Tom Tom Club – My Mama Told Me lyrics

My mamma told me love is true
Only if it returns to you
My mamma told me love is true
Only if it returns to you

So if you're in trouble by rumors
Well I can tell you I'm angry at lies
I hear it - and it feels like murder
But I'll never get it right if I don't try

My mamma told me love is true
Only if it returns to you
My mamma told me love is true
Only if it returns to you

People think we should all be the same
As if the sky could be only blue
And if you wanna play that stupid game
Then you know that I am not the girl for you

Thinkin' 'bout it, makes me wanna cry
It makes no sense to say "good-bye"
Baby, you're the one I adore
I don't wanna lose you no more. Oh, no!

Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh! So right mamma
Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh! So right mamma

My mamma told me love is true
Only if it returns to you
My mamma told me love is true
Only if it returns to you

We could walk as lovers hand in hand
And if it rains, well - never mind!
You can kiss me right here where we stand
And let them say, that love is truly color-blind

Thinkin' 'bout it, makes me wanna cry
It makes no sense to say "good-bye"
Baby, you're the one I adore
You're the only one my heart beats for. Oh, yeah!

Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh! So right mamma
Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh! So right mamma

My mamma told me love is true
Only if it returns to you
My mamma told me love is true
Only if it returns to you

Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh! So right, mamma!
