[Dave Hollister:]

Brenda’s got a baby



I hear Brenda’s got a baby

But Brenda’s barely got a brain

A damn shame, the girl can hardly spell her name

That’s not our problem, that’s up to Brenda’s family

Well let me show you how it affects our whole community

Now Brenda really never knew her moms

And her dad was a junkie putting death into his arms

It’s sad, cause I bet Brenda doesn’t even know

Just cause you’re in the ghetto doesn’t mean you can’t grow

But oh, that’s a thought, my own revelation

Do whatever it takes to resist the temptation

Brenda got herself a boyfriend

Her boyfriend was her cousin, now let’s watch the joy end

She tried to hide her pregnancy, from her family

Who really didn’t care to see, or give a damn if she

Went out and had a church of kids

As long as when the check came they got first dibs

Now Brenda’s belly’s getting bigger

But no one seems to notice any change in her figure

She’s twelve years old and she’s having a baby

In love with a molester, who’s sexing her crazy

And yet and she thinks that he’ll be with her forever

And dreams of a world where the two of them are together, whatever

He left her and she had the baby solo

She had it on the bathroom floor and didn’t know so

She didn’t know, what to throw away and what to keep

She wrapped the baby up and threw him in a trash heap

I guess she thought she’d get away, wouldn’t hear the cries

She didn’t realize how much the little baby had her eyes

Now the baby’s in the trash heap bawling

Momma can’t help her, but it hurts to hear her calling

Brenda wants to run away

Momma say, you making me lose pay

There’s social workers here every day

Now Brenda’s gotta make her own way

Can’t go to her family, they won’t let her stay

No money no babysitter, she couldn’t keep a job

She tried to sell crack but end up getting robbed

So now what’s next, there ain’t nothing left to sell

So she sees sex as a way of leaving hell

It’s paying the rent, so she really can’t complain

Prostitute, found slain and Brenda’s her name, she’s got a baby
