Momma, I'm sorry
You know I never meant to hurt you, no
But I'm in love with the boy next door
Momma, please understand
And momma, I'm so sorry
But I don't think that I can let him go
I'm in love with the boy next door

Starring at your picture, my vision is blur
My eyes are feeling petite with every word
They're trying to tell me, I'm only a kid and that I
Can't be in love, I don't know what it is

And they keep trying to convince me
That you ain't no good for me
(You're to young to know, baby, just let it go)
And they just won't accept what we are
And what we can be
(So this letter reads)
Momma, please understand

Momma, I'm sorry
You know I never meant to hurt you, no
But I'm in love with the boy next door
Momma, please understand
And momma, I'm so sorry
But I don't think that I can let him go
I'm in love with the boy next door

And I know that she thinks that I'm young and naive
Don't know what's good for me, think of your future
She says with tears in her eyes
(Don't throw away your dreams)
About loving some guy

Momma please, have more faith in me
You didn't raise a fool, I'm gonna stay by ya side
Though I know you don't want me to
So this letter reads
Momma, please understand

Momma, I'm sorry
You know I never meant to hurt you, no
But I'm in love with the boy next door
Momma, please understand
And momma, I'm so sorry
But I don't think that I can let him go
I'm in love with the boy next door

Nothing I can say to make you feel the way you feel
But finally I found the love that I know is real, really real
And I ain't gonna give it up, not for nothing
I ain't gonna give it up
(No)
So momma won't you please understand the way I feel
Please understand

Momma, I'm sorry
You know I never meant to hurt you, no
But I'm in love with the boy next door
Momma, please understand
And momma, I'm so sorry
But I don't think that I can let him go
I'm in love with the boy next door
