Angelique-O, Angelique-O
Your mama got to take you back
Angelique-O, Angelique-O
Teach you all the things you lack

Angelique-O, Angelique-O
Your mama got to take you back
Angelique-O, Angelique-O
Teach you all the things you lack

He never got time to sweep the dirt
Mama got to take you back
He never got time to wash a shirt
Mama got to take you back

He never got time to cut and peel
Mama got to take you back
If think you can make it on sex appeal
Your mama got to take you back

Mama's got to take you back
Teach you all the things you lack
When she sends you back to me
We'll live together in harmony

Angelique-O, Angelique-O
Your mama got to take you back
Angelique-O, Angelique-O
Teach you all the things you lack

Angelique-O, Angelique-O
Your mama got to take you back
Angelique-O, Angelique-O
Teach you all the things you lack

He never learnt how to make a stew
Your mama got to take you back
Your biscuits, Lord, I can hardly chew
Mama got to take you back

De pants I'm wearing is full of holes
Your mama got to take you back
While you're runnin' around in a big mink stole
Mama got to take you back

Mama's got to take you back
Teach you all the things you lack
When she sends you back to me
We'll live together in harmony

Angelique-O, Angelique-O
Your mama got to take you back
Angelique-O, Angelique-O
Teach you all the things you lack

Angelique-O, Angelique-O
Your mama got to take you back
Angelique-O, Angelique-O
Teach you all the things you lack
