Baby Please Don't Go (down to New Melbourne)
Monday, April 7, 2008

Muddy Waters/Van Morrison/Joss Whedon Mashup. (The trick is to try to keep the 'please don't go' tune even when the lyrics switch)

Baby, please don't go

Baby, please don't go

Baby, please don't take my love, take my land

Take me where I cannot stand

Before I be your dog

Before I be your dog

Before I be yours, I don't care, I'm still free

Baby, you can't take the sky from me

Turn your lamp down low

Turn your lamp down low

Turn it down and take me out to the black

Tell'em I ain't comin' back

Baby, your mind done gone

Well, your mind done gone

Well, your mind done burnt the land and boil'd the sea

Baby, please don't take the sky from me

You brought me way down here

You brought me way down here

You brought me way down, but there's no place I can be

Since I found Serenity

Baby, you can't take the sky from me

Thanks! The 'Down to New Melbourne' was a last second thought, and the darned thing can't be edited now. New Melbourne (other than being like the original New Orleans) was where Inara wanted to be dropped off in Objects in Space. So... I thought I should have added a final refrain to bring it back to that thought, and to the original song:

Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go down to New Melbourne
You know I love you so
Baby please don't go
