Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Be Double-Promoted

Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Bikers
Babies aren’t easy to raise, but they’re precious to hold;
To you, they’re worth much more than all the world’s silver and gold.
Grabbing your finger while stealing your heart –
Each arrival defines a new day;
But no matter how hard you try to protect them,
One day they must find their own way.

Mamas, don’t let your babies be double-promoted;
Don’t dress’em in sailor pants, Lord knows that sucks –
Let’em wear blue jeans and t-shirts and such.
Mamas, don’t let your babies be double-promoted;
‘Cause smaller but smarter leaves something to prove
Their late-coming growth spurt makes worse.

Babies – like monkeys – will mimic whatever you show them;
Your love is reflected – just as is your anger and fright.
God never taught’em to lie, steal or murder –
Or that besting their brother is cool;
So if you raise them to eat – or if not – to be eaten
Remember they just might eat you…

Mamas, don’t let your babies be double-promoted;
Don’t dress’em like Mini-Me’s, Lord knows that sucks –
Let’em wear blue jeans and t-shirts and such.
Mamas, don’t let your babies be double-promoted;
‘Cause smarter but younger leaves something to prove
Their lack of maturity makes worse.
