Madonna (1958) handwritten lyrics to 'Cry Baby' (PF17)

These lyrics have been handwritten by Madonna for her song 'Cry Baby', a hit from the 'I'm Breathless' album released in 1990...

Madonna writes:

(CH) Cry Baby la la la la la la la

He's just a Cry Baby la la la la la la

(V2) My guy is such a wet noodle he's always teary eyed

He acts like a reall cock-a-doodle

He can't even tell you why.

If you just play him a sappy song

He acts like his doggy just died

He's just a Cry Baby Guy

Madonna has drawn a box around the last three words 'Cry Baby Guy'
