I went to a party, Mom,                                   Tell Daddy to be brave.
I remembered what you said.                               And when I go to heaven, Mom,
You told me not to drink, Mom,                            Put "Daddy's Girl" on my grave.
So I drank soda instead.
                                                          Someone should have told him, Mom,
I really felt proud inside, Mom,                          Not to drink and drive.
The way you said I would.                                 If only they had told him, Mom,
I didn't drink and drive, Mom,                            I would still be alive.
Even though the others said I should.

I know I did the right thing, Mom,                        I'm becoming very scared.
I know you are always right.                              Please don't cry for me, Mom.
Now the party is finally ending, Mom,                     When I needed you,
As everyone is driving out of sight.                      you were always there.
As I got into my car, Mom,                                I have one last question, Mom.
I knew I'd get home in one piece.                         Before I say good bye.
Because of the way you raised me,                         I didn't drink and drive,
So responsible and sweet.                                 So why am I the one to die?
I started to drive away, Mom,                             Parents, talk to your children help to ensure your child
