Who' s child am I gonna be tonight?
Who' s bed am I gonna sleep in tonight?
You told the other ones
I was your brother's child
You told the ones
I was your sister's child
Everytime they come to the house
I got to change my name
Everytime they come to the house
I got to change my identity
Whose child am I gonna be tonight?
As he walked away with tears in his eyes
I felt every pain that he felt
I cried every tear that he cried
Mama why?......

Chorus:
I wish you could love me the way I am

Whose dogs are gonna be my friends tonight?
Whose bin am I gonna eat out of tonight?
The welfare people when they come
To the house you told me to say nothing
Every time they wanna take me away
You say everything is alright
Whos bins am I gonna eat out of tonight?
As he walked away with tears in his eyes
I felt every pain that he felt
I cried every tear that he cried
Mama why?.......

Chorus:
I wish you could love me the way I am

    Love is not materialistic, is not wealth, is not what ever we can imagine, it is the innermost feeling. When we want to love let's love the person, regardless of poverty or bad looking. Some girls love money or wealth and other things, let love come fro the depth of heart; in rich or poor! Love covers everything & has no limit.
