Everything I ever learnt, that gets me through the worst
I learnt, at my mama's knee
Now anytime I'm turned around, I turn to mama first
And you'd be wise to memorize what mama says to me

Now mama aint been wrong yet, and I'm living proof
Take that for what it's worth! Yeah hahaha

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
The woman knows where it's at

Chorus
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!

You can't back down ren!
Now ren you've not yet had the pleasure of meetin' my mama
But these boys over here have now
Come on and help me out here fellas

Mama says... Don't drink hot coffee while lying down in bed
Don't even give it a thought! It's a mess!
Mama says... Never eat anything that's bigger than your head
Is she a wiz or what? Oh yes!

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!
Whoa once you drive up a mountain you can't back down!

Now mama makes a lot of sense if you know how to listen
She is clear, and concise (she's concise! )
Daddy says well I love her son but she's got marbles missing
But I say hey! it's free advice! And what do you expect at that price?

Mama says... What you believe in is all you really own
And I believe that she's right
Mama says... If you've got doubts well then boy you're not alone
Just means your ready to fight!

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!

You can turn up the heat!
You can turn up the road!
You can carry a beat!
You can carry a load!
You can throw a fit!
You can throw a punch!
You can bring up a child!
You can bring up your lunch...
(Aww man! Did your mama say that?)

1, 2, 3!

And mama says it doesn't matter
If you drive a hard bargain or drive around town!
Once you drive up a mountain you can't back down!
Once you drive up a mountain you can't back down!
(Music ends)

(Music starts up again)
I thought of one more thing

Now mama says...
Don't buy a chandelier unless you've got a ceiling
Now I don't know what that's about...
Mama says... Don't chew on tinfoil unless you like that feeling...
Somehow she figured that out!

And mama says it doesn't matter if you're a king or you're a clown
Once you drive up a mountain
Remember boy everyone's counting on you!
Once you drive up a mountain you can't back down.!

Now that's my mama!
