MAMMA KNOWS BEST

Been talkin' to your mamma
Been talkin' about you
Been talkin' to your mamma
'Bout what I should do.

I told her you were leavin'
That you said 'goodbye'
I told her you were leavin'
And how the baby cries.

You know that woman loves you
She prays for you each night
You know that woman loves you
She wants to make things right.

CHORUS
Because everybody knows
That mamma knows best
That's right, everybody knows
That mamma knows best.

'I want my baby happy!'
She cried and sighed
'I want my baby happy!'
She cried wild-eyed.

She cried out to Lord Jesus
She took hold my hand
She cried out to Lord Jesus
'Help us to understand!'

I looked up to the heavens
Seeking answers there
I looked up to the heavens
Beseeching the Lord's care.

That's when your mamma smiled
She squeezed my hand
That's when she knew her child
Had married a good man.

REPEAT CHORUS

'Go back to your children'
She commanded me
'Go back to your children
And let your wife be!'

'When's she coming back?'
I wanted to know
'Is she coming back?'
My hope running low.

'She's comin' in God's time'
She gave me a smile
'She's comin' in God's time
If I know my child.'

I knew she had it right
That's when I smiled
I knew she got it right
Mamma knows her own child.

REPEAT CHORUS
