Hey Mama

Hey Mama,
When they’re young, keep your kids close.
Hey Mama,
Make sure your kids grow.
Hey Mama,
Parenthood’s no joke.
Hey Mama,
Show your kids how to be good folk.
Hey Mama,
Kids will trip and fall.
Hey Mama,
Let them learn, or it’s for nothing at all.
Hey Mama,
Don’t let those precious lives wilt like a rose.
Hey Mama,
Keep your kids close.
