Mommy, Please Stay Home With Me
by Eddy Arnold, Wally Fowler, and J. Graydon Hall

"This song is based on a true story. A woman I once knew in Nashville was always running around, going out at night and leaving her seven-or-eight-year-old daughter at home alone. She did it so often, that finally the daughter started pleading with her, 'Mommy, don't go out tonight; please stay home with me.'" —Wally Fowler

Mommy, Please Stay Home With Me

A mother went out on a party
She left at home her baby son
He cried and begged her not to leave him
But she would not give up her fun
She kissed his check and tried to soothe him
But she would not heed his childish plea
She heard him call as she was leaving
"Please, Mommy, please stay home with me."

The mother joined the merrymakers
And soon was lost in trifling joy
The mellow tunes and flitting shadows
Made her forget her baby boy
She danced and laughed and did some drinking
The world for her was full of glee
But now and then these words would haunt her
"Please, Mommy, please stay home with me."

The mother now her life would forfeit
To hear her baby's voice again
She grieves to think she rudely left him
To satisfy her wishes vain
Now mothers, don't neglect your duty
This story should a lesson be
Do not ignore your baby's pleading
"Please, Mommy, please stay home with me."
