Mama Mia

Drew James © 2006


When I was only six years old

My brother was a three-a

We were looking through my papa's drawer

To see what we could see-a

Beneath the socks in a jewelry box

Was a big ten cent cigar

We lit it up, had a few puffs

And my mother walked in the door and yelled


Mama, mama, mama, mama

Mama, mama mia (X4)


When I was 12 years old

I had a friend across the street-a

When his parents weren't home

We stole his papa's vino

I drank too much and I upchucked

Right in front of the house

My mama came out and began to shout

“My poor little boy is soused” she yelled


Mama, mama, mama, mama

Mama, mama mia (X4)


Now I'm grown away from home

My other stayed behind

But we go to lunch once a month

And have a glass of wine

When the waiter says, “Hey Lady,

What is it I can bring ya?”

I asy, “Hey matey, that's no lady

That's my mama mia” I say


That's my mama, mama, mama, mama

Mama, mama mia (X5)
