​Mama Used To Say

This song is by Hepcat and appears on the album Right on Time (1998).

Girl, now don't you know it's wrong
To depend on someone else to do those things that you won't do
For yourself

Lessons I've learned have changed the man I was,
To step light but with caution because the road is raw.

Mama used to say:
"Boy don't run away from your problems,
And if you face them you will see,
You'll always find a way to solve them.
I will always be there for you,
I will be by your side.
Only one thing I ask of you:
From your fears do not hide."

Girl, I waited for too long,
I've given all I can,
Can you understand this man I will share with you

Lessons I've learned have changed the man I was,
To step light but with caution because the road is raw.

Mama used to say:
"Boy don't run away from your problems,
And if you face them you will see,
You'll always find a way to solve them.
I will always be there for you,
I will be by your side (believe me).
Only one thing I ask of you:
From your fears do not hide."
