How Much Does It Cost

By Sonia Lewis | Posted 10/31/2001

There seems to be a misconception
That I should pay you for your time--
But I did not pay you to lie down
And plant me in mom
I did not pay you to beg my mother
Not to give me away
And daddy I should not have to pay you
To spend time with me each day
Everyone tells me
If you don't want me it's your loss
But I want your time daddy
So how much does it cost?
