[Verse:]
Riding in the backseat, sipping on a Pepsi
Looking out the window, driving to the bus stop together
I tell her only three sleeps and I’ll be right back
And then we’re gonna have a good time when I come together

[Verse:]
And I call her every single night
I’ll miss her every day
And if she kissed me and waved goodbye
I could hear her say

[Chorus:]
Stay at home, mother
Stay at home
Stay at home, mother
Stay at home

[Verse:]
I’ve been working late nights making up for the times
That I wasn’t in the crowd cheering out loud at our school plays
Tickets to a circus, maybe a new bike
I just want her to know that I love her more than working all day

[Verse:]
But the price will never measure up
To what’s inside a box
While I run along around the world
She tells me to stop

[Chorus:]
And stay at home, mother
Stay at home
Stay at home, mother
Stay at home

[Verse:]
We could play house and pretend
That tomorrow you won’t be gone
Stay at home, mother
Stay at home

[Bridge:]
I wish some things were different
Doesn’t change one memory
My little girl grew up
While I was too busy to see
That she’s become the one thing
That I could never be

[Chorus:]
Stay at home, mother
Stay at home
Stay at home, mother
Stay at home

[Verse:]
She could have a house and couple kids
And never have to be involved
As a stay at home mother
Stay at home mother
Stay at home….
