Lyrics

when i was a little baby
my mama rocked me in the cradle
but she never told me why
she decided to bring me to this world
and she’d love me
and she’d feed me
and she’d always keep me happy
she never told me why this cruel story
would unfurl

i’m screamin’ why, why, why
lord, i aint prepared to die
this fever taken hold of me
and i’m so afraid of night
i’m screamin’ why, why, why
lord, i aint prepared to die
this fever taken hold of me
and i’m so afraid of night

now, i’m a getting’ older
found a lady to settle down with
we talked about raisin’ up a little
family of our own
but givin’ life is givin’ death
and there aint two ways around it
seems a far less cruel way
to leave them killin’ seeds unsewn

i’m screamin’ why, why, why
lord, i aint prepared to die
this fever taken hold of me
and i’m so afraid of night
i’m screamin’ why, why, why
lord, i aint prepared to die
this fever taken hold of me
and i’m so afraid of night
