Story Behind the Song

This is the story of teenage country girls who disobey their mama, sneak out and get in trouble one night in Memphis.

Lyrics

"It Ain't Safe After Dark," Mama Said
I. We snuck out to Beale Street last Saturday night.
Us country girls went to party and see th' Memphis lights.
We chowed down on some barbeque and walked that strip a blues.
Do ya know, Baby Sister, what happened to my shoes?
II. We all jumped into some cute boy's pick-up truck.
Some piled in th' back and some crowded up front.
We're kissin' all th' boys and we're sippin' on their beers.
I'm laughin' 'bout Mama's warnin', then I realized her fears.
(Chorus)
"It ain't safe after dark," Mama said.
"Livin' large ain't such a lark," that's what she said.
"It don't matter if there's a full moon, take it from yo' mama, you'll wind up actin' a fool."
"It ain't safe after dark," Mama said.
III. Tammy hung out th' window, throwin' up out on th' road.
Debbie got felt up and slapped that horny toad.
Blue lights saved us country girls from a real dead end.
Our stupid crime was minor to what else it could a been.
IV. Mama came down to th' jail and bailed us all out.
Th' police were delighted with her mother-blankin' mouth!
Th' whole jail froze as she slammed us with her drama.
Then, she hugged us all and said, "Don't disobey yo' mama!" No, no, no!"
(Chorus)
"It ain't safe after dark," Mama said.
"Livin' large ain't such a lark," that's what she said.
"It don't matter if there's a full moon, take it from yo' mama, you'll wind up actin' a fool."
"It ain't safe after dark," Mama said.
(Tag)
"It ain't safe after dark," Mama said.
"It ain't safe after dark," Mama said.
"It ain't safe after dark, "Mama said.
No, no, no!
