Hush little girl and don't you cry.
Everything is gonna be just fine.
Don't waste your tears or your time.
Cause momma's only love is a dollar and a dime.

It seems like you're worthless to her.
What did you do?
Besides stand there crying
while she split your lip in two.
the blood from your lip
was the same from her veins.
How could she not feel weary
seeing your face and all it's pain.

Nothing you did was appeasing to her
so you tried to stay brave.
Looks like she finally showed you love
When she shed a tear on your grave.

Hush little girl and don't you cry.
Everything is gonna be just fine.
Don't waste your tears or your time.
Cause momma's only love is a dollar and a dime.

After the service
she went home to grieve.
Looking at her pictures
she became relieved.
She found a note
in one of it's sleeves.
That read
"Only you should read"

"Now hush momma and
don't you cry
Cause you only loved a dollar and a dime
The entire time you beat me
I cried.
But I heard Grandma call me the last time."
