When I was a young boy my mama would say
Son, you aint always gonna get your way
Times will be good, times will be bad
You aint always gonna get a winning hand
Son, she always said, you gotta stand tall
Even when it looks like you'll take a fall
Life is short and sometimes sweet
Get yout of the kitchen if you can't take the heat

Everything she said was true
My mama never was a fool
Gotta live your life by the golden rule

I guess it's true what they say
Really true what they say
I guess what mama said
Was true
Cant have your cake and eat it too, babe

I never doubted any word my
Mutha said
With all the sinnin runnin
Round my head
Everything she said was true
My mama never was a fool
Gotta live your life by the golden rule
I guess it's true what they say
Everything she said was true
Mama never was a fool
Gotta live your life by the golden rule

I guess it's true what they say
Really true what they say
I guess what mama said
Was true
Cant have your cake and eat it too, babe
