Mommy Please Stay Home With Me

Song Author Eddy Arnold , Wally Fowler og J. Graydon Hall Performer: Eddy Arnold Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]A mother went out [F]on a [C]party
She left at home her baby [G7]son   
He cried and [C]begged her [F]not to [C]leave him
But she would not [G7]give up her [C]fun  

She kissed his cheek and [F]tried to [C]soothe him
But would not heed his childish [G7]plea   
She heard him [C]call as [F]she was [C]leaving
Please mommy please stay [G7]home with [C]me  

The mother joined [F]the merry[C]makers
And soon was lost in trifling [G7]joy   
The mellow [C]tunes and [F]flitting [C]shadows
M[G7]ade   [C] her forget her baby boy

She danced and laughed and [F]did some [C]drinking
The world for her was full of [G7]glee   
But now and [C]then these words [F]would haunt [C]her  
Please mommy please stay [G7]home with [C]me  

She left the party [F]feeling [C]dizzy
The smell of drinking on her [G7]breath
She hurried [C]home to [F]find her [C]baby
In raging pain and [G7]nearing [C]death

The doctor came and [F]looked on [C]sadly
The case was hopeless he could [G7]see   
The baby [C]died these [F]words r[C]epeating
Please mommy please stay [G7]home with [C]me  

The mother now her [F]life would [C]forfeit
To hear her baby's voice [G7]again
She grieved to [C]think she [F]rudely left [C]him  
To satisfy her [G7]wishes [C]vein

Now mothers don't [F]neglect your [C]duty
This story should a lesson [G7]be   
Do not [C]ignore your [F]baby's [C]pleading
Please mommy please stay [G7]home with [C]me  


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

She left the party feeling dizzy
The smell of drinking on her breath
She hurried home to find her baby
In raging pain and nearing death

The doctor came and looked on sadly
The case was hopeless he could see
The baby died 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 grieved to think she rudely left him
To satisfy her wishes vein

Now mothers don't neglect your duty
This story should a lesson be
Do not ignore your baby's pleading
Please mommy please stay home with me
