August Alsina – Mama lyrics

Mama said stay out of trouble
Mama said don't be a fool
Mama said stay in somebody church
Mama said boy stay in school
Mama told me I better to get home
Before the street lights come on
Mama always use to cry when I left her,
Maybe because daddy was gone
I still remember the lessons my mama taught me
And now it's my turn to show you how far they brought me

Mama I made it
Mama I made it
I could have been locked up
I could have been gunned down
But I found my own way
I ain't gonna stop now
Cause mama I made it
And I made you proud

Mama said stay humble
Mama said stay true,
Mama said boy keep your drama away from you
Mama told me keep working, busting on to the future
Mama told me she lost one and she ain't tryna lose two
But I have to find my way
And I have to get my own
Mama it ain't always right
But she never led me wrong
I don't know if I'ma make it big
But mama, I made it out
I know I didn't make it easy
I know you had your doubts

I still remember the lessons my mama taught me
And now it's my turn to show you how far they brought me
How far they brought me
Mama, I made it
Mama I made it
I could have been locked up
I could have been got down
But I found my own way
I ain't gonna stop now
Cause mama I made it
And I hope I'll make you proud
Mama I made it
Mama I made it
I could have been locked up
I could have been got down
But I found my own way
I ain't gonna stop now
Cause mama I made it
And I hope I'll make you proud
