​You Nearly Lose Your Mind

This song is by Leon Redbone and appears on the album No Regrets (1988).

Now if you love your Momma
And you treat her right
But she keeps on fussin' at you
Every day and night

Then she's gonna trifle on ya
They'll do it every time
And when your baby starts steppin', Lord
You nearly lose your mind

What do you think Willie?

Now if your Momma's mean
Take a tip from me
Lock her up at home Lord
But hang on to that key

Because she's gonna trifle on ya
They'll do it every time
And when your baby starts steppin', Lord
You nearly lose your mind

Rave on brother, rave on

But if you Momma's good
I'll tell yah what to do
Give her lots of lovin' Lord
But watch her closely too

Because she's gonna trifle on ya
They'll do it every time
And when your baby starts steppin', Lord
You nearly lose your mind

Ah pick them blues out Jimmie

Now you come home to your Momma
Find your clothes ain't clean
You can bet you're slippin'
If you get just what I mean

Because she's been triflin' on ya
They'll do it every time
And when your baby starts steppin', Lord
You nearly lose your mind

Now Waylon, son it's all yours

Now you may have a Momma
Who says that she is true
But wait till you get down and out
And really need her to

Then she's gonna trifle on ya
They'll do it every time
And when your baby starts steppin', Lord
You nearly lose your mind

Tell the truth son, tell the truth

Now I've been a lot of places
There's not much I ain't done
But when it comes to women, Lord
I just don't trust a one

Because they triflin' on ya
They'll do it every time
And when your baby starts steppin', Lord
You nearly lose your mind

It nearly drives you crazy
