Lyrics

Mama's Mistake

She's got no one at home to help her
Daddy's gone and her mama's a child
But she's bright and she'll learn, not much more she can burn
As she cleans up the stove with a smile

All the clothes that she needs for tomorrow
Still remain on the laundry room floor
But she's bright and she knows, what it takes to wash clothes
As she loads the machine as before

Soon it's time that she does her homework
makes her lunch for another day
and remembers to dry the laundry
and keep out of her mama's way...

go to bed and pray

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I should die before I wake
Don't let me die mama's mistake

Instrumental

In her dreams she finds affection
That disappears with the light of day
But she's bright and believes,
when she's down on her knees
Somebody hears her pray

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I should die before I wake
Don't let me die mama's mistake
Don't let me die mama's mistake

Really nice conversational lyrics.....strong vocal ...some very cool melody moments,,,"someone hears her pray"...simple but surprisingly surprising.

Really nice production, arrangement, vocals... good conversational writing.
