Unwed Welfare Mothers Galore
Thereís no need to find a husband because government will protect,
Unmarried pregnant girls in ghetto welfare housing project,
Because making more babies is the best career in town,
At home, politically correct and lots of boy friends around.
Never had to even go to school to learn baby making trade,
They only had to play around, got pregnant to have it made,
Social workers and politicians at their every beck and call,
Monthly government check and an apartment and thatís not all.
Where fathers or husbands are considered excess baggage,
Their presence could drop the welfare check down below average,
No disgrace, social stigma, shame or dishonor in this lifestyle,
Lots of girls getting pregnant because itís so worth while.
And the more fatherless babies she has, the bigger her check,
So birth control or abortion would be just a pain in the neck,
Because no one outside in the real world seems to give a damn,
No referendums and no recall for this lifestyle scam.
