Mary-Lou (Acoustic Version) Lyrics
Mamas put your babies to sleep,
story is 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, 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 and eating for two,
he´s goin´ out with someone new.
Sunshine or rain, it´s all the same.
Life isn´t gray, 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, 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 and eating for two,
he´s goin´ out with someone new.
Sunshine or rain, it´s all the same.
Life isn´t gray, Mary-Lou.
