Mommy I wish

Mommy I wish

I wish I could tell you what they did to me in school today

Mommy I wish

Mommy I wish

I wish I could tell you what they did to me in school


The school bus is waiting, waiting outside,

Mommy, please don’t make me go.

Don’t you remember how i cried?

There’s so many things you just don’t know…oh no


Mommy I wish

Mommy I wish

I wish I could tell you what they did to me in school today

Mommy I wish

Mommy I wish

I wish I could tell you what they did to me in school


The teacher grabs me by my head,

She hurts me every day.

You know it’s nothing that I said.

I’m safe at home, why can’t I stay?


Mommy I wish

Mommy I wish

I wish I could tell you what they did to me in school today

Mommy I wish

Mommy I wish

I wish I could tell you what they did to me in school


I know you and daddy love me,

I know how much you care.

They lie about the bruises you see,

Mommy, please don’t take me there.


Mommy I wish

Mommy I wish

I wish I could tell you what they did to me in school today

Mommy I wish

Mommy I wish

I wish I could tell you what they did to me in school
