It was in the high school yearbook dated may of '55
We were voted the couple most likely to survive
Even teachers never doubted we were more than just friends
But your mama had some second thoughts back then

When you went off to nursing school I kept my job in town
To show your folks that I was old enough to settle down
When you came home for holidays we were happy without sin
But your mama had some second thoughts again

Does your mama know I'm rich and happy well almost that is
Has she ever said that maybe she was wrong
All she ever really wanted was to have the best in you
And that's all I ever really wanted too.

Thanks to her she made me want to prove I could succeed
But thanks to her I'll never have the one thing that I need
And If she reads the papers and remembers who I am
She's probably having seconds again

Does your mama know I'm rich and happy well almost that is
Has she ever said that maybe she was wrong
All she ever really wanted was to have the best in you
And that's all I ever really wanted too.
That's all I ever really wanted too.
