Don't yell and vent your anger
Don't fight in front of me
I'm just a baby, I love you both
This isn't fair to me
I know you're tired and restless,
I know you're stressed and worn
It's been so rough, but don't give up
I've only just been born
Dad, your loud voice scares me
And Mom, please don't hit Dad
Don't you see my frightened eyes?
Is it me? Have I been bad?
Don't you see my shaking lips?
And hear my little voice?
No, you're both too self absorbed
To make that simple choice
Dad, choke down your pride, a bit
And Mom, just let it go
I'm stressed myself, and shouldn't be
I'm just a kid, you know?
I feel the tension in the air
Can y'all please get along?
Don't choose your anger over me,
Instead, sing me a song
It scares me when you do this stuff,
'Cause I don't understand
I need you both to let it go,
To guide my little hand
So make the choice for peace and love
Be kind to one another
I know it's there, I know you can,
I know you love each other
I learn with every breath, you know,
I see and hear it all
Don't teach me hate, and disrespect
I need the both of y'all.
