The Guess Who – Take One Away lyrics

TAKE ONE AWAY
WRITERS BURTON CUMMINGS, BILL IVENIUK

One cloudless morning
Was it day or night
The sun and the moon were bright
Take one away

Two holy sisters lost in the desert dry
From the weight the old mule will die
Take one away

Oh mama sit down, I think it's time you knew
The day I first came to you, I was dead on arrival
And now I can hear you pleading on the radio
Mama I've joined the church you know
And I've been passing out bibles
Take one away

Three babies conceived
She couldn't afford them all
The curtain begins to fall
Take one away

Five o'clock in the morning
Aw just an hour ago
She might have been alive you know
They took one away

Oh mama sit down, I think it's time you knew
The day I first came to you, I was dead on arrival
And now I can hear you pleading on the radio
Mama I've joined the church you know
And I've been passing out bibles
Take one away

Oh mama sit down, I think it's time you knew
The day I first came to you I was dead on arrival
And now I can hear you pleading on the radio
Mama I've joined the church you know
And I've been passing out bibles
Take one away
