This song is by Cornelis Vreeswijk and appears on the album Foto's En Een Souvenir: Vreeswijk Zingt Croce (1976).

Mama's got what papa's needs
And you know what she got, man?
Mama's got it nice and clean
Like tea for papa's pot, man,
So I tell papa good ol' friend
From deep down in mah soul
Hey buddy! don't you blow your cool
And let the time roll!
Papa shakes his tambourine
Shining lake a star. man
Good ol'apa digs this scene
Smoking that sigar, man.
So I tell papa good ol' friend
From deep down in mah soul
Hey buddy! don't you blow your cool
And let the time roll!

I'll go and buy ol'papa a beer
And we all drink a lot, man!
Mama's got ol'jelly zou
Like tea for mama's pot, man.
So I tell papa good ol' friend
From deep down in mah soul
Hey buddy! don't you blow your cool
And let the time roll!

Mama needs it - papa needs it
To buy it - or to borrow
Papa, you can have my chart.
I'll get mine tomorrow!
So I tell papa good ol' friend
From deep down in mah soul
Hey buddy! don't you blow your cool
And let the time roll!

So I tell papa good ol' friend
From deep down in mah soul
Hey buddy! don't you blow your cool
And let the time roll!
Hey buddy! don't you blow your cool
And let the time roll!
