Lyrics

Mama Knew

It's Sunday morning, I'm trying to sleep in.
And my mama says, girl, you know, you know it's a sin.
God protects you all week long.
It's his angels' care that keeps you from harm.
Can't you spend one hour with him?

I give in, I'm sitting in the back pew.
Making plans for having fun I'll have when the service is through.
Then I remember all the ways
When I felt God's care, a touch of His grace.
And I'm ashamed my grateful moments are few.

chorus:
Mama knew, and daddy did, too.
What was fair, what was wrong, what's the right thing to do.
They made complicated things so plain.
I wish, I wish they were with me again.
When life seemed too much, too soon,
Mama and daddy knew.

He's late again, daddy says this isn't right.
If he really care for you, that boy would be here on time.
You deserve love and respect.
Find someone who will give you their best.
Make him earn being your valentine.

(chorus)
Bridge:
I'm not where I need to be
But I have come this far because they loved me.
They just loved me.

(chorus)
