Lyrics

WHEN MAMA AIN'T HAPPY, AIN'T NOBODY HAPPY
words by Michael Shorr

Copyright 2002 All Rights Reserved

you're lookin' at the queen of this run-down house
and the queen lays down the law.

and what i see is a sloppy mess
a lazy old papa sittin' on his ass
a lippy little lady in a too-tight dress
so what y'all're givin' me is too much stress

don't you know that my nerves are raw? And

Chorus:
WHEN MAMA AIN'T HAPPY, AIN'T NOBODY HAPPY
WHEN MAMA AIN'T HAPPY, AIN'T NOBODY HAPPY
WHEN MAMA AIN'T HAPPY, AIN'T NOBODY HAPPY
WHEN MAMA AIN'T HAPPY, mmmm uh-uhn

day after day, i yell and i sweat
but y'all don't seem to care.

all i ever wanted was a little respect
and papa get a job 'stead of more in debt
my kiddies give me quiet not bitch and fret
and when my birthday comes that ya don?t forget.

so i'm feelin' kinda crappy and y'all best beware,'cause:

Chorus

Call: Response:
Why's mama not happy? Ya don't treat her right!
Why's mama not happy? Ya don't give her respect!
Why's mama not happy? She's the Queen!
Why's mama not happy? Don't ya get it yet?

now i'm givin' y'all a plan to appease this queen
and to save your sorry butts

Papa gotta act like Mr. Clean
And Junior gotta cook for my whole regime
and sister gotta settle down and join this team
and get me half a gallon of the best ice cream

and remember that i don't like nuts, no!
