Oops, sorry I missed a day of MM, guys, but….here’s a song you have got to love. If you’re a Sugarland fan, you’ll know that Day 2’s song was one of their first, and the one that led them to their successful career today. What was all the hype about over Sugarland’s sweet music? Listen to this awesome summer song, and enjoy the wonderful message it sends!

Baby Girl~Sugarland

They say in this town, stars stay up all night,
Don’t know, can’t see ‘em for the glow of the neon lights
And it’s a long way from here to the place where the home fires burn.
Well it’s two thousand miles and one left turn.

[Chorus]
Dear Mom and Dad,
Please send money, I’m so broke that it ain’t funny.
I don’t need much, just enough to get me through.
Please don’t worry ’cause I’m all right,
I’m playin’ here at the bar tonight.
This time, I’m gonna make our dreams come true.
Well, I love you more than anything in the world…
Love,
Your baby girl

Black top, blue sky, big town full of little white lies.
Well, everybody’s your friend: you can never be sure.
They’ll promise fancy cars and diamond rings, all sorts of shiny things,
But, girl, you’ll remember what your knees are for.

[Chorus]

I know that I’m on my way.
I can tell every time I play.
And I know it’s worth all the dues I pay,
When I can write to you and say

Dear Mom and Dad,
I’ll send money. I’m so rich that it ain’t funny.
It oughtta be more than enough to get you through.
Please don’t worry ’cause I’m all right,
I’m stayin’ here at the Ritz tonight
Whaddya know, we made our dreams come true.
And there are fancy cars and diamond rings,
But you know that they don’t mean a thing.
They all add up to nothin’ compared to you.
Well, remember me in ribbons an’ curls.
I still love you more than anything in the world…
Love,
Your baby girl.

Ah yeah. Your baby girl.

(Dear Mom and Dad,
Please send money, I’m so broke that it ain’t funny. Don’t need much, just enough to get me through.)
Your baby girl.
(Please don’t worry ’cause I’m all right,
Playin’ here at the bar tonight.
Ooh, ooh, ooh.)

Dreams come true.
