Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies…

Mammas don’t let your babies grow up to stay children

Let ‘em mess up and suffer some loss

Let ‘em work hard but enjoy the results

 

Mammas don’t let your babies grow up to stay children

Help ‘em see who they are and have freedom to be

Help ‘em know how they feel and express it in deed

 

Mammas don’t let your babies grow up to stay children

Teach ‘em to express, create, laugh and weep

Teach ‘em to let others, so each soul will keep

 

Mammas don’t let your babies grow up to stay children

Show ‘em their value is equal to yours

Show ‘em the same worth of all others, of course

 

Mammas let all your babies grow up to be adults…
