somebody's baby
'Cause when the cars and the signs
And the street lights light up the town

She's got to be somebody's baby
She must be somebody's baby
She's got to be somebody's baby
She's so

[Chorus]
I try to shut my eyes
But I can't get her out of my sight
I know I'm gonna know her
But I gotta get over my fright
Well I'ma gonna walk up to her
I'm gonna talk to her tonight

Oh yeah

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis is an awesome remake of an awesome Jackson browne song. To me this song is walking up to a girl that is untouchable, but than realizing that the only way to really get a girl like that is to talk to them and not be afraid of rejection.

    General CommentThis song was recently on a movie I watched and its great. I think it more to be about this beautiful girl who is just so untouchable she has to be someones "somebody".

    General Commenti think it's about a guy who thinks this chick is so beautiful and special, that she's gotta have a boyfriend....because all the other guys who see her, don't want to talk to her, he thinks they're crazy....it's a gorgeous song...

    General Commenti loooove this song. i first heard it on the movie "not another teen movie" it's about this guy who meets a girl that is not the most gorgeous person but he sees her internal beauty. and he wonders how no one else can see this beauty, and why she doesn't have a man..

    General Commentsame here...every time I hear this song I hear about this girl in my english class (I'm in college at Georgia Tech), and available girls here are EXTREMELY uncommon (the male/female ratio is like 72/28 here...sux), but anyway she's hot as hell, very cool, everything i look for in a girl, but she has a boyfriend. Just like any other girl here, has to belong to somebody...
