And it have caused me to weep
And to
It done caused me to weep
And to moan
It done caused me to weep
An it caused me to moan
You know that love done caused
Me to leave my happy home

Oh love'll lie
Oh love, just
Oh love, oh
Oh, love'll die
Ooh, love
Oh love, oh careless
Now you can see me
What a careless love have

My mother, she told me
When I was a child
My mother, told me
When I was a child
My mother, she told me
She told me
When I was a child
'These old, battleaxe women
Son, go an' run you wild'

Then I said, 'That's the reason'
Oh careless love'
Oh, love

An I believe I heard her say
'Oh Lord, will you see my child, today
And you see what this careless love
Done causin'?

And you can just see, now
What a careless love have done
Now, you can just see
What careless love have done

An you now, you can see

You can just see
What careless love have done
An you know it done
'Caused me to do a lot of things wrong

An that caused me to
Leave my happy home
