A play on 'Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys'


Mamas, don't let your children grow up to be actors
Don't let 'em find agents or memorize a line
Let 'em be teachers and more that's just fine

Mamas, don't let your children grow up to be actors
'Cause soon they'll leave home, and you'll both be alone
Even when there's so much love

Actors are restless, and sometimes they're bold
They don't take advice, though often it's told
Lots of auditions, and lots of big hopes and then
Lost opportunities, but they just don't give up
They wake up and do it again

Mamas, don't let your children grow up to be actors
Don't let 'em find agents or memorize a line
Let 'em be teachers and more that's just fine

Mamas, don't let your children grow up to be actors
'Cause soon they'll leave home, and you'll both be alone
Even when there's so much love

Mamas, don't let your children grow up to be actors
Don't let 'em find agents or memorize a line
Let 'em be teachers and more that's just fine
