​Take One Away

This song is by Burton Cummings and appears on the album Plus Signs (1990).

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
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, oh, just an hour ago
She might have been alive, you know
But 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
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, yes I was
And now I can hear you, you're pleading on the radio
Mama, I've joined the church, you know
I've been passing out bibles
Take one away
Take one away
Take one away, yeah
