Rockabye

This is the new No 1 here in Aus I am actually a bit conflicted by this song as it’s about the hardships of being a single mother as you all know I’m a stepmother to a almost 14 year old teenager who for school terms lives with his “single mother” which was her choice she left my man on the day of my stepsons birth and went back home to live with her parents she claimed that my man abused her so she could get full custody and full child support from my man (which was thrown out of court because it’s was all false accusations) along with full government benefits for being a “single mother” she has worked 2 out of almost 14 years she has lied and scammed her way through every department (there are too many to mention) in the system playing her woe is me, poor me “single parent” card violin to get every cent possible from our very to generous system. Lets look at the lyrics shall we:

 

Call it love and devotion
Call it a mom’s adoration
Foundation
A special bond of creation, ha
For all the single moms out there
Going through frustration
Clean Bandit, Sean-da-Paul, Anne-Marie
Sing, make them hear

She works the nights, by the water
She’s gone astray, so far away
From my father’s daughter
She just wants a life for her baby
All on her own, no one will come
She’s got to save him (Daily struggle)

She tells him, “Ooh, love, no one’s ever gonna hurt you, love
I’m gonna give you all of my love
Nobody matters like you”
(Stay out there, stay out there)

She tells him, “Your life ain’t gon’ be nothing like my life
You’re gonna grow and have a good life
I’m gonna do what I’ve got to do”
(Stay out there, stay out there)

So, Rockabye baby, Rockabye
I’m gonna rock you
Rockabye baby, don’t you cry
Somebody’s got you
Rockabye baby, Rockabye
I’m gonna rock you
Rockabye baby, don’t you cry
Rockabye, no

Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye
(Rockabye, yeah oh oh)
Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye

Single mama you doing out there
Facing the hard life, without no fear (Yeah)
Just so you know that you really care
Cause any obstacle come you’re well prepared (Oh no)
And no mama, you never shed tear
Cause you have to shed things year after year
And you give the youth love beyond compare (Yeah)
You find his school fee and the bus fare (Yeah)
Mmm Marie, the pops’ disappear
In the round back can’t find him nowhere
Steadily you work flow, everything you know
Say you nah stop no time – no time for your jear

Now she got a six-year-old
Trying to keep him warm
Trying to keep out the cold
When he looks in her eyes
He don’t know he is safe

When she says “Ooh, love, no one’s ever gonna hurt you, love
I’m gonna give you all of my love
Nobody matters like you”

So, Rockabye baby, Rockabye
I’m gonna rock you
Rockabye baby, don’t you cry
Somebody’s got you
Rockabye baby, Rockabye
I’m gonna rock you
Rockabye baby, don’t you cry
(Oh-badda-bang-bang-bang, alright then)
Rockabye, no

Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye
(Rockabye, yeah oh oh)
Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye

Rockabye, don’t bother cry
Lift up your head, lift it up to the sky
Rockabye, don’t bother cry
Angels surround you, just dry your eye

Now she got a six-year-old
Trying to keep him warm
Trying to keep out the cold
When he looks in her eyes
He don’t know he is safe when she says

She tells him, “Ooh, love, no one’s ever gonna hurt you, love
I’m gonna give you all of my love
Nobody matters like you”
(Stay out there, stay out there)

She tells him, “Your life ain’t gonna be nothing like my life (stay)
You’re gonna grow and have a good life
I’m gonna do what I’ve got to do”
(Stay out there, stay out there)

So, Rockabye baby, Rockabye
(Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye)
I’m gonna rock you
Rockabye baby, don’t you cry
(Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye)
Somebody’s got you
Rockabye baby, Rockabye
(Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye)
I’m gonna rock you
Rockabye baby, don’t you cry
(Oh-badda-bang-bang-bang, alright then)
Rockabye

Rockabye, don’t bother cry
Lift up your head, lift it up to the sky (Rockabye)
Rockabye, don’t bother cry (Yeah)
Angels surround you, just dry your eye (Yeah)

Rockabye, don’t bother cry (No)
Lift up your head, lift it up to the sky (Oh)
Rockabye, don’t bother cry
Angels surround you, just dry your eye

My response to each section of the lyrics:

More like this is my meal ticket. (first bit )

Like I said she has only worked for 2 years the rest she has sat on her ass receiving
Government payments. (second bit)

If this were true why does she put her girlfriends before her son every time.(third bit)

I wish this were true she hasn’t taught him any life skills and he will be following in her footsteps living on Centerlink (fourth bit)

She has lots to fear because of all her lies and she can’t budget her “money” (payed for by my man and the government ) she screens her calls because she
is in so much debt with everyone she deals with                                                                                   that they are after her and she has to sleep with a light
on at night. She gets approximately $45,000 and
she can’t afford school fee’s or bus fares or even school uniforms and shoes but can afford cigarettes, alcohol, fast food and go gambling on the pokies get your priorities right hey. (Seventh bit)

She has lied to her son  where the money comes from and that his father has paid nothing until recently but even that’s not correct the amount she says now she “only” gets is
$500 from his father when he actually pays $768 per month That’s parental
alienation at it’s best. (the rest)

 

I have said it before and I will say it again there are a lot of good “single mothers” out there ( I know a few of them personally) but there are also some bad ones too. What makes me the most upset and angry about all this is the fact that I can’t have children of my own (If I did I would want everything and more for my child/children) and there are people out there who are blessed to be a mother but they haven’t given everything they could to their child/childen they could have saved up all their money they are given (not worked for) and bought a house they could have put even $5 dollars away every week for emergencies like for the doctors or dentists or anything the child needs (not wants) instead it’s all just wasted and when the child turns 18 they will have to scam off someone else or even their child/children (if they taught him everything and made him go to school maybe he would be able to get a fantastic job like a doctor or lawyer and provide for you themselves) instead he will be struggling just like you because usually history repeats and the curtain closes till the next generation is born and then it will be again the entitled, no work ethic burns through money legacy will continue on and on and on.

I came across this while searching the latest no 1 song above if I could have children this would be something I would indulge then in lol:  https://open.spotify.com/album/5jhCeQyNbAP3ibLJP0kV6M

This is locally stored in my computer I might even use it for myself as I have been having trouble sleeping (it doesn’t help when the neighbours play their music loud and it goes through the walls) god I sound old lol.

My Health Update:

not much to update as I rang the hospital (that’s where my endocrinologist is located)  back last Thursday just to see if they got the referral that was faxed through from my doctor they said we can’t because we get so many you can try and ring mid next week and see if it’s there. Well that’s not going to be good timing as we have to drive (well my man will be doing all the driving again this time as I’m unfit to drive currently due to me being fatigued ) 9.5 hours sometimes 10 to pick up my stepson for the Christmas school holidays (which his mother has “only” helped once with “only” because she had a girlfriend down here and she didn’t do the trip in one day she did it in two days) Not once has she in nearly 14 years said to us here is some money for fuel or food or clothes or anything it would be nice because when she doesn’t have him she is not paying for him at all and if she really cared about her son she would be ringing us up to see how I am and if I’m even able to look after her son as his father has to work to provide for two families as he is the “only” one who is actually working to pay for everyone in two households ( he is also looking after me cooking, cleaning, food shopping and driving me to my doctors appointments etc) not just a text which asks when and what time we are picking him up and then the actual day we arrange to pick him up you play games and change times and locations and stress us out.  I can see that this will drag on and on and I probably won’t get any new answers before my birthday in June from my specialist.
