RAY BLK – Mama lyrics
[Verse 1]
In the kitchen on the southside
Catching vibes at the table after midnight
Mama sleep, try not to wake her on the inside
Wondering if I'll ever make it Mama told me I'm the greatest
I'm the greatest then
She was right beside me, pushed me till I made it here
Pressure leave a person cracked up like a eighties kid
She was single holding me down
Even though my dad weren't around

[Pre-Chorus]
She would tell me everything was alright (Ooh)
Even when I couldn't see the sunshine (Ooh)
She has been a queen for me in my life
She was still believing when it wasn't easy (Oh oh)

[Chorus]
When you see me smiling when I feel down
Yeah, I get that from my mama
And when you see these hips and thighs that sit nice
Yo, I got that from my mama
And it don't matter what I make or where I go in this world
Got to get back to my mama
'Cause love is what love does
Shoutout to my mama

[Verse 2]
It was too hard when you're working two jobs
'Cause you're raising three kids and you're praying to God
'Cause you got to pay bills so we live like we live
You were on the night shift, we were locked in the crib
You used to say we can't tell nobody
'Cause some people might come, try to take us away
So each and every day I can say that I appreciate
All the ways that you loved me

[Pre-Chorus]
She would tell me everything was alright (Ooh)
Even when I couldn't see the sunshine (Ooh)
She has been a queen for me in my life
She was still believing when it wasn't easy (Oh oh)

[Chorus]
When you see me smiling when I feel down
Yeah, I get that from my mama (My mama)
And when you see these hips and thighs that sit nice (Yeah, yeah)
Yo, I got that from my mama (from my mama)
And it don't matter what I make or where I go in this world
Got to get back to my mama
'Cause love is what love does
Shoutout to my mama

[Bridge]
I'll whoop your ass if you're late
Now, you can't go on no dates
You talkin' back, think you grown 'cause you menstruate
But you ain't that bad, are you?
I hate when we argue
I raised you to honour your mother and father
Yeah, I wanna see you livin' dreams
Remember you're a queen
I wanna see you make it but don't lose your Christianity
I tried to get the best of me
Give you the tools to propel you to your destiny
I love you, Mum

[Chorus]
When you see me smiling when I feel down
Yeah, I get that from my mama (Get that from my mama)
And when you see these hips and thighs that sit nice (Nice)
Yo, I got that from my mama (Got that from my mama)
And it don't matter where I make it, where I'm going
It's where I got to get back to my mama (I got to get to my mama)
'Cause love is what love does
Shoutout to my mama
