Janis Ian
Don't go out in the street, little girl
and don't go out into town
You don't know who you'll meet, little girl
There are bad men around
Your mother, she's in love with you
She tells you, you shouldn't go with guys
So go to bed at ten, let your mama tuck you in
and turn on your Mickey Mouse night-light
Then you make it with your mind

Don't go out into town, little girl
Stay safe in the house, little girl
Your mother's stares, and the Enquirer's tales
keep you hiding, denying

Don't go into the park, little girl
You know those men are all the same
Stay inside alone after dark, little girl
Boys want just one thing
Don't talk about sex, you might get hexed
God'll punish you for your dirty mind
Now, there is no escaping, and you'd enjoy a raping
just to find out the facts of life
Mama says - Maintain your pride

Don't go out into town, little girl
Stay safe in the house, little girl
Your mother's stares, and the Enquirer's tales
keep you hiding, denying

Don't go into your mind, little girl
The windows, they're only made of glass
Don't let me catch you trying to pry, little girl
Mirrors of illusion tumble fast
You're too far gone for anyone
I'd like to help, but I can only sigh
You'd best maintain your mama's pride
'cause you lost yours the time
you obeyed when she said "Don't fraternize"
No place to hide

Don't go out into town, little girl
Stay safe in the house, little girl
Your mother's stares, and the Enquirer's tales
keep you hiding, denying
