Mama's Got A Girlfriend

This song is by Ben Harper and appears on the album Welcome to the Cruel World (1994) and on the live album Live From Mars (2001).

"Papa he left home today
said he ain't comin' back again
said he ain't gonna be nobody's second best
just couse mama's got a special kind of friend

Papa he left home today
said he ain't comin' back no more
said he ain't gonna take no damn back seat
and how could mama do him so low

But mama's got a girlfriend now boy
mama's got a girlfriend now
mama's got a girlfriend
mama's got a true friend
mama's got a girlfriend now

You see mama don't watch your damn football
and your beer drinkin' just won't do
you're just stayin' out late and you're preachin' the hate
and you never have been true

You see mama she want her somebody
who will let her be herself
so she's leavin' you
and your stinky damn ways
cause she's found somebody else

And mama's got a girlfriend now boy
mama's got a girlfriend now
mama's got a girlfriend
mama's found a true friend
mama's got a girlfriend now

Papa he left home today
he was wavin' his hands and cryin'
you could tell by the sound and the tone in his voice that his heart was slowly dyin'

But mama said
"Boy if I ever catch you 'round here again
you ain't never gonna have nobody else not a woman or a man"

And mama's got a girlfriend now boy
mama's got a girlfriend now
mama's got a girlfriend
mama found a true friend
mama's got a girlfriend now
mama's got a girlfriend now boy
mama's got a girlfriend now
mama's got a girlfriend
mama's found a true friend
mama's got a girlfriend now
