My Mama Told Me

This song is by Barbara Lewis and appears on the album Hello Stranger (1963).

(My-mama, mama, mama, ma-ma)
Oh-o-oh yeah
(My-mama, mama, mama, ma-ma)
My mama to-o-o-ld me-ee-ee
(My-mama, mama, mama, ma-ma)
Ooh ye-e-e-ah
(My-mama, mama, mama, ma-ma)

Yeah
(Wha-ooh-ooh)
My mama told me there'd be lots of guys
(Wha-ooh-ooh)
Who look at me and start to makin' eyes
(Wha-ooh-ooh)
And then they squeeze and wanna hold you tight
And say they love you both-a day and night

And so ya
(Better be careful hon)
Ooh yeah
(Better be careful hon)
Yes, that's what she told me
(Better be careful hon)
Or you're gonna miss out on a lot of fun

(Wha-ooh-ooh)
And then I met a guy whose name was Joe
(Wha-ooh-ooh)
He told me, "Baby I've got lot's of dough"
(Wha-ooh-ooh)
So if you just come along with me
We'll go places, just you wait and see

I should have listened
(To what my mama told me)
Yes, I should have listened
(To what my mama told me)
To what a-mama told me ye-ah
(To what my mama told me)
A-but I didn't be-lieve a-what she said

(My-mama, mama, mama, ma-ma)
Oh-ooh-ho-ooh yeah
(My-mama, mama, mama, ma-ma)
Yes, that's what she told me
(My-mama, mama, mama, ma-ma)
A-but I didn't be-lieve a-what she said

(Wha-ooh-ooh)
Well that all happened such a long time ago
(Wha-ooh-ooh)
I've learned my lesson and a-now I know
(Wha-ooh-ooh)
I should have listened to what my mama said
But I thought I knew everything instead

He ran around
(I should have listened to what my mama told me)
Yes, with every girl in town
(I should have listened to what my mama told me)
Yes, he put me dow-own
(I should have listened to what my mama told me)
Played me for a clown
(I should have listened to what my mama told me)
Oh-ooh Yeah-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eeeh
(I should have listened to what my mama told me)
(I should have listened to what my mama told me)
Yeah-eh now now Yeah-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eeeh
(Fade)
(I should have listened to what my mama told me)
(I should have listened to what my mama told me)
(I should have listened to what my mama told me)
Oh-o mommy mommy Yeah-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eeeh
