Mama why does he treat me so cold
Why do I feel so old
How long has he treated me unkind
Or have I always been so blind

I'm the widow of a living man

Why can't the times stay the same
Now I am begging him to change
What about all the plans we made
Now I am so afraid

I'm the widow of a living man

Why does he hurt me so
