"Awww,
I don't wanna,
I don't wanna be here"
"shh it's alright darling
What do you want?"
"I wanna I wanna I wanna I wanna I wanna pony pony"

It's just my mama and me
And though I know it may be
Hard to be mama and me
But we've got time time time
With my mom by my side
I know i'll always survive
We'll never give up the fight
Cause we got time time time time

I didn't wanna go
So far from home
But it was time you know
Children got to roam
But now I need her so
She's my maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahhhhhhhhhhm

There's alotta things that i'm proud of in this world
I got a pinch of shirley chisholm and a sprinkle of "that girl"
Are you looking at me?
Cause there's no one else here
I'm a legally blonde three... cursed with big hair
And now the greatest way to world? It's time to give credit
To the person who's the limit, although she's never said it
To whom I am indebted, who cuts the final edit
She's my mamamamamama and I want you all to get it

It's just my mama and me
And though I know it may be
Hard to be mama and me
But we've got time time time
With my mom by my side
I know i'll always do right
We'll never give up the fight
Cause we got time time time time

So hold on, hold tight
This meeting's adjourned
For people with degrees,
You got a lot to learn
We've been earnin' jackshit man
Feelin the burn
Lost the girdle, jump the hurdle, so now it's our turn
See i've been livin with my mama since I was an embryo
Never had nintendo saw alotta brecht though
I only knew new since jewel went techno
You think i'm gonna listen and write you a check
No!
I was so small, barely big enough to crawl
When mother would call me as I stalled by the wall
In the daycare I was placed in while she's making low wages
My crayons tracing those crazy sad faces
And I tasted my soul all those coals in the mountains
Moving awfully slow??
Scolding me when i'm lonely
And waiting for mama to unfold me
And hold me
She told me "we're gonna be ok"

It's just my mama and me
And though I know it may be
Hard to be mama and me
But we've got time time time
With my mom by my side
I know i'll always do right
We'll never give up the fight
Cause we got time time time time

I think back to those days that make's me so mad
?? Chasm she had to collapse
I'm an educated woman, but I wanna attack
Wanna slap my granny, wanna whack my dad
Where were you when we were at the welfare office?
The atmosphere's toxic, the clerks are obnoxious, the kids are selling chocolate chomping their losses
Can't even charge the clothes?
Or play with oshbagosh boxes
Those bruises, short fuses, with bad guys with black eyes
The losin, the oozin, the blood down your right thigh
The wantin to die with your nose broken, heart chokin
Hitchin a ride with a chain smokin, plain spoken jim
Who's gonna drive you as far as he can
But he ain't got the rent and you ain't got a man
"what now mama? Tell me you got a plan."
"we're gonna make little darling with a government grant."

It's just my mama and me
And though I know it may be
Hard to be mama and me
But we've got time time time
With my mom by my side
I know i'll always survive
We'll never give up the fight
Cause we got time time time time

I didn't wanna go
So far from home
But it was time you know
Mom needs time alone
But now I need her so
She's my maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahhhhhhhhhh

"I hate you mother! Leave me aloooooooooooone!!"
"I love you mommy I love you mommy I love you mommy I love you mommy"
[Crying]
"I want a suicide pill. Get me a suicide pill mommy!"
"I wanna die with you I wanna die with you"
"You bitch! Get me a suicide pill!"
