Sunday morning, I heard Mama pray, from a room I heard her say
"Good Lord, help my son find his way
Lord, he's just a country boy, he thinks the world is great big toy
There ain't nothin' he can't do if he wants to"

He got himself a part time job, saved his money and bought him a guitar
Played from sun up to sundown, hey, hey, hey
He don't wanna go to schoool no more, don't do his household chores
But I'm a hit, the neighbor's biggest sound, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

He's got some big ideas
He's talkin' 'bout leavin' here
Going to a place called New York City
And here's what he told me

"Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no, let me go
Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no, let me go"

Mama said, "My son, my son you're only sixteen
I know being a star is your dream
But I think it's time you stop all this foolin'
And get to your school"

Living in a state of frustration, stop preachin' that education
'Cause this job is gonna make me a king
Above everything else, listen
Donned from head to toe, first class everywhere we go
Just give me a chance to do my thing

Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no, let me go
Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no, let me go
I can see it now

Champagne and caviar, black limousine, chauffeured car
Trips all around the world and I'll have my choice of any girl
People lined up as far as you can see standing in line just to see me
Money stacking up to the sky there ain't nothin' that we can't buy

Have a little faith in me
Mama, I'm sure that you will see
That your son and his guitar are gonna go far

Mama, I gotta brand new thing, don't say no, let me go
Mama, I gotta brand new thing, don't say no, let me go
Mama, I gotta brand new thing, don't say no, let me go
Mama, mama, mama, mama

I gotta brand new thing
I gotta brand new thing
I gotta brand new thing

Tell me, do you like my thing?
Tell me, do you like my thing?
Tell me, do you like my thing?

Let me see you move
Let me see you groove
Let me see you move
Let me see you groove

We got a brand new thing
We got a brand new thing
We got a brand new thing
We got a brand new thing

Mama, I gotta brand new thing, don't say no, let me go
Mama, I gotta brand new thing, don't say no, let me go
Mama, I gotta brand new thing, don't say no, let me go

Mama, I gotta brand new thing, don't say no, let me go
Mama, I gotta brand new thing, don't say no, let me go
Mama, I gotta brand new thing, don't say no, let me go
Mama
