Everything i ever learnt, that gets me through the worst
i learnt, from my mama's nagging
anytime i'm turned around, i turn to mama first
and you'd be wise to memorize what mama says to me

now mama aint been wrong yet, and i'm living proof
take that for what it's worth! yeah hahaha

mama says...dont use a toaster while standing in the shower
now who can argue with that!
mama says...dont hold your breath for longer than an hour
the woman knows where it's at

chorus
and mama says it doesnt matter...if you're a king or you're a clown
once you drive up a mountian you can't back down!

you can't back down ren!
now ren you've not had the pleasure of meetin' my mama
but these boys over here have now
come on and help me out here fellas

mama says...dont drink hot coffee lying down in bed
dont even give it a thought! it's a mess!
mama says...never eat anything that's bigger than your head
she a wiz or what?

and mama says it doesnt matter...if you're a king or you're a clown
once you drive up a mountain you can't back down!
whoa once you srive up a mountain you can't back down!

now mama makes a lot of sence if you know how to listen
she is clear, and concise (she's concise!)
daddy says well i love her son but she's got marbles missing
but i say hey! its free advice! and what do you expect at that price?

mama says...what you believe in is all you really own
and i believe that she's right
mama says...if you've got doubts well then boy you're not alone
just means your ready to fight!

and mama says it doesnt matter if you're a king or you're a clown
once you drive up a mountain you cant back down!

you can turn up the heat!
you can turn up the road!
you can carry a beat!
you can carry a load!!
you can throw a fit!
you can throw a punch!
you can bring up a child!
you can bring up your lunch...
(aww man! did your mama say that?)

1, 2, 3!

and mama says it doesnt matter
if you drive a hard bargain or drive around town!
once you drive up a mountain you cant back down!
once you drive up a mountain you cant back down!
(music ends)

(music starts up again)
i thought of one more thing

now mama says...
dont buy your chandelier unless you've got a ceiling
now i dont know what thats about...
mama says...dont chew on tinfoil unless you like that feeling...
somehow she figured that out!

and mama says it doesnt matter if you're a king or you're a clown
once you drive up a mountain
remember boy everyone's counting on you!
once you drive up a mountain you cant back down...!

now thats my mama!
