Mama don't leave, mama don't stay
We don't know what game to play
This baby calf fell to earth
We don't know just what she's worth

Mama don't leave, mama don't stay
We don't know what game to play
This baby calf tell to earth
We don't know just what she's worth

At the top of the stairs, with a crash she hit the ground
She fell backwards, backwards without a sound
Backwards without a sound

With a backhand at night, with a crash she hit the ground
She fell backwards, backwards without a sound
Backwards without a sound

Until she hit the ground
Until she hit the ground

Oh leave me here to stay
Oh I was meant to die this way
Oh leave me here to stay
Oh I was meant to die this way

And the wind rolled, and the rain came
And we all know, it was not her way
And the wind rolled, and the rain came
And we all know, it was not my way

Oh Katherine, are you in heaven now
Oh my Katherine, are you in heaven now
Oh sweet Katherine, are you in heaven now
Oh my Katherine, are you in heaven now

Cause I was once just like you
And how it grew and how it grew
All these dreams of human beings
And all these wells, all these springs
I just don't know what to do, what to do
What to do

Mama don't leave, mama don't stay
We don't know what game to play
This baby calf fell to earth
We don't know just what she's worth
