Nobody’s Baby

She’s worn so weary and always blue

Been nobody’s baby her whole life through

She’s got no family or heart-strung ties

There’s only her hand wiping tired eyes

She works odd jobs off and on week long

Uneducated they treat her wrong

She stays real quiet cause the work she needs

There’s bills to pay and herself to feed

On Friday nights though the only day

Nobody’s baby goes out to play

She zips the dress from the Goodwill store

And slips on heels laying by the door

With hair fixed up and her make-up on

A painted smile and then she’s gone

Cause Friday nights at the corner bar

Nobody’s baby is quite the star
