Please, Mommy, PLease Stay Home With Me





    
Please, Mommy, Please Stay Home With Me?

A mother went out to a party
She left at home her baby son
He cried and begged her not to leave him
But she would not give up her fun
She kissed his cheek and tried to soothe him
But would not heed his childish plea
She heard him call as she was leavin'
"Please mommy please stay home with me."

The mother joined the merrymakers
And soon was lost in trifling joy
The mellow tunes and flirting shadows (<-- *great* line)
Made her forget her baby boy
She danced and laughed and did some drinkin'
The world for her was full of glee
But now and then these words would haunt her
"Please mommy please stay home with me."

She left the party feeling dizzy
The smell of drink was on her breath
She hurried home to find the baby
In raging pain and nearing death
The doctor came and looked so sadly
The case was hopeless he could see
The baby died these words repeating
"Please mommy please stay home with me."

Now mothers don't neglect your children
This story should a lesson be
Do not ignore your baby's pleading
"Please mommy please stay home with me."


The last part ("Now mothers...") is a repeat of the melody line that
goes with the second half of the "regular" verses. I rarely sing this
in public, but when I do, I replace the "mothers" with "parents." JW
