Orbison/melson/rushMama, just had to call, oh mamaYour baby boy just had his heartBroken in two, she said we’re throughBut to send her best to you.Oh mama, I’d like to run to you mamaI’d come home today, leave right awayBut things won’t work that wayGotta stay, and be a manIf I can, oh mama.No mom, I don’t know I called her tonightNo, not at home, yeah, you’re probably rightYes I’ll take care of myself. no I’ll be alrightI’ll go to bed early tonight.Oh mama, tell dad I think of him, mamaHow’s uncle joe, my puppy go-goTell them hello, oh I’d better goBut good gosh, I loved her so.Oh mama, don’t worry so much, darling mamaNow mama don’t cry, just say goodbyeCan’t have us both in tears well mom, you know meYes I’ll always be your baby through all the years.
