The women from the PTA whisper
They sideways glace when I walk by
They say look how far she's fallen,
And anit it just appallin'
While they gossip grocery line

But a woman's gotta do
What a woman's gotta do
Cause there's always rent to pay
But when your kids need new shoes,
There's nothin' left to do
But to put my pride away.

But :I, I fly over this town
When the sky bleeds
And the bars all close down
But I still hope and I pray
For something, someday

I tried cleanin' houses
And worked at the dollar mart
But to see my baby boys go hungry
It very nearly broke my heart

I'm not cheap and I'm not easy
I'm just paradin' my groceries
And I can handle calls and stares
For just a few more years
'Til no one wants to look at me

But :I, I fly over this town
When the sky bleeds
And the bars all close down
But I still hope and I pray
For something, someday

I like to stop in after workin
For little kindness and a cup of joe
And the waitress is always nice to me
Even though I think she knows.

She always asks me how I doin
If my kids caught that awful flu
Once she put her hand on my hand
And said
"Honey, you just do whatcha gotta do."
