Mother, you had me
But I never had you
I wanted you
But you didn't want me

I just got to tell you
Goodbye

I needed you

Mama don't go
Daddy come home

Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
