    Little boy don't you cry and don't you dare ever ask why
    your life has to be the way it is
    that's just the way things have to be
    so dry those tears from your big brown eyes

    Little boy don't you say, "why didn't we eat today"
    we didn't have any spare money
    so I couldn't buy anything for us to eat
    can you please just stop whining and do as I say

    Little boy don't you ask me about the men that I see
    make yourself scarce when they come in
    go and play in the park or sit on the porch
    just get lost for a while, can you do that for me

    Young man don't break rules, just to try to be cool
    don't join the neighbourhood street gang
    drink booze, sell drugs, cruise the streets
    get your life together, stop acting like a fool

    Young man don't say, it's all my fault you're this way
    don't blame me for what you've become
    a criminal, wasting away your life
    I tried to raise you right, but you chose to stray

    Young man don't you go, because I never told you so
    how much I loved you, I really did
    I never told you, not ever in words
    and now that you've died, I guess you'll never know
