Things are gettin' better but right now it's not looking great
My ceiling still is spinning from a night that went too late
I used to sleep this off and let the shame just melt away
But not for tiny feet in hallways calling out my name

It's not that I don't love you, I wouldn't touch the hands of time
It's not that I don't long to feel your tiny hand in mine
I'm not a perfect woman, Lord, I don't wish it all away
My name can't be Mama today

Today I didn't listen to the voice inside my head
I peeled out of the driveway left my family in bed
Know it wouldn't be easier to just quit the road and stay home
I'd lose myself inside the halls, unsatisfied and alone

Sometimes all I want is to run back to you at night
To rock you to sleep, to keep the blues out of your eyes
I'm not the kind of woman that would throw it all away
But my name can't be Mama today

I drive my mother crazy out here traveling the world
Free-wheeling in the city, I'm a solitary girl
I'm living in the moment, knowing there might come a day
But my name can't be Mama today, uh-uh

It's not that I don't want to, I just don't want to today
I'm not a fan of mornings and I love my chardonnay
No, I'm not saying never, I won't wish it all away
But my name can't be Mama today, oh no
My name can't be Mama today
