Mom's Day Out

The damn alarm it wakes me
The time is six oíclock
I start the coffee, grab my cup
Waiting for the caffeine shock

I wake up all the kiddies
And we find all the lost shoes
Socks donít match, weíre running late
No one wears the clothes I choose

Theyíre mismatched but at least theyíre fed
I strap all the three in
Iím still in my pajamas
Still waking up, itís kicking in

I drop the kids at school
I drive to the Walmart
I get down and I hurry
And I lose the list I brought

Iím frazzled and Iím sleep deprived
From waking up the night before
We need some milk and bread and eggs
And thereís something, Iím not sure

I canít seem to remember
All the things I need to get
I yawn and stand within the store
What the fuck did I forget?

I know my husbandís out at work
I send a text but no response
I end up in the veggie side
Getting veggies no one wants

I go up to the counter
Picking out a magazine
Still I yawn, Iím half asleep
From outside I hear a scream

I stand in line, Iíve yet to pay
I see a manager run by
I slide across my credit card
Then I slip it back inside

I zip my purse and grab my bags
And I slowly leave the store
So many cops and firetrucks
Thatís when my heart, it hits the floor

I run up to my minivan
Thereís glass shattered all around
The cop he holds my baby girl
And she doesnít make a sound

I beg to let me hold her
But they just take her away
She is hauled off in an ambulance
Iím left behind, just left to pray

They canít control my screaming
I think I went into shock
How can I ever forgive myself?
For the baby I forgot
