Mommas, Do Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Tradesmen
(Mommas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys)
Thanks to Willie Nelson & Waylon Jennings
College ain’t easy to pay for; real jobs hard to find
for those in liberal arts just to feed their mind.
Deep college debt with minimum wage just block them
from finding their way.
Life with three roommates, credit card debt, ramen soup,
working that long endless day.
Momma’s don’t let your babies grow up without options.
Don’t let ’em ignore those industrial fits,
Technical careers with good benefits.
Mommas don’t let your babies grow up without futures
‘Cause they’ll never return to live at your home, but
Come ‘cause you’re someone they love.
Workforce trade jobs open futures anywhere in the
So many careers for workers with futures in sight.
Employers now compete for them
and those with offers ponder which are best for ’em.
They ain’t wrong deciding that trade jobs are best fit,
dilemma is which for them is right.
