mawma, di’n’t you teach me to sleep fla’?
that i wa’n’t one to sleep a’roun’ an’ a’roun’?

i di’n’t mean ta make ya’ll mad an’ such.
all i wan’ed was to be yer fav’rite girl.
an’ all i di’ was make ya mad an’ such.
an’ i think you’ve lost yer fav’rite girl.

mawma, i hear day say i’m a-have-ta get put down,
and i don’ wan’ to be put down at all.
mawma, i hear day say i’m a-have-to-get laid down,
and i don’ wan’ to be scare’ at all.

i di’n’t mean ta make ya’ll mad an’ such.
all i wan’ed was to be yer fav’rite girl.
an’ all i di’ was make ya mad an’ such.
an’ i think you’ve lost yer fav’rite girl.

mawma, they say i’m a-sleep fla’ foreva
’cause things don’ work out nice an’ right.
mawma, they say i’m a-rest fla’ foreva
’cause things don’ work out nice an’ right.

i di’n’t mean ta make ya’ll mad an’ such.
all i wan’ed was to be yer fav’rite girl.
an’ all i di’ was make ya mad an’ such.
an’ i think you’ve lost yer fav’rite girl.

but, mawma, you di’n’t teach me to sleep fla’,
and so i di’ roll ‘roun’ an’ ‘roun’.
and mawma, you di’n’t teach me to sleep fla’,
and so foreva i’m a-layin’ in the groun’.
