Mothers Against Drunk Drivers




           BAFF canīt stop kids from drinking,

           but it helps in case of an accident.

I  went to a party,

And  remembered what you said.
You told me not to  drink, Mum
So I had a sprite instead.  

I  felt proud of myself,

The  way you said I would,
That I didn't drink  and drive,
Though some friends said I  should.

I  made a healthy choice,  

And  your advice to me was right,
The party  finally ended,
And the kids drove out of  sight.

I  got into my car,

Sure  to get home in one piece,
I never knew what  was coming, Mum
Something I expected least.  

Now  I'm lying on the pavement,  

And  I hear the policeman say,
The kid that  caused this wreck was drunk,
Mum, his voice  seems far away.

My  own blood's all around me,  

As  I try hard not to cry.
I can hear the  paramedic say,
This girl is going to die.  

I'm  sure the guy had no idea,  

While  he was flying high,
Because he chose to  drink and drive,
Now I would have to die.  

So  why do people do it, Mum  

Knowing  that it ruins lives?
And now the pain is  cutting me,
Like a hundred stabbing knives.  

Someone should have taught him,
That  it's wrong to drink and drive.
Maybe if his  parents had,
I'd still be alive.  

My  breath is getting shorter, Mum  

I'm  getting really scared.
These are my final  moments,
And I'm so unprepared.  

I  wish that you could hold me Mum,  

As  I lie here and die.
I wish that I could say,  'I love you, Mum!'
So I love you and  good-bye.
