Mamas put your babies to sleep, story too cruelsome for them this is.
In Junior high she said goodbye to her parents and ran away with a boy.
She left her family warm and kind, all of her friends said
"you´re out of your mind".
Life of her own she would find, it´s Monday and she´s gotta grind.
A Job as a waitress she sure was to find, beautiful face, mind of a child.
Boy got her pregnant, Mary-Lou cried,"
For this I am too young
Oh why did you lie" You said "it´s okay if we do it today",
I was so scared that you would go away.
"Despite all the papers been signed,
Mama take me back be so kind".
Only a child, reckless and wild, needs to come home again.
He promised the moon but won´t marry you.
Nothing to do, eating for two, he´s goin´ out with someone new.
Sunshine or rain, it´s all the same, life isn´t gray
Mamas do your children still sleep,
In the safe of their cradles so sweet.
Story I told you I have forseen,
Your little angel ain´t always so clean.
Days to come aren´t easy to see,
You can change ´em but it isn´t free.
I see that you don´t believe, ooo-oo, but you will see.
