Mommy won’t you tell me
what life was like for you
when you were just like me
how you never did
what grandma told you to
and how fair life will never be

Mommy won’t you explain
how things haven’t changed
since you did all the things
I’m not to do
and how I can make decisions
if I can prove
that I’m not as foolish as you

Mommy won’t you help me
fix my problems
I know you’ve seen
this all before
I’m glad you don’t think
this doesn’t happen
but now I need help even more

Mommy I’m not ready
to be on my own
and your not ready
to let me go
So why don’t you tell me
how things haven’t changed
I know you’ve seen this all before.

Mommy I’m not ready to walk out
your door.
