lyrics

I’m sleeping on the couch/ At my mother’s house/ I’ve been out of work so very long/ Until my piss is clean/ nobody’s going to hire me/ but don’t give up on me, Darlene

Oh, Darlene/ I’m begging darling, please/ I’m on both my knees/ Can we keep the baby, Darlene

We’ll both stay at your mama’s house/ you’ll go to school; I’ll find a job/ Your mom can watch the baby when we need/ When my probation ends in spring/ we’ll have more ways to make ends meet/ Everything will be alright. You’ll see.

Oh, Darlene/ I’m begging darling, please/ I’m on both my knees/ Can we keep the baby, Darlene

I know sometimes we have our fights/ and I’ve been less than faithful once or twice/ I raise my hand to you/ you raise your voice to me/ but this baby might make right for us, Darlene
Oh, Darlene/ Nobody wants to be/ a mother at fifteen/ But can we keep the baby, Darlene
