Lyrics

He?s A Bad Mama Jamba

Chorus:
You better hide your daughter, hide your wife, hide your mama. Hell, run for your life.
Ricky Price is coming, coming to your town.
He?s a bad mamma jamba, he gets naughty when the sun goes down.

It started out earlier, when Ricky was a kid.
He broke all the girls hearts, and was proud that he did
He beat up the little boys, and called his teacher white trash.
He robbed the cafeteria, and left with all the cash.
The principal said, ?I hope, I see him again.?
Ricky come back with a bottle of gin.

The principal said, ?Come to my office.
Have a chair. I gotta find a way, to get you out of here.?
Ricky put some lumps on the principal?s chin.
Ricky graduated at the age of 10.
All the other kids were out to recess, learning how to play.
Ricky stole a car, and then he drove away.

Chorus:
You better hide your daughter, hide your wife, hide your mama. Hell, run for your life.
Ricky Price is coming, coming to your town.
He?s a bad mamma jamba, he gets naughty when the sun goes down.

Lead:

They called in the sheriff and tried to shut him down.
But Ricky drove a hundred through the middle of town
They called the Army, and the National Guard.
They wouldn?t mess with Ricky, they didn?t want to work that hard.
The Marines took the job, They said, ?They were bad.?
They dropped a bomb on Ricky, but, it only made him mad.

When Ricky was a teen, he was a wanted man.
Wanted by the women, hated by the men.
The townfolk said, ?He?s always up to no good.?
The women all said, ?He?s just misunderstood..
They all agreed, that if he comes your way.
Give him all your money, and say, ?Have a nice day.?

Chorus:
You better hide your daughter, hide your wife, hide your mama. Hell, run for your life.
Ricky Price is coming, coming to your town.
He?s a bad mamma jamba, he gets naughty when the sun goes down.
