Candi Staton – Mama lyrics
Thought you'd like to know
All those nights you paced the floor
Praying that I would make it home alright,
Believing in god that he would someday save my soul
Well he did, just thought you'd like too know.

Then I thought you'd like to know
All those prayers you prayed for me,
Never a-one fell to the ground, I know
Sometimes it look like I was a million miles from grace
But he answered your prayers, just thought you'd like too know.

[Chorus]
Oh momma I want you to know I love you,
Please forgive my for all the times I broke your heart
Every tear you cried for me, drew me closer too being free,
And I want too thank you, just thought you'd like too know.

Then I thought you'd like too know
That I wish I could live my life again,
If I could, I would surely make amends,
And if I could help my brother,
A new life to discover, oh I would,
Just thought you'd like too know.

[Chorus]
