Sunny Clapp & His Band O'Sunshine - Treat Me Like A Baby

I rediscovered this pretty melody yesterday. A band I played with years ago used to play it, but it had entirely slipped from my mind until I began clattering through some old cassettes.

Impressive multi-instrumentalist Sunny Clapp (composer of 'Girl of my Dreams') seems to have found the perfect tempo, in my opinion - it's a delicate little melody, but the reasonably jaunty pace makes it sound, well, 'sunny'.

I love the vocal, so typical of its era. What about the lyrics though? Can we stomach a song nowadays that promotes the infantilisation of one's romantic partner? It depends as much on the prospective singer as the audience, I suspect.
