Stay at Home Mother (Sheryl Crow)

Riding in the backseat, sipping on a Pepsi Looking out the window, driving to the bus stop together I tell her only three sleeps and I'll be right back And then we're gonna have a good time when I come together And I call her every single night I'll miss her every day And if she kissed me and waved goodbye I could hear her say Stay at home, mother Stay at home Stay at home, mother Stay at home I've been working late nights making up for the times That I wasn't in the crowd cheering out loud at our school plays Tickets to a circus, maybe a new bike I just want her to know that I love her more than working all day But the price will never measure up To what's inside a box While I run along around the world She tells me to stop And stay at home, mother Stay at home Stay at home, mother Stay at home We could play house and pretend That tomorrow you won't be gone Stay at home, mother Stay at home I wish some things were different Doesn't change one memory My little girl grew up While I was too busy to see That she's become the one thing That I could never be Stay at home, mother Stay at home Stay at home, mother Stay at home She could have a house and couple kids And never have to be involved As a stay at home mother Stay at home mother Stay at home...
