Sheryl Crow – Stay At Home Mother lyrics

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

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

Stay at home, mother
Stay at home
Stay at home, mother
Stay at home

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

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

And stay at home, mother
Stay at home
Stay at home, mother
Stay at home

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

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

Stay at home, mother
Stay at home
Stay at home, mother
Stay at home

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….
