Mama Said lyrics

Mama said:
"See it through, don't let the night put the bite on you.
Take your time, make your plan."
Mama said:
"Son, be your own best man"
Mama said:
"Play it straight; do what you like only do it up right.
Take your time, don't run wild."
Mama said:
"Son you're my one man child"

Mama didn't have that know-it-all way
She lived by the book and she prayed every day
Never was a time when a rhythm or rhyme
Or the words of a song ever slipped her mind

Mama said:
"Go out there, play at the game and you better play fair
Make sure your song gets sung"
Mama said:
"Honey be your own big gun"

Mama didn't care when I never came home
She learned how to cope with the end of a phone
Dad went away to his place in the sky
Mama said:
"Son he was a real good guy"

Mama said:
"See it through, don't let the night put the bite on you
Take your time, don't run wild"
Mama said:
"Son you're my one man child"

Mama didn't have that know-it-all way
She lived by the book and she prayed everyday
Never was a time when a rhythm or rhyme
Or the words of a song ever slipped her mind

Mama said:
"See it through, don't let the night put the bite on you
Take your time, make your plan"
Mama said:
"Son be your own best man"
Mama said:
"Go out there, play at the game and you better play fair
Take your time, don't run wild"
Mama said:
"Son you're my one man child
Take your time, don't run wild"
Mama said:
"Son you're my one man child"
