They came this mornin' with a dog on a chain
They came and took my little brother away
His generation never even got a name

Yeah, my momma was a rocker, way back in '53
Buys them old records that they sell on TV
And I know Chuck Berry wasn't singin' that to me

Sing Mama
That's all right
It's your world

Hey, this is my life
She's my girl
My life, your world

I watch that fortune wheel but never get to spin it
You made me promises, I don't think you meant it
If there's some sunshine, baby
I'm gonna get out in it, oh yeah

Mama
That's all right
It's your world

Hey, this is my life
She's my girl
My life, your world

I tried to leave but the traffic had been stopped
The beach was burnin' and someone was throwin' rocks
They said an aeroplane had fallen on my block, oh yeah

Mama
That's all right
It's your world
Hey, this is my life
She's my girl, yeah

My life, your world
My life, your world
My life, your world
My life, your world
