Thunderhead – What Mama Don't Know lyrics

Little Tommy, he was runnin' home from school
Had a look of love, almost like a fool
Sittin' in his room heart steaming like a train
Waitin' for his dad to help him save the day

He's found a girl, the first one in his life
Needs advise, daddy's always right
Here comes the car, now he's seeing stars
Guess who's gonna get a shock
Could put him behind bars

What mama don't know
Won't hurt her, hurt her
What mama don't know
Won't hurt her

Probably thinkin' what's mama got to do
With the story Tommy told
To daddy's payback news
Papa fooled around, in his younger days
Now Tommy's brand new love, is sister Mary Jane

Tears runnin' down this heartbroken face
Daddy tries, tries to ease the pain
Says "Tommy listen up to what I've got to say
Don't let your mother know, or hell is on it's way"

What mama don't know
Won't hurt her, hurt her
What mama don't know
Won't hurt her

Tears runnin' down this heartbroken face
He's gonna pack, and leave this place

Now mama knows
It hurt her, hurt her
Now mama knows
It hurt her
Now mama knows
It hurt her, hurt her
Now mama knows
