When you talk to her talk to her
Like it was somebody else
Talk to your mama
Don't get smart
Have a heart to heart
And just like you would
With your daughter
Cause everything you do or say
You got to live with everyday
She's somebody's baby
She's somebody's sister
She's somebody's mama

Now when you go to her
Speak truthfully
Honest as you can be from your heart
You're in a situation
Where losing patience
Take your time and look her in the eyes
When you just can't find the words you want
And it's hard to reach a point
Where you both can understand
Don't just tell the truth
But tell the whole truth
It'll make a better man out of you

When you talk to her talk to her
Like it was somebody else
Talk to your mama
Don't get smart
But I have a heart to heart
And just like you would
Would you daughter us
Cause everything you do or say
You got to live with everyday
She's somebody's baby
She's somebody's sister
She's somebody's mama

It doesn't matter if
She's wearing mini skirt or business suit
Whether she's twenty-five or ninety-nine
Treat her the way your mama taught you to
She could be the queen Sheba, she could be a school teacher
homemaker or lawyer
I think it's good for your karma
Like when you talk to her

When you talk to her talk to her
Like it was somebody else
Talk to your mama
Don't get smart
But I have a heart to heart
And just like you would
Would you daughter
Cause everything you do or say
You got to live with everyday
She's somebody's baby
She's somebody's sister
She's somebody's mama

Now let's keep it real
Nothing in this world will ever exist without the opposite
There has to be a sun and a moon
A man and a woman
That's just the way it is
Humanity dying
And everybody's fighting
How do we restore the peace
Mama Earth is hurting
When everybody's searching for that femime energy
You gotta talk to her

When you talk to her talk to her
Like it was somebody else
Talk to your mama (Watch your mouth, yeah yeah)
Don't get smart
But I have a heart to heart
And just like you would
Would you daughter
Cause everything you do or say
You got to live with everyday
She's somebody's baby
She's somebody's sister
She's somebody's mama

When you talk to her talk to her
Like it was somebody else
Talk to your mama
Just like you fight for your sister
If you knew that someone dissed her
How you gonna care for your daughter
Turn around and talk bad about the mama
Say way you listen to your auntie
Never interupt while she speaks
Make your words sweet like candy
As if you were talking to your granny yeah
If you really loved them (say so)
If you really needed them (say so)
Love the way she thinks (say so)
You love the way she speaks (say so)
When you need some good conversation (say so)
Say so (say so)
If you want her in your life (say so)
You want her to be your wife (say so)
Tell her she's your best friend (say so) (alright)
You'll be there to the end (alright)(say so)
If you're thinking about leaving (say so)
If you wonder where she's going (say so)
If you need to breathe with her (say so)
You just want to be with her (say so)
If you love her hair (say so)
If you wanted her (say so)
Tell me if you really wanted her (say so)
You wont slap her down (say so)
Say so...
If you feel like loving (say so)
If you wanna feel the hugging (say so)
