Verse 1
Well, I always did just what I was told
I didn't ruffle no feathers, didn't break the mold
I was daddy's angel and a mama's girl
Then suddenly here comes the world
All grown up and had to face the world

Mama said "Be a good girl" but being bad is bad is so much fun
Mama said "Be right and I'm wrong"
Mama said
Mama said "Girls be quiet," but talking shit feels so right
Mama said "Be right and I'm wrong"
Mama said
Oh what what would my mama say
My mama said

Verse 2
I have no problem with authority
But what your saying your mama told me
You mean, I can break the rules and still at night
What's up is down what's black is white
Oh what what would my mama say


You gotta grown up and face the truth
Cause ya mama ain't here to tell you what to do, do ,do
You gotta live this life like everyone else
You gotta face this world all by yourself-
My mama said
