  1. Do What Mama Says

From the recording A Heart for the World

Lyrics

My little boy came one rainy day with a tear in his eye.
His mama wouldn’t let him go out and play and he asked me, “Why?”

Do what mama says. Do what mama says.
Listen to me. It’s best; you’ll see. Just do what mama says.

My dear girl was mad at her mom and asked me what to do.
She found a cool symbol online, but mama hates the tattoo.

Do what mama says. Do what mama says.
Listen to me. It’s best; you’ll see. Just do what mama says.

One night I said, “Sweetheart, please – maybe just means no.”
She told me, “I’ll say yes, if you kiss me so.”

Do what mama says. Do what mama says.
Listen to me. It’s best; you’ll see. Just do what mama says.

Wash your hands, use the soap, sing happy birthday twice.
Take care of the ones you love. At least try to be nice.

Do what mama says. Do what mama says.
Listen to me or there’ll be misery. Just do what mama says.

Do what mama says. Do what mama says.
Listen to me. It’s best; you’ll see. Just do what mama says.
