Not giving up
Little Becky was a beautiful girl
Who loved her dress and loved to whirl.
Silly Sammy was a boy
Who loved the army and play toy
Becky and Sammy met one day
And fell in love right away.
They married just the following year
Fumbling their vows with a tear.
They had a baby and got a new car
Sammy was not home; he was out at a bar.
When Becky would ask him “where did you go?”
He would laugh and say, “Wouldn’t you like to know?!”
The baby grew up and wanted to play
So, Becky would give in and do it his way.
She loved that kid like nobody knew
But drunk ole Sammy made her quite blue.
She tried to address the things that matter
Like making money, staying home, mostly the latter.
Sammy said he did not want to hear
Becky’s voice that near to his ear.
He told her once “just go away
The boy can go, or he can stay.”
Well Becky was not leaving her kid
Was it her or something she did?
She still loved her Sammy through thick and thin
His love and acceptance she vowed she would win.
