I can't see you, Mama
But I can hardly wait
Ooh, to touch and to feel you, Mama
Oh, I just can't keep away

In the heat and the steam of the city
Oh, its got me running and I just can't brake
So say you'll help me, Mama
'Cause its getting so hard, oh

Now I can't keep you, Mama
But I know you're always there
You listen, you teach me, Mama
And I know inside you care

So get down, down here beside me
Oh, you ain't going nowhere
No I won't hurt you, Mama
But its getting so hard, oh

Ha ha, ha ha, ha ha, ha ha, argh
Ha ha, ha ha, ha ha, ha ha, argh

Can't you see me here, Mama?
Mama, Mama, Mama please
Can't you feel my heart?
Can't you feel my heart?
Can't you feel my heart, oh?

Now listen to me, Mama, Mama, Mama
You're taking away my last chance
Don't take it away
Can't you feel my heart?

Ha ha ha, ha ha ha, argh

It's hot, too hot for me, Mama
But I can hardly wait
Oh my eyes they're burning, Mama
And I can feel my body shake

Don't stop, don't stop me, Mama
Oh make the pain, make it go away, hey hey
No, I won't hurt you, Mama
But its getting so hard, oh

Now I can't see you, Mama
But I know you're always there
You taunt, you tease me, Mama
But I never, never, never can keep away

It's the heat and the steam of the city
Oh, you got me running and I just can't brake
So stay, don't leave me, Mama
'Cause its getting so hard, oh

Don't go, no no, don't go
No no no no, don't go
Ha ha
Don't go
Ha ha, arg
No no no, don't go
Don't go
