Mommy, I was a good girl, I did what I was told,
I went to school, I got straight A's? I even got the gold!
But Mommy, when I went school that day,
I never said goodbye.
I'm sorry Mommy. I had to go. But Mommy, please don't cry.
When Johnny shot the gun, he hit me and another,
And all because Johnny
Got the gun from his older brother.
Mommy, please tell Daddy,
That I love him very much,
And please tell Chris; my boyfriend
That it wasn't just a crush.
And tell my little sister;
That she is the only one now,
And tell my dear sweet grandmother
I'll by waiting for her now, And
tell my wonderful friends
That they always were the best;
Mommy, I'm not the first,
I'm no better than the rest.
Mommy, tell my teachers;
I won't show up for class,
And never to forget this,
And please don't let this pass.
Mommy, why'd it have to be me??
No one deserves this,
Mommy, warn the others,
Mommy I left without a kiss.
And Mommy tell the doctors
I know they really did try,
I think I even saw a doctor,
Trying not to cry.
Mommy, I'm slowly dying
With a bullet in my chest,
But Mommy please remember, I'm in heaven with the rest.
Mommy I ran as fast as I could,
When I heard that crack,
Mommy, listen to me if you would,
I wanted to go to college
I wanted to try things that were new,
I guess I'm not going with Daddy
On that trip to the new zoo.
I wanted to get married,
I wanted to have a kid,
I wanted to be an actress,
Mommy, I wanted to live.
But Mommy I must go now,
The time is getting late,
Mommy, tell my Chris, I'm sorry but I had to cancel the date.
I love you Mommy, I always have,
I know; you know it's true, And
Mommy all I wanted to say is,
"Mommy, I love you."
