on Amazon Music

Call it love and devotion
Call it a mom’s adoration
Foundation
A special bond of creation, hah
For all the single moms out there
Going through frustration
Clean Bandit, Sean-da-Paul, Anne-Marie
Sing, make them hear

She works the nights,...

    Well, it’s the only way to protect his child and herself The song reminds me of the movie Coco. Try to see the movie, it’s obvious too, in a different way.

    The woman is metaphorically "killing herself" by giving up her own body for mens admiration, to feed her child. The rock-a-bye is a "good-bye" to the mothers pride=herself=hence in return for taking care of her child (feeding, clothing, sports, everything for that baby). This is the proper interpretation in Celenas opinion ;) She is saying "bye" to who she was and now has to be.
    her morals pushed aside to do what is necessary with what the uneducated mommy has to do when a shit bag of a sperm donor leaves her and her lil one. And she is rocking that baby (literally) and rocking (metaphorically) with all she can give for the shit bag men, so as to not only survive with her child but rake in the dough.

    This is the story of a mother who got pregnant by a man and he left her... The lady sacrified everything for his baby child and become a pole dancer in a bar.

    Too young, clearly uneducated, and alone. Instead of killing her child she uses her heart, has a soul and keeps her baby. Abortion is popular in culture today. People make impulsive choices within their sex life and don't take responsibility for their actions. This song supports pro-life and so do I. Being a pole dancer.. Dunno about that part. With hard work and long hours I've become employed as a furniture antique and glaze applicator. I manage the entire line. You can do it without showing your bodies to strangers girls, but no matter what just survive. No judgment from me. Survive. -young single mother

    This song talks about how when a man got her pregnant and left her she also would go to the ends of the earths for her baby but she sacrificed herself to feed her child by getting money by dancing in a bar.


    I like this song!

    This song is easy to understand.

    The man who got her pregnant vanished and I believe it was a one-night stand or a casual relationship. He didn't love her and it was only lust. They should have used a protection or it was better that they didn't do it. The woman should have waited for the right man and didn't let herself be tricked by the man. I know many women experienced this situation and this song is a wake-up call that anything that gives pleasure for a moment will not last. Both men and women should be careful because getting a woman pregnant or getting pregnant is not something to be taken lightly.

    I really don't like this kind of song.

    The song suggests that the one in it is rasing the son of someone who had a child with her, and she wants to keep her child safe, warm, and loved. I think that the woman in the song would go to the ends of the Earth to save her baby.

    The video and lyrics described it all.

    The mother sacrificed to dance to feed her child?

    It's honorable she wants to feed her child.

    But! by dancing as a dancer inside a club wearing almost nothing and being watched by different men! This type of club promotes debauchery and the primary reason why divorce or annulment or separation are so common in this generation.

    Better to have a wholesome job than to be the cause of division among couples or families all over the world.

    A song about how far the mother will go for her child. She will do anything for her child. In fact in the music video she is an exotic dancer.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    It's about no matter how much the mother sings rockabye to her baby, the baby will still most likely get taken away.
