The Lovelites - How can I tell my Mom and Dad

English
A A

How can I tell my Mom and Dad

How can I tell my mom and dad
That I've been bad
How can I tell my mom and dad
That I've been bad
 
Will they understand
How much I love that man
And oh, will they ever know
How much he's hurt me so
 
I know I was a fool
To be loved by you
But I've got to find a way
But what can I say
 
How can I tell my mom and dad
(Help me explain, help me explain) That I've been bad
(This misery) How can I tell my mom and dad
(Oh, please) That I've been bad
 
He told me that he loved me
And that our love was true
Oh, but when we made me mother-to-be
He disappeared on me
 
Now I'm so ashamed
'Cause you quit the game
And left me here to be
In all this misery
 
How can I tell my mom and dad
(Help me explain, help me explain) That I've been bad
(This misery) How can I tell my mom and dad
(Oh, please) That I've been bad
 
Should I go up to mama
And say, "Guess what I've done" {No-no}
Or disappear in the night
And let them notice I'm gone {No-no}
 
Or should I go out and do
Somethin' I wouldn't want to {No-no}
Or stand up like a big girl
And tell 'em about me and you
 
How can I tell my mom and dad
(Help me explain, help me explain) That I've been bad
(This misery) How can I tell my mom and dad
(Oh, please) That I've been bad (Whoa...)
 
Should I go up to mama
And say, "Guess what I've done" {No-no}
Or disappear in the night
And let them notice I'm gone {No-no}
 
Or should I go out and do
Somethin' I wouldn't want to {No-no}
Or stand up like a big girl
And shout about me and you
 
How can I tell my mom and dad
(Help me explain, help me explain) That I've been bad
(This misery) How can I tell my mom and dad
(Oh, please) That I've been bad
 
How can I tell my mom and dad
(Yes, he will) That I've been bad
(Mom's so upset that she'll wanna die) How can I tell my mom and dad
(Help me) That I've been bad
 
How-how-how-how I've been bad
(Help me explain to them he does love me)
How-how-how-how I've been bad
 
Thanks!
