Being A Mother

What did I do wrong?

Being a mother
A love like no other
Thats how I feel
Love thats so real

My mother
Didn't feel the same
What did I do wrong?
Is that my shame?

She left us
Sleeping babies in our beds
Put brandy in our bottles
Gave us fuzzy heads

Dad came home
Found us home alone
Our mother packed and gone
He knew something was wrong

He saw red
He was really angry
When he checked our bottles
And smelt brandy

She left us
I was 6 months old
My brother just two
My dad wasn't old

But he did
What she did not
He raised us himself
She put up no fight

Didn't even
Turn up at court
For the custody hearing
And their divorce

Still hurts today
She didn't want me
Back then mothers leaving
It was hard for us three

We didn't have much money
I had to have short hair
I looked like a boy
But I didn't care

I had the best dad
If not the best mum
My life compared
Was better than some.
