Theme

This song is about a little girl who's mother is always smoking in front of her, but she wants her to stop. Her father isn't around, so Melanie gives the girl advice to just stay in bed tucked under the covers.

Lyrics

Too ready his little girl you've gone so far
Keep begging until you're smiling you're a movie star
Songs from the 50s your mamas used to sing
Oh, in the kitchen while she's makin' dinner for your family

Keep dreaming baby girl keep your head up high
Waiting for your mama to sing lullabies
Well, daddy isn't here and mamas smoke instead
Oh, heading for the smoke is finally getting wrecked

Closure to encourage and you'll be alright
Sing yourself to sleep we're gonna be afraid
All you have to start always is rivalry
While your lungs are filled with all the smoke you breathe

Don't you worry, now you sleep you little thing
Daddy will come back and therefore he will sing
Sing your precious lullaby to you he will
While mama smokes her cancer to the dawn still

Closure to encourage and you'll be alright
Sing yourself to sleep we're gonna be afraid
All you have to start always is rivalry
While your lungs are filled with all the smoke you breathe

Closure to encourage and you'll be alright
Sing yourself to sleep we're gonna be afraid
All you have to start always is rivalry
While your lungs are filled with all the smoke you breathe
