Mama, donít cry for me
WHEN
Iím being disobedient
trying to get fortune and fame by
trading you in for the neighborhood gang.

Mama donít shed a tear
WHEN
I run the streets all night and sleep all day
I disrespect you by talking back, wanting to get my way.

Mama, donít cry for me and donít post my bail
WHEN
The path Iíve chosen, from behind bars I look
All the things you taught me, the ways of God I forsook

Mama, donít cry for me
WHEN
I allow promiscuity make me a parent too soon
My room is no longer mine, itís become the babyís room.

Mama donít cry, to me your tears are beginning to look red
Your falling tears have become unnecessary bloodshed.

I thought I was grown, something within me cried out and told me to go
Mama, please donít cry, I didnít mean to hurt you so.

Mama, youíve shed too many tears for too many years,
Mama, your eyes you must dry, for now itís my turn to cry.
