My baby daddy never come to hear me sing, when I ask him for some money it's the same old thing
He ain't got no dough, spent it all on blow and he said he had to pawn my wedding ring
He ain't ever offered no ring to me and I can see I got a long row to hoe
Somebody's gotta do it, he ain't gonna do it, guess I'm doing it by myself

Who's gonna raise these babies?
These babies that we made
Who's gonna teach them all the things that they need to know someday?
To be patient, kind, sharp as an arrow, sticking pretty close to the straight & narrow
Who's gonna raise these babies?
These babies that we made

The man that I was married to for 18 years packed his get out bag and drank 18 beers. Left a dish in the sink for every year, that's the last I saw of him
Last I heard he was on the run cause he robbed a Little Cricket with a stolen gun. Wouldn't you know my teenage son wants to grow up to be just like him

Who's gonna raise these babies?
These babies that we made
Who's gonna teach them all the things that they need to know someday?
To be patient, kind, sharp as an arrow, sticking pretty close to the straight & narrow
Who's gonna raise these babies?
These babies that we made

My big brother raised me all by himself, my daddy died and my mother left. He worked the railroad to provide our needs, he lied about his age, he was just 16
Now he's married to a girl from Bowling Green, she was a central Kentucky rodeo queen
I rock the baby in a rocking chair while they pick weeds in the evening air

Who's gonna raise these babies?
These babies that we made
Who's gonna teach them all the things that they need to learn someday?
To be patient, kind, sharp as an arrow, sticking pretty close to the straight & narrow
Who's gonna raise these babies?
These babies that we made
