Stand and Deliver   

5:00 and the day has begun
got to get up, get on my way, before the sun
hey little baby, upon the bed
time to wake up, 'cause momma must bring home the bread

stand and deliver
i will do what i must so we survive
stand and deliver
it's so hard to be gentle in these times

your daddy's down in the county jail
you know he loves you, but daddy he was bound to fail
a little boy in his grown up clothes
i don't feel sorry for him anymore, it's the life he chose

stand and deliver
i will do what i must so we survive
stand and deliver
it's so hard to be gentle in these times

i found out that our dreams were only fairy tales
all your talking was make believe
now that your gone, i must not fail

stand and deliver
i will do what i must so we survive
stand and deliver
it's so hard to be gentle in these times
