Electric Light Orchestra – Mama lyrics
She came up from the country with a smile for everyone
She left her blue horizon just to find another home
A lonely girl who’d traveled many days
A lonely heart that could not find the way

And she said, "Momma, it’s a hard life now you’re gone"
Momma, it’s so hard to carry on
And I feel I’m a fool who lost it all
You used to make it all so very clear
That life must go on though the end is near
Momma, it’s a sad and lonely life

A misty morning rider, she came wanderin' through the hills
A wanderin' soul appearin' over rainy window sills
A loser in her heart but in her face
A smile for everyone under God’s grace

And she said, "Momma, it’s a hard life now you’re gone"
Momma, it’s so hard to carry on
And I feel I’m a fool who lost it all
You used to make it all so very clear
That life must go on though the end is near
Momma, it’s a sad and lonely life

And she said, "Momma, it’s a hard life now you’re gone"
Momma, it’s so hard to carry on
And I feel I’m a fool who lost it all
You used to make it all so very clear

Midnight maiden madness, what to search for in this place?
Gateway to the city, night sky shadows on her face
A lady lost in nowhere but her stare
Leaves the world, her life to start somewhere

And she said, "Momma, it’s a hard life now you’re gone"
Momma, it’s so hard to carry on
And I feel I’m a fool who lost it all
You used to make it all so very clear
That life must go on though the end is near

Momma, it’s a hard life now you’re gone
Momma, it’s so hard to carry on
And I feel I’m a fool who lost it all
You used to make it all so very clear
That life must go on though the end is near
