SONG - The Pie Song "baby don't you cry"

This beautiful little song is from the movie "Waitress". Kids and teachers love this song but it also has a touching story behind it.

Waitress was written, directed and acted in by Adrienne Shelly a young up and coming female director and new mom. She also co-wrote the song for the movie. The love between mom and daughter that is so powerfully displayed in the movie was inspired by Adrienne's relationship with her own daughter.

The movie was a hit at the Sundance Film Festival and was purchased by the major distributer but tragically Adrienne was killed in her New York office/apartment before the movie was quite completed. Adrienne's husband established the Adrienne Shelly Foundation, a non-profit organization that will award film school scholarships and grants to women filmmakers.

After seeing the movie I could not get this song out of my head. The next morning I sat down and figured out the words and music as best I could remember. I did not remember perfectly so this song is my version.

My seven year old granddaughter Rose and I have been singing it together and it has inspired my grandson Sage and I to envision a special pie that we made on our yearly family reunion. (The "can't get enough chocolate... whupped cream... strawberries" grandchildren & Granpa Pie)

This song would go will with a class or home project to make your own desert with strawberries and hearts. It is a song about the power of love and comfort food made with love that we can all relate too.

You might like to hear a recording of Rose and I singing the "Pie Song" in our living room. (When she sings real loud she says she is trying to sound like "a whole children's chorus". Let us know what you think)

The Pie Song
Baby don't you cry, gonna make a pie,
gonna make a pie with a heart in the middle.

Baby don't be blue, gonna make for you,
gonna make a pie with a heart in the middle.

Gonna make a pie from heaven above,
gonna fill it up with strawberry love.

Baby don't you cry, gonna make a pie,
all my love for you in the middle of my heart.


I like to add verses replacing the words with...
"La, La, La, La" or "Do, Do, Do, Do", or a hand kazoo sound.
when the kids were going on a field trip to a little farm
we added changed the words to
"Moo, Moo, Moo, Moo" and "Baa, Baa, Baa, Baa"
The kids loved it!

I, too, loved this song frome the movie, although I didn't care for the movie itself. I found the lyrics to this entire song elsewhere on the internet - it was apparently written by Quincy Coleman. A few of the words are just a bit different:

Gonna be a pie from heaven above
gonna be filled with strawberry love

Baby don't you cry
gonna make a pie
Hold you forever in the middle of my heart
