"Big Bad World" as written by and Tony Powers Abe Fisher....
My momma sat me on her knee
And this is what she said to me
You may think life a Christmas tree
But let me tell you this

Boys will cheat and lie
And make you wanna cry
They'll make you love them so
And then say goodbye
They'll treat you like fool now
They won't respect you no how
I found out from you last night
That my momma was oh so right
And though the moon was shining oh so bright
It's a big bad world
A big bad world

They make you sit and wait
For them to come around
Yes they will now
And then they just forget you
They get hung up downtown
They tell you that they need you
But girl how they mislead you
Now I know that it's all true
My momma must have really knew
'cause yesterday I fell for you
It's a big bad world
A big bad world

They tell you that they need you
But girl how they mislead you
My momma was oh so right
They only want to hold you tight
And then they drop right out of sight
It's a big bad world
A big bad world
A big bad world
Momma didn't lie
