LYRICS:
**************************************************************************

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.

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, oh Mary-lou
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.
