Don't Worry Baby

This is my cover of the Beach Boy's classic. Not that I'm one to criticize Brian Wilson who is an incredible songwriter (and a hell of a pitcher) but there's one line that's always bugged me and I changed it here. The last verse originally included the lines:

...take along my love with you
...nothing can go wrong with you

And I've changed it to:

...take my love along with you
...nothing can go wrong with you.

I mean, the rhyme is right there, why not use it?



Well its been building up inside of me
For oh I don't know how long
I don't know why but I keep thinking
Something's bound to go wrong

But she looks in my eyes
And makes me realize
When she says

Don't worry baby
Everything will turn out alright
Don't worry baby

I guess I should've kept my mouth shut
When I start to brag about my car
But I can't back down now because
I pushed the other guys too far

She makes me come alive
And makes me wanna drive
When she says

Don't worry baby
Everything will turn out alright
Don't worry baby

She told me "Baby, when you race today
Just take my love along with you
And if you knew how much I loved you
Baby nothing could go wrong with you"

Oh what she does to me
When she makes love to me
And she says

Don't worry baby
Everything will turn out alright
Don't worry baby
