Rockabye by Clean Bandit


Call it love and devotion
Call it the mom’s adoration
Foundation
A special bond of creation, hah
For all the single mums out there going through frustration
Clean Bandit, Sean-da-Paul, Anne-Marie
She works the night, by the water
She’s gonna stress, so far away
From her father’s daughter
She just wants a life for her baby
All on her own, no one will come
She’s got to save him (daily struggle)
[Pre-Chorus: Anne-Marie (Sean Paul)]
She tells him “uh, love, no one’s ever gonna hurt you, love
I’m gonna give you all of my love
Nobody matters like you”
She tells him “your life ain’t gonna be nothing like my life
You’re gonna grow and have a good life
I’m gonna do what I’ve got to do”
So, Rockabye baby, Rockabye
I’m gonna rock you
Rockabye baby, don’t you cry
Somebody’s got you
Rockabye baby, Rockabye
I’m gonna rock you
Rockabye baby, don’t you cry
Rockabye, no
Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye
Rockabye, oh oh yeah
Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye
Single mama [?]
Facing the odd life, we don’t know fair
[?] that you really care
Plus any obstacle come you’re well prepared
No mama you never [?]
I protect things here after you
You give the yout love beyond compare
You find his school fee and the bus fare
[?]
Now she gotta a six year old
Trying to keep him warm
Trying to keep all the cold
When he looks her in the eyes
He don’t know he’s safe
When she says “uh, love, no one’s ever gonna hurt you, love
I’m gonna give you all of my love
Nobody matters like you”
So, Rockabye baby, Rockabye
I’m gonna rock you
Rockabye baby, don’t you cry
Somebody’s got you
Rockabye baby, Rockabye
I’m gonna rock you
Rockabye baby, don’t you cry
Bidda-bang-bang-bang, alright then
Rockabye, no
Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye
Rockabye, oh oh yeah
Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye
Now she gotta a six year old
Trying to keep him warm
Trying to keep all the cold
When he looks her in the eyes
He don’t know he’s safe when she says
She tells him “uh, love, no one’s ever gonna hurt you, love
I’m gonna give you all of my love
Nobody matters like you”
She tells him “your life ain’t gonna be nothing like my life
You’re gonna grow and have a good life
I’m gonna do what I’ve got to do”
So, Rockabye baby, Rockabye
Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye
I’m gonna rock you
Rockabye baby, don’t you cry
Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye
Somebody’s got you
Rockabye baby, Rockabye
Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye
I’m gonna rock you
Rockabye baby, don’t you cry
Bidda-bang-bang-bang, alright then
Rockabye, no
Rockabye, oh oh yeah
Reference: There are several peculiarities about this Indie rock + electronic music performance by Clean Bandit band. The voice of Sean Paul sings more something like hip-hop and the voice of Grace Chatto sings something more the rock. At first, you see the female soloist, who resembles you much Drew Barrymore visually – the same body but even more – the same oval of the face and the facial structure. The second peculiar thing is the name itself – Rockabye. We understand that this word isn’t reserved for anyone particular, but before you get acquainted with this tune, you hope that this will be much better-known rock thing performed years ago by Shawn Mullins – Lullaby. The third is what do they do in the clip: they insert many dancing striptease girls on poles. Yes, they aren’t visibly undressed, but the idea is totally comprehensible, as they are undressed that much as it is allowed in the clip with no restrictions for the auditoriums of all ages. The next peculiar thing is the way they visually make us stick to this video – they change a lot of methods to make the frames go interestingly and smoothly, like dancing light twerk-like thing in the bar or singing the lines of the song destined by one person, by several people in the sequence. Okay, but even all these aren’t most peculiar elements. The thing is that this band was founded in Cambridge, England in 2009 – this means they are smart. And the essence of the tune’s lyrics here doesn’t match the filling of the video clip too much. While the clip is energetic and perky, the lyrics tell of love to a child, a baby, and this baby is the singer presumably when she tells she recalls a 6-years-old girl in the lines. So, let’s immerse into lyrics further. They tell of a single mom (particular one and all single mothers in general), who was left by her husband before the kid was born (or shortly after this) and she received help from no one, she earns during the night shifts, working on several jobs, one of them, as it follows, the striptease. She is frustrated and only wants the best for her kid. So she makes the daily attempts, the struggle to survive and raise a child. She loves an own child more than anything and that is why she sings him from time to time rockabye song. Eventually, when the chorus comes, she is singing to a child: ‘Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye.’ The continuation of the song reveals her further love to a kid – now, six years have passed and she still loves a kid, warming him (or her) up, protecting from the cold. Then goes the repetition of what was already sung. The band Clean Bandit is famous with possession Grammy in 2015 (for their song ‘Rather Be’), which was named the best dancing song of the year. Despite the totally dancing way of their activity, the singers, as we have already tell, are smart and that is why they use some pieces of classical tunes like made by Shostakovich or Mozart (the involvement of the latter is emphasized in their ‘Mozart's House’ song). Besides Grace Chatto, there are also two brothers in the cast of members – Jack Patterson and Luke Patterson. Along with one win, the band has several other nominations for not so big music awards: BBC Music Awards, Brit Awards, and Billboard Music Awards. As for the general success of this band, we must admit they have extremely successful singles and albums. Thus, ‘Rather Be’ became 4xplatinum as of FIMI certification. The rest of certifications named this song gold or fewer times platinum. Other advantageous songs (certified gold/platinum), are ‘Extraordinary,’ ‘Real Love,’ ‘Stronger,’ and ‘Tears.’ Their album ‘New Eyes’ reached number 3 in UK's charts in 2014. More on Wikipedia
