Can't Cut The Baby In Half
(Kurt Fortmeyer/Jan Buckingham)
Dad Zone Music ASCAP/Duck House Music BMI

We put the House For Sale sign out in the yard
Dividing our assets can’t be that hard
There’s nothing you gave me that I can’t give back
Except for some good times we had

Go clean out the pantry take what you want
We’ve got enough groceries for two restaurants
I’ll take the dog if you’ll keep the cat
But we can’t cut the baby in half

We both want to take him and make him our own
Forgetting about the love that we’ve known
But It all boils down to one simple fact
We can’t cut the baby in half

Peacefully sleeping that bundle of joy
Makes me wonder how we got to this point
Where I drive you crazy and you make me mad
But we can’t cut the baby in half

We should stop being stubborn ‘cause I have no doubt
If we both give in we can work this thing out
Part you and part me it can't be all bad
We can't cut the baby in half

We both want to take him and make him our own
Forgetting about all the love that we’ve known
But It all boils down to one simple fact
We can’t cut the baby in half
I'll take the sign from the yard if you'll go and unpack
We can't cut the baby in half
No we can't cut the baby in half
