Papa he left home today
Said he ain't comin' back again
Said he ain't gonna be nobody's second best just couse mama's got a special kind of friend

Papa he left home today
Said he ain't comin' back no more
Said he ain't gonna take no damn back seat and how could mama do him so low

But mama's got a girlfriend now boy
Mama's got a girlfriend
Now mama's got a girlfriend mama's got a true friend
Mama's got a girlfriend now

You see mama don't watch your damn football and your beer drinkin'
Just won't do you're just stayin' out late and you're preachin'
The hate and you never have been true

You see mama she want her
Somebody who will let her be herself so she's leavin' you and your stinky damn ways cause

She's found somebody else

And mama's got a girlfriend
Now boy mama's got a girlfriend
Now mama's got a girlfriend mama's found a true friend
Mama's got a girlfriend now

Papa he left home today
He was wavin' his hands and cryin'
You could tell by the sound and the tone in his voice that
His heart was slowly dyin'

But mama said "Boy if I ever catch you 'round here again
You ain't never gonna have nobody else not a woman or a man"

And mama's got a girlfriend
Now boy mama's got a girlfriend
Now mama's got a girlfriend mama found a true friend
Mama's got a girlfriend
Now mama's got a girlfriend
Now boy mama's got a girlfriend
Now mama's got a girlfriend
Mama's found a true friend
Mama's got a girlfriend now
