I am a pearl clutching Mama

 I wrote this song about five years ago but I only made the video yesterday so  it's hot off the presses... A thank you goes to Miley Cyrus for providing the images I needed,to complete this musical thought..... which had to be being a Mother and all.


 Hey girl with your fancy dress
just who are you trying to impress?
What's it like to get up everyday
just to make sure your make up is all in place?
Gee it must be a big heavy load
 since the whole world cares about your fancy clothes..... hey yeah.
 The front door don't work both ways....
do you know what's inside that place?
Life is more than one big dance
sometimes my dear we second chances...

 Hey girl with your platinum key
what do you want history to say?
You've got everything right on your plate
despite all you could do you choose to play it away
you are not the only one out on the road
surely you can afford someone to drive your Rolls.....hey yah

 The young girls who want to be you
think they are gonna live the way you live
so be loud now, but be proud now
make your choices like we gotta live with them......
even if you don't (no you don't)


You can find the song on   iTunes
