Bon Jovi Live @ Rock in Rio Lisboa- Born To Be My Baby + Lirycs

Rainy night and he worked all day
We both got jobs cause there's bills to pay
We got something they can't take away
Our love, our lives

Close the door, leave the cold outside
I don't need nothing when I'm by your side
We got something that wont never die
Our dreams, our pride

My heart beats like a drum (all night)
Flesh to flesh, one to one (and it's alright)
I'll never let go something I know deep inside

You were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man
We got something to believe in
even if we don't know where we stand
only God he know the reasons
but I bet he must have had a plan
You were born to be my baby
and baby, I was made to be your man

Light a candle, blow the world away
table for two on a TV tray
I'ain't fancy, baby that's ok
Our time, our way

So hold me close better hand on tight
buckle up, baby, it's a bumpy ride
We're two kids hitching down the road of life
Our world, our flight

If we stand side by side (all night)
there's a chance we'll get by (and it's alright)
and I'll know that you'll be live
in my heart till the day I die

Choros reapet:

(Solo guitar)

My heart beats like a drum (all night)
Flesh to flesh, one to one (and it's alright)
I'll never let go something I know deep inside

Chorus reapet:

You were born to be my baby
and baby, I was made to be your man (2x)
(na,na,na,na,na,na....'till the end)

Music video

The video for the song was done in all black-and-white, like many of the band's videos from the New Jersey album.

A very low budget video, it was shot all in the studio, chronicling the recording process for "Born to Be My Baby". In the full length video, there is actually a dialogue between the band members, and the band does the chorus again, unsatisfied with the original version. The video prominently features photogenic shots of Jon Bon Jovi singing, as well as the band gathering around a microphone to sing the "na-na-na-na-na" part. The video also features Jon Bon Jovi's wife, Dorothea.

The video was featured on New Jersey: The Videos, a promotional VHS that is no longer manufactured. The video was absent from the video collection Cross Road: The Videos. It was later featured on Bon Jovi's 2010 release Greatest Hits - The Ultimate Video Collection.

The ending of the video depicts Bon Jovi cheering and hugging each other. This was the moment that the band learned New Jersey was the No. 1 album in the U.S. [2]
