Tom Tom Club – Holy Water lyrics
Oh, oh mother, oh-oh

That boy on the corner, he be' sellin' fluff
You can't tell him nothin, 'cause his life is tough
Gotta make a livin, ' he be' out all night
But the old folks say Betty raised that boy up right
Mama said, "Boy, you need some holy water"
My mama said, "Sprinkle that boy with holy water"
Mama said, "Come on, come on, drink some holy water"
My mama said, "Child, take the lord with you, take the lord with you, oh"
Babies makin' babies, doin' deals in the street
Boy's got a deadline with a windin' sheet
His baby mother outta school, outta dreams
Caught up in soaps while little Malcolm screams
Mama said, "Boy, you need some holy water"
My mama said, "Sprinkle that boy with holy water"
Mama said, "Come on, come on, drink some holy water"
My mama said, "Take the lord with you, take the lord with you"
Oh, oh mother, oh, oh, oh mother, oh, oh mother, oh, oh, oh mother
Sprinkle that boy with holy water, child
Everyone knows you can't fight fire with fire, no
Ashes to ashes, from cradle to grave
Drink holy water, the boy can surely be saved, oh, no
Mama said, "Boy, you need some holy water"
My mama said, "Sprinkle that boy with holy water"
Mama said, "Come on, child, drink some holy water"
My mama said, "Take the lord with you, take the lord with you"
Oh, yeah, oh mama (Mama said), oh-oh holy, holy water (Mama said), oh (Mama said), oh-oh, take the lord with you (Mama said) (Mama said), (Mama said), oh-oh, holy water (Mama said), take the lord with you (Mama said), take the lord with you, boy, you need some holy water (Mama said), take the lord with you (Mama said), water
