Songwriters Brandy Clark (from Post #9 in this thread), Shane McAnally (from Post #1) and Kacey Musgraves (from Post #5) bring you

"Mama's Broken Heart"
performed by Miranda Lambert (from Post #7)

I cut my bangs with some rusty kitchen scissors
I screamed his name til the neighbors called the cops
I numbed the pain at the expense of my liver
Don't know what I did next, all I know, I couldn't stop

Word got around to the barflies and the Baptists
My mama's phone started ringin' off the hook
I can hear her now sayin' she ain't gonna have it
Don't matter how you feel, it only matters how you look

Go and
Fix your make up
Girl it's
Just a break up
Run an'
Hide your crazy
And start actin' like a lady
'Cause I
Raised you better,
Gotta
Keep it together
Even when you fall apart,
But this ain't my mama's broken heart

I wish I could be just a little less dramatic
Like a Kennedy when Camelot went down in flames
Leave it to me to be holdin' the matches
When the fire trucks show up and there's nobody else to blame

Can't get revenge and keep a spotless reputation
Sometimes revenge is a choice you gotta make
My mama came from a softer generation
Where you get a grip and bite your lip just to save a little face

Go and
Fix your make up
Girl it's
Just a break up
Run an'
Hide your crazy
And start actin' like a lady
'Cause I
Raised you better,
Gotta
Keep it together
Even when you fall apart,
But this ain't my mama's broken heart

Powder your nose
Paint your toes
Line your lips and keep 'em closed
Cross your legs, dot your I's
And never let 'em see you cry

Go and
Fix your make up
Girl it's
Just a break up
Run an'
Hide your crazy
And start actin' like a lady
'Cause I
Raised you better,
Gotta
Keep it together
Even when you fall apart,
But this ain't my mama's broken heart
