I cut my bangs with some rusty kitchen scissors
I screamed his name til the neighbors called the cops
I numbed the pain at the expense of my liver
I don't know what I did next all I know, I couldn't stop

Word got around to the barflies & the baptists
My mama's phone started ringin off the hook
I can hear her now sayin she ain't gonna have it
Don't matter how you feel, it only matters how you look

Go & fix your make up, girl it's just a break up
Run & hide your crazy & start actin like a lady
Cause I raised you better, gotta keep it together
Even when you fall apart
But this ain't my mama's broken heart

Wish I could be just a little less dramatic
Like a kennedy when camelot went down in flames
Leave it to me to be holdin the matches
When the fire trucks show up & there's nobody else to blame

Can't get revenge & keep a spotless reputation
Sometimes revenge is a choice you gotta make
My mama came from a softer generation
Where you get a grip & bite your lip just to save a little face

Go & fix your make up, girl it's just a break up
Run & hide your crazy & start actin like a lady
Cause I raised you better, gotta keep it together
Even when you fall apart
But this ain't my mama's broken heart

Powder your nose, paint your toes
Line your lips & keep em closed
Cross your legs, dot your I's
& never let em see you cry

Go & fix your make up, girl it's just a break up
Run & hide your crazy & start actin like a lady
Cause I raised you better, gotta keep it together
Even when you fall apart
But this ain't my mama's broken heart

    Our parents will never understand what we do after a breakup because they were raised to be lady like and not be bawling and freaking out.

    To me this amazing song means not living and walking in your mothers footsteps. You want to live your own life, make your own mistakes, and please your self no matter what everyone else is saying.
