YNW Melly – Mama Cry lyrics
[Intro]
I'm sorry, won't right my wrongs

[Chorus]
Mama please don't you cry, I'm sorry
I just caught some time, I'll be home soon
It won't be long, I promise
I will be okay, just wipe those
Tears off of your face, I'm sorry
I won't right my wrongs, I'm guilty
Lord have mercy, please forgive me
Mama please don't you cry, I'm sorry

[Verse 1]
One hundred and forty-five days, I'm counting
Tryna hold on but the time goes slowly
Two hundred and twenty-five ice cold showers
Hurricane hit my cell, I ain't get no power
Tryna walk a narrow straight path is a battle
Kinda hard to walk when you're chained in shackles
My soul bleeds through these four walls
My heart aches after phone calls

[Chorus]
Mama please don't you cry, I'm sorry
I just caught some time, I'll be home soon
It won't be long, I promise
I will be okay, just wipe those
Tears off of your face, I'm sorry
I won't right my wrongs, I'm guilty
Lord have mercy, please forgive me
Mama please don't you cry, I'm sorry

[Verse 2]
Give you my heart, it's filled with pain, give me my freedom
Take off these shackles, they hurt my hands, let me go home
Cold shower, cold bath, cold food, cold slab
Only makes a cold heart
Cold shower, cold slab, cold food, cold bath
Only makes a cold

[Chorus]
Mama please don't you cry, I'm sorry
I just caught some time, I'll be home soon
It won't be long, I promise
I will be okay, just wipe those
Tears off of your face, I'm sorry
I won't right my wrongs, I'm guilty
Lord have mercy, please forgive me
Mama please don't you cry, I'm sorry

[Outro]
Mama please don't you cry, I'm sorry
Barbed wire, best friend became the barbed wire
Chains broken by the barbed wire (barbed wire)
Tears dropping from the barbed wire (barbed wire, falling down)

Cold shower, cold slab, cold food, cold bath (yeah, falling down)
Only makes a cold heart

    Two hundred and twenty-five ice cold showers:
    This is a very creative line by Melly. He uses the amount of ice cold showers as a representation of the amount of time he has served so far. In 2017 Melly served a year in prison for a shooting he was involved in at 16. In the previous line he talks about having 145 days left of his 365 day sentence. This line states he has showered 225 times in jail and the previous line states he has 145 long days until his freedom.
