Turned away from the good ones
And I got burned by the bad
I wouldn’t do it all over again
If I knew what I had
Now everybody is a mother and a wife
And still I wander through
This lonely gypsy life

I better be my own most loving parent
Be my own most beloved child
Be my own most willing lover
And let my spirit run wild

One day soon I will be fatherless and motherless
Each year I reach an age I never saw before
I thought by now that a couple of kids would be playing on the floor
But I made my bed and now here I lie
With only me to blame
With these old bones and wrinkled freckled skin
And my old maiden name

I better be my own most loving parent
Be my own most beloved child
Be my own most willing lover
And let my spirit run wild

I want to watch the world
Through the eyes of a baby
New and beautiful
Mystical and crazy
I want to have a strong man by my side
You know I tried, I tried

I’m gonna be my own most loving parent
Be my own most beloved child
Wrap my own loving arms around me
And let my tears run wild

I better be my own most loving parent
Be my own most beloved child
