THE LITTLE THINGS (MY BABY DOES)

Official studio version


The way she kisses so tenderly
The way she gives her love to me
I been felt by the graces and angels up above
The little things my baby does
The little things my baby does
The little things my baby does
That make me love her

The way she sighs when I hold her tight
Good times and bad will be alright
Faces on the street they push hard and they shove
Disappear with the little things my baby does
The little things my baby does
The little things my baby does
I know I love her

The soft summer breeze fills her every sigh
Her eyes are bluer than the summer sky

[Saxophone Solo]

I been felt by the graces and angels up above
The little things my baby does
The little things my baby does
The little things my baby does
That make me love her

And when the night closes in
I'm drifting and I can't find a friend
On the wings of the angels I'm saved by her love
The little things my baby does
The little things my baby does
The little things my baby does
That make me love her

The little things my baby does
The little things my baby does
The little things my baby does
The little things my baby does

[fades out]

Info

THE LITTLE THINGS (MY BABY DOES) is a song written by Bruce Springsteen and released on The Promise in 2010. The above lyrics are for the official studio version of THE LITTLE THINGS (MY BABY DOES) as released in 2010.

Composition And Recording

THE LITTLE THINGS (MY BABY DOES) was written and recorded for the Darkness On The Edge Of Town album. Studio logs show only one take of the song on August 15, 1977 at either Atlantic Studios or The Record Plant, both in New York City. The version that was released on The Promise features a completely modern vocal take by Bruce and probably some other modern elements. This suggests that the song was never worked to completion during the sessions.

The Promise

The Promise is a Bruce Springsteen album that was released on 16 Nov 2010 as part of The Promise: The Darkness On The Edge Of Town Story box set, and separately as a 2-CD set. The album was also issued on a limited edition 3-LP set pressed on 180-gram vinyl.
