Sometimes, when band members love each other very much, they come together and play their instruments. Then, ten minutes later, a song is born about a knocked up woman who turns to prostitution and becomes addicted to crack.


My pretty baby, he loves me swell
But I been puttin' him through all sorts of hell
He didn't get me that new car, so he couldn't come home
He didn't satisfy my needs, so he slept alone

My pretty baby, he loves me fine
But everybody tells him I'm a waste of his time
They say that I'm only using him to buy me things
But all I ever really wanted was a wedding ring

Woke up this morning
He'd already gone
Packed his shit, took the car and left
By eight in the morning
Said he never could love a drunk so he never loved me
No he never could love a slut so he never loved

No he never never never never loved
No he never never never never loved
No he never never never never loved never loved me

My baby daddy's got a baby girl
She looks just like her father and she's my world
But I can't afford the diapers and I can't pay rent
Men think money for sex is money well spent

I don't know if he's coming home
My baby's getting bigger, she is almost grown
She doesn't know what I do to feed her
And when she says she's fine I don't believe her

Powder on the table and men on the couch
I sent her away, she's staying at a friends house
I couldn't let her see me like this
The world is hard
