You make a choice
It's such an easy move
Nobody disapproves

You come unprepared
But to interrupt
Would surely be uncouth

And when your time comes 'round
And he's nowhere to be found
You wait for colour red

And when the ring you get
Is not the one you want
Then you begin to plot somebody's death
Thinking

Oh, your pretty baby won't know
Oh, Your pretty babe

Maybe another time
And another place
A boy or girl could grow

But now you just can't wait
You just can't wait
To let it go

You couldn't bear this thing
To save your life
Suppose you start to show

So you call the doctor
But who's gonna nurse away
The little voice inside when it cries
You'll curse this day

    This song is clearly about abortion, killing a child because it doesn't seem like the right time to have it. The major key, the upbeat chorus, makes it sneak up on you (like another much better song by this group, called don't, this way).
