Lyrics

JJ's crying
She's got a little baby
That keeps her locked at home
She don't care no more about Lil' J
She's gonna have some fun

Now JJ's flying
Had a little too much stripped off her pride
Why does she keep letting those strangers come inside?
All her life
She's wanted
Daydreams of her mind
Now she feels she's got to leave it all behind

[Chorus]
Mama 16
What about your dreams?
Crying baby ain't no fantasy
Mama 16
Don't sell your dreams
Got to keep on trying to be free

JJ
Lord, she can't stop her rhyme
She's got troubles to share
Long before she's got the time

She ain't even trying
She kicks off her child
Girl, you gotta live up to your faces of disguise
All her life
There'll be changes
As you build yourself
But only you can kill your dreams
Up on a shelf

Mama 16
What about your dreams?
Crying baby ain't no fantasy
Mama 16
Don't sell your dreams
Got to keep on trying to be free

[Guitar Solo]

JJ's flying
Had a little too much stripped off her pride
Girl, you gotta live up to your faces of disguise
All your life
There'll be changes
As you build yourself
But only you can kill your dreams
Up on a shelf

Mama 16
What about your dreams?
Crying baby ain't no fantasy
Mama 16
Don't sell your dreams
Got to keep on trying to be free
