Baby Girl lyrics

[Talking:]
Do you know your wealth?
More than diamonds hiding on a shelf.
Do you know who you are?
God has made you a shining star.

Oh wanawanawana oh wanawanawana oh wanawanawana ohoh

I've got a little friend
Her age is four plus ten (that's fourteen)
She calls me on the phone (yes she yes she does now)
Crying, crying every now and then.
And she says, "My mama just won't listen,
My daddy still is missin'
I don't feel I am nothing of value or worth"

[Chorus:]
And I say, "Baby girl get a hold of yourself
Baby girl don't you know your wealth?
You're a diamond hiding on a shelf
Baby girl, baby girl
Baby girl don't you know who you are?
God has made you a shining star
A little light's brighter than the dark
Baby girl, baby girl"

I call my sister friend
I'm crying, crying and whining again (yea me)
She let's me vent my heart (yes she, yes she does now)
Before the healing starts
And I say, "My children just won't listen
My paycheck still is missin'
And every little thing is working my nerve."

[Chorus:]
And she says, "Baby girl get a hold of yourself
Baby girl don't you know your wealth?
You're a diamond hiding on a shelf
Baby girl, baby girl
Baby girl don't you know who you are?
God has made you a shining star
A little light's stronger than the dark
Baby girl, baby girl"

Oh wanawanawana oh wanawanawana oh
Hold that thought I'll be right back.
Oh wanawanawana oh wanawanawana oh
A little bit of light's stronger than the dark.
Oh wanawanawana oh wanawanawana oh
Hey hey yea yea oh oh

[Chorus:]
Baby girl get a hold of yourself
Baby girl don't you know your wealth?
You're a diamond hiding on a shelf
Baby girl, baby girl
Baby girl don't you know who you are?
God has made you a shining star
A little light's stronger than the dark
Baby girl, baby girl

Baby girl
Baby girl
You're a shining star
Baby girl
You're like a diamond hiding on a shelf
(Baby) You know who you are
(Baby) You're a shining star
(Baby)
(Baby) Don't you know who you are
(Baby) You're a shining star
(Baby) A little bit of light's stronger than the dark now, oh
