The Kingsmen – When Mama Prayed lyrics

When mama prayed
When mama prayed heaven paid attention
The angels spread their wings and stood prepared
Once again ole satan knew he'd been defeated
'Cause god had heard my dear old mama's prayer
In my yester years of childhood
My mama's talk 'bout having' fun
Was sunday morning meeting time
Every time those church bells rung
After our family devotion at night
Why she'd lead me up those stairs
That's where first I heard the echo
Of my dear old mama's prayers
In this modern age of missiles
Tanks, & ships, & guns
When men believe
There's just one way a war is ever won
I've had that secret weapon
That all the bombs cannot compare
For I've won a thousand battles
With my dear old mama's prayers
When mama prayed ~ the angels up in heaven
Would bow their heads and listen to her prayers
They knew god heard and he would answer
'Cause her faith in god was real and she believed
When mama prayed heaven paid attention
The angels spread their wings and stood prepared
Once again ole satan knew he'd been defeated
'Cause god had heard my dear old mama's prayer
When my mama goes to heaven
Leave me just one hand me down
Teach me how to pray
Just like my mama did.
When mama prayed heaven paid attention
The angels spread their wings and stood prepared
Once again ole satan knew he'd been defeated
'Cause god had heard my dear old mama's prayer
When my mama goes to heaven
Leave me just one hand me down
Teach me how to pray
Just like my mama did.
Just teach me how to pray
Just like my mama did...
