You thought you found, found a good girl
One who'll love you
And give you the world
Now you find that you've been misused

Talk to me or do what you choose
I want you to

Tell mama
All about it
Tell mama
What you need
Tell mama
And I'll make everything all right

That girl you had didn't have no sense
She wasn't worth all the time you spent
She had another man throw you outdoors
And now that same man is wearing your clothes

Oh, tell mama
All about it
Tell mama
What you need
Tell mama
And I'll make everything all right

She'd embarrass you anywhere
She let everybody know she didn't care
But give me a chance, I'm begging you
Just want to take care, take care of you

Ooh, tell mama
What you need
Tell mama
What you need

Tell mama
I'll make everything,
I'll make everything,
I'll make everything all right
