Playboy Mummy

In my platforms
I hit the floor
fell face down
didn’t help my brain out
then the baby came
before I found
the magic how
to keep her happy
I never was the fantasy
of what you want
wanted me to be

but don’t judge me so harsh little girl
so you got a playboy mommy
but when you tell them my name
you wanna cross that bridge all on your own
little girl they’ll do you no harm
cause they know your playboy mommy
but when you tell ‘em my name
from here to Birmingham
I got a few friends

I never was there was there when it counts
I get my way
you’re so like me
you seemed ashamed
ashamed that I was
a good friend of American soldiers
I’ll say it loud here by your grave
those angels can’t
ever take my place

Don’t judge me so harsh little girl
you got a playboy mommy
but when you tell ‘em my name
you wanna cross that bridge all on your own
little girl they’ll do you no harm
cause they know your playboy mommy
but you just tell ‘em my name
you tell ‘em my name
I got a few friends

somewhere where the the orchids grow
I can’t find those church bells
that played when you died
played Gloria
talkin bout
Hosanah

don’t judge me so harsh little girl
you got a playboy mommy
come home
but when you tell them soldiers my name
and cross that bridge all on your own
little girl they’ll do you no harm
cause they know your playboy mommy
but I’ll be home I’ll be home
to take you in my arms
