This goes out to all of the mothers here in the world.

Oooh

(We love you.
Te quiero.)

You know we had to do it for our mama mama.
Tenias que hacerlo por mi mama mama
(Oh)
You know I'm going through it for my momma momma.
Sabes que voy hacerlo por mi mama
(Oh)

Twelve hours on her feet
And she worked like a slave
She didn't make a lot of money
But the bills got paid
Every day she dealt with pain
And I've never seen her cry
And no matter how much it hurt
It was her only way to survive

And I'll never forget
(I'mma never, I'mma never forget)
What you've done for me
(What you've done for me)
And I'll do my best
(And I'll do my best)
To make you proud of me
(To make you proud of me)

[Chorus]
She said:
Girl I just want you to have
A better life than me
She said:
Get a good job
So you can raise a family
(That's right)
She said:
I'm not the kind of people
You look up to
But I don't think you understand...
I want to be just like you.

Damn
Yeah
I remember laying in the bed, ma
I remember everything you said
Putting alcolado on my head
Cantando titinorma
En la sala bailando
Ma you knew it,
That's why you always played music
My momma used to say:
My little man's going to do it
She said:
Don't be a liar
Spit that fire
My ma's a rider,
She a cancer survivor.

I can never figure out
How we made it through
She did it by herself
And had no one to come home to
Still she lived her life
And prayed at night
To make it through another day
And even when I saw
The pain in her eyes
She tells me everything's OK

And I'll never forget
(Never)
What you've done for me
And I'll do my best
(I'mma do my best)
To make you proud of me
(To make you proud of me)

[Chorus]
She said:
Girl I just want you to have
A better life than me
She said:
Get a good job
So you can raise a family
She said:
I'm not the kind of people
You look up to
(Praise you mom)
But I don't think you understand...
I want to be just like you.

Oh
Everything you taught to me
(Oh)
I live by faithfully
(Oh)
You would be so proud to see
(The woman I've become)
(Oh)
And I'm going to get back to you
(Oh)
'Cause that's what I want to do
(Oh)
Momma I love you
(Maybe more than enough)
(Oh)

Yeah
Mami me dijo:
(She told me)
Busca el buen camino, mi hijo
(My son)
Dijo:
En tus manos es donde esta tu destino
(The world is in your hands)
Dijo:
Si estas cansado piensa
En lo que sufrimos
Para estar donde estamos
Piensa en lo que vivimos
___ de la tierra
Los pies no dejes que la fama
Success te posees
Tu eres un hijo
De que hables
Entrega siempre tu best
En todo lo que haces
Confia en lo que tu crees
Y ___

[Chorus]
And
She said:
Girl I just want you to have
A better life than me
She said:
Get a good job
So you can raise a family
She said:
I'm not the kind of people
You look up to
But I don't think you understand...
I want to be just like you.

Eh
I want to be just like you
