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.
