  • Hey, mama, how do you get a red-wine stain
    Out of your favorite dress?
    Black mascara off a pillow case
    Cure a one-too-many headache
    Mama, can I come and maybe stay a few days?
    This weekend or next
    And hey, how do you get a red-wine stain
    Out of your favorite dress?

    How does he sleep at night?
    Mama, the nerve of this guy
    To leave me so easy
    Am I gonna be alright?
    I wanna kick myself for fallin' so hard
    Mama, can you die from a broken heart?

    Can you ask daddy if he's got time
    To come and look at my front door?
    It got slammed last night
    And now it don't close right
    And just promise that you won't tell him everything
    And keep that pistol in the drawer
    Mama, please don't say
    I'm gonna laugh about this someday
    You didn't see the way he drove away

    How does he sleep at night?
    Mama, the nerve of this guy
    To leave me so easy
    Am I gonna be alright?
    I wanna kick myself for fallin' so hard
    Mama, can you die from a broken heart?
    Oh, a broken heart

    Can your knees give out from prayin' so hard? (Prayin' so hard)
    Can you go blind from cryin' in the dark? (In the dark)
    Was it ever really real
    If he don't feel like I feel?

    How does he sleep at night?
    Mama, the nerve of this guy
    To leave me so easy
    Am I gonna be alright?

    How does he sleep at night?
    Mama, the nerve of this guy
    To leave me so easy
    Am I gonna be alright?
    I wanna kick myself for fallin' so hard
    Mama, can you die from a broken heart?
