My baby was dying
Turning so blue
Four feet from me dying
My head was like glue
Loaded and sinking
To the vegetable zone
She just kept on sinking
Now she's mineral and bone

I couldn't save my baby
We lived on the first floor
We lived in two rooms
Now my poor baby
She lives with the worms
A head full of rocks
It's a heavy heavy head
I was watching a movie
Where someone looked dead
Now people that whisper
Now people they stare
They say I couldn't save her
Even though I was right there

I couldn't save my baby
We lived on the first floor
We lived in two rooms
Now poor baby
She lives with the worms
