We've got a colleague out of the office for a . . . special delivery today. To celebrate, we thought we'd turn to the man who has written a thing or two about making babies and the road the follows. The task was easier than we thought. As it happens, EVERY Tom Petty song is about the nine months between conception and delivery. Check it out:

10. "Mary Jane's Last Dance": Dudes, bong-hitting is said to to lower one's sperm count. Ladies, it's typically frowned upon after conception. Get it out of the way now.

9. "Even the Losers": Nope, you don't need a license to make a baby. And even losers get lucky sometimes.

8. "You Got Lucky": Yes, you did.

7. "I Need to Know": Yes, and now you can learn the sex of the baby at just 7 weeks.

6. "Listen to Her Heart": Yes, that first ultrasound is a shocker.

5. "You Don't Know How it Feels": Ladies, you're absolutely right. We plead ignorant just this once.

4. "The Waiting": Back pain? Exhaustion? Stress-eating? Old Man Petty is right again: The waiting is the hardest part.

3. "Here Comes My Girl": The moment has arrived.

2. "Into the Great Wide Open": 'Nuf said.

1. "American Girl": No matter the color or creed, if she's born here, she's an American Girl.
