Song Description

the story of a Rita who gives her son up for adoption.

Lyrics

She was on the run when I first met her
Rita said the whole world was out to get her.
Talked drank coffee, I said, "things are gonna get better"
Put her head on my shoulder and she cried on my sweater.

Rita's first love didn't turn out so great
She ain't seen that boy since she told him that she was late.
Parents told Rita they had it all arranged
Go away for a few months and act like nothing's changed.

Mama won't, Daddy don't, People don't no they won't listen C
Mama won't, Daddy don't, but I will, I will listen.

Rita had her baby on a cold winter day
Part of her died inside when they took him away.
She never got married, now she's got 2 jobs and a cat
Spent all these years wondering where her son was at.

Mama won't, Daddy don't, People don't no they won't listen
Mama won't, Daddy don't, but I will, I will listen.

I will listen...................

Was a little nervous when I first met her
Never thought she'd ever return my letter
Talked drank coffee I said, "Mom, things are gonna get better"
Put her head on my shoulder and she cried on my sweater.

Mama won't, Daddy don't, People don't no they won't listen
Mama won't, Daddy don't, but I will, I will listen.
Now we're here, at this rendezvous
I've waited my whole life just to look at you
Now we're here and we've got so much catching up to do.
And I will listen.......
