SHE PAID THE RENT

SHE PAID THE RENT

This is how 
she got the job
to pay the rent
that man did drink
the rent to house
to house the kids
that man did want
the kids 
that cried
throughout the night 

This is how 
She crashed the car
To get to job
To help the man
The man who drank
To pay the rent
To house the kids 
That man did want
The kids
 that cried 
Throughout the night

This is how
The babe was born
Before its time
When car did crash
To get to job
To help the man
The man that drank
To pay the rent
To house the kids
That man did want
The kids 
that cried
Throughout the night

This is how
the babe 
Did die
Before its time
From crash in car
To get to job
To help the man
Who drank the rent
To house the babes 
The man did want
The babes 
that cried
Throughout the night

This is how
she packed the kids
to leave the man
that drank the rent
the rent to house
to house the kids
that man did want
the kids
 that cried
throughout the night

This is how
she lived in peace
without a man
and got a job
and bought a house
to house the babes
that she did want
the babes
that
slept
throughout 
the 
night.
