I Swear Drunk I'm Not Mom ~ Banele Kubheka

We were at the mall
When we got a call
It was Bae's birthday
Her heyday
So she sent us a Mayday
She was having a celebration
She had all our attention and concentration
Luckily it was Friday
Previous day was pay day
The perfect set up so they say
All I needed was composure
Prevent all this exposure
To this party we brought life
Refreshments and hype
Getting down like crazy
Nobody could phase me
We let bygones be bygones
Our differences were gone
Like stars we shone
Like I said before
This all happened until four
There is no need to be glum
I swear drunk I'm not mom.
