Mama Says (Once You Drive Up A Mountain)

This song is by Unknown Artist and appears on the album Footloose - Original Broadway Cast Recording (2009) by various artists.

Willard
Everything I ever learned
That gets me through the worst
I learned at my Mama's knee
Anytime I'm turned around
I turn to Mama first
And you'd be wise
To memorize
What Mama says to me

Now, Mama ain't been wrong yet. And I'm living proof

Jeter
Take that for what it's worth

Willard
Mama says
Don't use a toaster while standing in the shower
Now who can argue with that?

Mama says
Don't hold your breath for longer than an hour (huh)
The woman knows where it's at

And Mama says it doesn't matter
If you're a king or you're a clown
Once you drive up a mountain
You can't back down

Bickle
You can't back down, Ren!

Willard
Now, Ren, you've not yet had the pleasure of meeting my Mama, but these boys over here have. C'mon and help me out here, fellas!

Jeter, Garvin and Bickle
Mama says

Willard
Don't drink hot coffee lying down in bed
Don't even give it a thought

Jeter, Garvin and Bickle
It's a mess
Mama says

Willard
Never eat anything bigger than your head
Is she a whiz or what?

Jeter, Garvin and Bickle
Oh yes!

Willard
And Mama says it doesn't matter
If you're a king or you're a clown
Once you drive up a mountain
You can't back down

All
Once you drive up a mountain
You can't back down

Willard
Now Mama makes a lot of sense
If you know how to listen
She is clear and concise
Daddy says, "I love her, son,
But she's got marbles missin'"
But I say, "Hey! It's free advice
And what d'you expect at that price?"

Jeter, Garvin and Bickle
Mama says

Willard
What you believe in is all you really own
And I believe that she's right

Jeter, Garvin and Bickle
Mama says

Willard
If you've got doubts, well, then, boy, you're not alone
Just means you're ready to fight

All
And Mama says it doesn't matter
If you're a king or you're a clown
Once you drive up a mountain
You can't back down, down, down, down

You can turn up the heat

Bickle
You can turn up the road

Willard
You can carry a beat

Garvin
You can carry a load

Willard
You can throw a bit

Jeter
You can throw a punch

Willard
You can bring up a child

Ren
You can bring up your lunch!

A one, two, three!

All
And Mama says it doesn't matter

Willard
If you drive a hard bargain or drive around town

All
Once you drive up a mountain
You can't back down
Once you drive up a mountain
You can't back down!

Willard
I thought of one more thing

Now, Mama says
Don't buy a chandelier unless you've got a ceiling
I don't know what that's about

Mama says
Don't chew on tin foil unless you like that feeling
Somehow she figured that out

Willard, Garvin, Bickle and Jeter
And Mama says it doesn't matter
If you're a king or you're a clown
Once you drive up a mountain

Willard
Remember, boy
Everyone's countin' on you

All
Once you drive up a mountain
You can't back down!

Willard
That's my Mama!
