Mommy Please Stay Home With Me Lyrics

A mother went out on a party she left at home her baby son
He cried and begged her not to leave him but she would not give up her fun
She kissed his cheek and tried to soothe him but would not heed his childish plea
She heard him call as she was leaving please mommy please stay home with me
The mother joined the merrymakers and soon was lost in trifling joy
The mellow tunes and flitting shadows made her forget her baby boy
She danced and laughed and did some drinking the world for her was full of glee
But now and then these words would haunt her please mommy please stay home with me
[ piano ]
She left the party feeling dizzy the smell of drink was on her breath
She hurried home to find her baby in raging pain and nearly dead So doctor came and looked on sadly the case was hopeless he could see
The baby dies these words repeating please mommy please stay home with me
The mother now her life would forfeit to hear her baby's voice again
She grieves to think she rudely left him to satisfy her wishes vain
Now mothers don't neglect your duty the story should a lesson be
Do not ignore your baby's pleading please mommy please stay home with me
