When I was young, my momma always told me
I still hear her advice
She said, "Don't ever bet against your feelings
Always think twice"

Don't go and throw your love away
To some man just for the night
Promises, don't waste your time
If his intentions don't feel right, oh

Your reputation follows you wherever you go
Don't get a bad reputation
Your reputation can't be bought, it can't be sold
Don't get a bad reputation, don't need a bad reputation

I'm so thankful, momma, I am waiting
To find someone who
Was looking in the same direction
That you pointed to

I'll never turn and walk away
If my heart gives me the sign
When the one comes along, I'll understand
That the wait was worth the while, oh

Your reputation follows you wherever you go
Don't get a bad reputation
Your reputation can't be bought, it can't be sold
Don't get a bad reputation, don't need a bad reputation

Read all about it
Momma said, listen to me, listen to me, listen to me, listen to me
What'd she say?
Listen to me, listen to me, listen to me, listen to me, oh
Listen to me, listen to me, listen to me, listen to me, oh

Your reputation follows you wherever you go
Don't get a bad reputation
Your reputation can't be bought, it can't be sold
Don't get a bad reputation, don't need a bad reputation
Don't get a bad reputation, don't need a bad reputation
