Nancy McCallion: Lyrics

Put the Baby in the Shopping Cart

Put the Baby in the Shopping Cart

By Nancy McCallion

 

The sun was shinning through the cracks in the ceiling like everyday

And the baby wake up crying for her mama in the usual way

And I got on the bus and I went downtown

And it look like the sky was falling down

Put the baby in the shopping cart and run

 

Put the baby in the shopping cart and run

Make your daughter understand

Somebody's killing somebody again

Put the baby in the shopping cart and run

 

Did I wake up from some crazy dream of an easy life?

Did I miss a memo somewhere, am I living right?

Yesterday I'm dealing with a leaky roof

Today I'm wishing I was fireproof

Put the baby in the shopping cart and run

 

Put the baby in the shopping cart and run

Make your daughter understand

Somebody's killing somebody again

Put the baby in the shopping cart and run

 

There's somebody killing somebody somewhere everyday

Winter's coming and the bombs are falling someplace far away

And I got no power o're the powers that be

I'm just a little guy with a big TV

Put the baby in the shopping cart and run

 

Put the baby in the shopping cart and run

Make your daughter understand

Somebody's killing somebody again

Put the baby in the shopping cart and run
