Lyrics

play Call it love and devotion
play Call it the mom’s adoration (foundation)
play A special bond of creation, hah
play For all the single mums out there
play Going through frustration
play Clean Bandit,
play Sean-Da-Paul,
play Anne-marie, sing,
play make them hear

play She works the night, by the water
play She's gonna stress,
play so far away from my father's daughter
play She just wants a life for her baby
play All on her own, no one will come
play She's got to save him (daily struggle)

play She tells him "ooh love"
play No one's ever gonna hurt you, love
play I'm gonna give you all of my love
play Nobody matters like you
play (stay up there, stay up there)
play She tells him
play "your life ain't gonna be nothing like my life
play (straight)
play You're gonna grow and have a good life
play I'm gonna do what I've got to do"
play (stay up there, stay up there)

play So, rockabye baby, rockabye
play I'm gonna rock you
play Rockabye baby, don't you cry
play Somebody's got you
play Rockabye baby, rockabye

play Facing the hard life without no fear
play Just see and know that you really care
play 'Cause any obstacle come you well prepared
play And no mamma you never shed tear
play 'Cause you haffi set things year after year
play And you give the youth love beyond compare
play You find the school fee and the bus fare
play Hmmmm more when paps disappear
play In a wrong bar can't find him nowhere
play Steadily you work flow,
play heavily you know so you nah stop
play No time no time fi a jeer

play Now she gotta a six year old
play Trying to keep him warm
play Trying to keep all the cold
play When he looks her in the eyes
play He don't know he's safe when she says
play "Ooh love"
play No one's ever gonna hurt you, love
play I'm gonna give you all of my love
play Nobody matters like you
