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 oh mary-lou. 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.
