Mommy Please Stay Home With Me

This song is by The Browns and appears on the album Grand Ole Opry Favorites (1964) and on the compilation album The Three Bells (1993).

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 drink was 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...
