All you've ever been
Is a call every now and then
From some old pay phone
After you'd hang up
Lord, she'd take it rough
And want to be alone
I know you from the picture
Of you and her together
Taken at a fair in '68
You've gotta lot of nerve to think
You can walk right in and take her place

To me you're just the man who made my mama cry
Someone who broke a lot of promises in his time
All I know about you is how to live without you
And I can see I have your eyes
But all you've ever been
Is the man who made my mama cry

When she took off my training wheels
Held a job and cooked the meals
Where were you?
Don't even start
She did her part
And yours too
Now you're back to play the part
That was missin' in my heart
When I was growin' up
Well, you're a little late
I don't have the time to waste on catchin' up

To me you're just the man who made my mama cry
Someone who broke a lot of promises in his time
All I know about you is how to live without you
And I can see I have your eyes
But all you've ever been
Is the man who made my mama cry

All I know about you is how to live without you
And I can see I have your eyes
But all you've ever been
Is the man who made my mama cry
