    The baby is crying
    The laundry's not done
    Nothing's cooked for dinner
    ...I'm not ready
    Bills are piling up
    It feels like I'm doing this all alone
    The smell of diapers fills the air
    Papers are all over
    The refrigerator is empty
    Who can live on Ramen and Rice
    ...I'm really not ready
    The mistake of one night of the next nine months
    Thirty six hours for the next eighteen years
    Too much commitment for something so short
    Something that's not really worth all this
    ...Neither of us is ready
    But we no longer have a choice
    It's no longer just you and me, it's us...a family
    And we have to be ready
