And it have caused me to weep

An it caused me to moan
You know that love done caused
Me to leave my happy home

Oh love'll lie
Oh love, just

Oh love, oh

Oh, love'll die
Ooh, love
Oh love, oh careless
Now you can see me
What a careless love have

My mother, she told me
When I was a child

My mother, told me

My mother, she told me

When I was a child
'These old, battle axe women
Son, gon' run you wild'

Then I said, 'That's the reason'
Oh careless love'

She used to kneel an pray
Oh, my mama
She used to kneel an she'd pray
An I b'lieve I heard her say
'Oh Lord, will you see my child, today
And you see what this careless love
Done causin?'

And you can just see, now
What a careless love have done
Now, you can just see
What careless love have done

An you now, you can
You can
You can just see
What careless love have done
An you know it done
Caused me to do a lot of things wrong

An that caused me to
Leave my happy home.
