As a child my mother said

Hold it high, hold up your head

Don't let no man keep you down

It is the lady who wears the crown

Is that why mommy?

Is that why I don't believe in love

He didn't stay the same

And it was she he will blame

Said he met someone better

In that week old letter

Is that why mommy?

Is that why I don't believe in love?

They would fight all night

And later they would even fight in the light

They recited their reasons

And the anger would last for seasons

Is that why mommy?

Is that why I don't believe in love?

And so love will tire

And make lovers into a liar

And so love doesn't last

And somewhere it gets stuck in the past
