Harry Belafonte – Mama, Look At Bubu lyrics

Mama Look At Bubu
Artist: Harry Belafonte (peak Billboard position # 11 in 1957)
Words and Music by Lord Melody
Above title as appeared on the 45a/k/a "Mama, Look-A Boo Boo"

I wonder why nobody don't like me
Or is it the fact that I'm ugly?
I wonder why nobody don't like me
Or is it the fact that I'm ugly?

I leave my whole house and home
My children don't want me no more
Bad talk inside de house dey bring
And when I talk they start to sing

"Mama, look at bubu" they shout
Their mother tell them "shut up your mout' "
"That is your daddy", "oh, no"
"My daddy can't be ugly so"
"Shut your mout' " "Go away"

"Mama, look at bubu" dey (ooh)
"Shut your mout' " "Go away"
"Mama, look at bubu" dey

I couldn't even digest me supper
Due to thee children's behavior
John ("Yes, pa")-"come here a moment"
"Bring de belt, you're much too impudent"
John says it's James who started first
James tells thee story in reverse
I drag my belt from off me waist
You should hear dem screamin' round de place

"Mama, look at bubu" they shout
Their mother tell them "shut up your mout' "
"That is your daddy", "oh, no"
"My daddy can't be ugly so"
"Shut your mout' " "Go away"

"Mama, look at bubu" dey (ooh)
"Shut your mout' " "Go away"
"Mama, look at bubu" dey (oh)

So I began to question de mudda
These children ain't got no behavior
So I began to question de mudda
These children ain't got no behavior

"They're playing with you" my wife declared
"You should be proud of them, my dear"
"These children were taught too bloomin' slack"
That ain't no kind of joke to crack

"Mama, look at bubu" they shout
Their mother tell them "shut up your mout' "
"That is your daddy", "oh, no"
"My daddy can't be ugly so"
"Shut your mout' " "Go away"

"Mama, look at bubu" dey (ooh)
"Shut your mout' " "Go away"

Fade
"Mama, look at bubu" dey (ooh)
"Shut your mout' " "Go away"
