Dave Berry - Mama
Tekst en muziek: Mark Charron
(1966)






Who’s the one who tight your shoe when you were young
And knew just when to come and see what you had done
Mama, oh mama
And who’s the one who plashed your eye and told you not to cry
’Cause he was too big for you to try
Mama, my mama



And who’s the one you didn’t need to please
To give her time to the little me
It was mama, oh mama
And who’s the one who gave her shoulder
When you told her
Your first love was over
She’d met someone older
Mama, mama



It was mama, oh mama
Mama, oh mama



Who’s the one who tought you obligation and dedication
Result in graduation
Mama, oh mama
And who’s the one who’ve shown the friends you’ve known
A home, away from home
And they were tired and all alone
Mama, mama



Who’s the one who held the tears inside
When you introduced your future bride
And who’s the one who didn’t cry
As you walked down the aisle to tears, she showed a smile
Mama, mama



My mama, it was mama
Oh mama, it was mama
