​That's What Mama Say

This song is by The Impressions and appears on the album Ridin' High (1966).

It won't be long before I, venture this world all alone
That's what Mama say
All that shines is not gold, people can be mighty cold
That's what Mama say
Mama said there ain't gonna be any roses
Popping up to lead the way
Watch out for the storm to come boy
'Cause the sun don't shine every day

That's what my Mama says (that's what Mama said)
You better take heed to her a ways

Now when you get a woman
Make sure she's mighty nice
That's what Mama say
Be good to your woman
And when day is done
Love her with all your might
That's what Mama say
Mama say there ain't gonna be any roses
Popping up to lead the way
Watch out for the storm to come boy
'Cause the sun don't shine every day

That's what my Mama say (that's what Mama say)
Take heed to her a ways
That's what my Mama say (that's what Mama said)
That's what my Mama say (that's what Mama said)
You better take heed (that's what Mama said)
