‘She Wanders As She Ponders’
  
All the while—
she wanders as she ponders.
Why does love have to hurt so much?
The liquor—oh, how it packs a punch.
And why does Momma cry and such?
Poppa—he tells lies—by the bunch.

All the while—
she wanders as she ponders.
If only—it'd come to pass for a single day
Happiness visited—oh, how she’d pray
Momma might smile in abundant array.
The cops, they wouldn’t take Poppa away.

All the while—
she wanders as she ponders.
With each ratchet of the stick upon the fence
If wishes came true—life would be less intense.
Someday, somehow—it would all make sense.
No more drama—certainly gone—all pretense.

All the while—
she wanders as she ponders.
One more walk ‘round the block might tell.
At least she’d like to think all would be well.
She would ask—perhaps, Poppa wouldn’t yell.
And Momma’s heart—only happiness dare dwell.

All the while—
she wanders as she ponders.
