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 foreseen
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
Ooh, but you will see

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

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

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
