Mary-Lou (Acoustic Version) Lyrics

2. Mary-Lou (Acoustic Version)
Track rating :  90 / 100       Votes :  1       [ ]
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.
