Veronica:
A boy I go to school with calls me up for a date
He said "I'll come and get you 'bout a quarter to eight"
We go off to a movie where he steals a little kiss
And then we park around the corner to explore a little bliss

I think his heart's a-pounding but it isn't my man
It's my mama out the window with a frying pan

Saying, "Hands off, mister, that's my little girl
Keep your cultivating fingers off my precious little pearl"
I never get to keep no company
Because one and one is two but baby
Mama makes three

Now, ladies, listen up

I got a little older with a place of my own
A guy from work who's all of that starts ringing my phone
We book a little hotel at the Jersey Shore
But you know it ain't the ocean that we're goin' there for

We go to check in, but then I hear 'em shout
Because my mama's at the front desk checkin' us out

Saying, "Hands off, mister, mister, don't you come near
I have some big reservations 'bout your reservations here"
He hit the ground, runnin', as he threw her the key
Because one and one is two but baby
Mama makes three

She chaperoned each party, every date, and every day it's
"Hey mama, you was once a girl, now give a girl a chance!"
I wish my wiser pa could help to free his little bird
But he knows that he's a goner if he ever says a word

I moved away and finally meet the man of my dreams
He put the diamond on my finger, how it sparkles and gleams
We have a simple wedding with the shoes and the rice
And then we head off to our honeymoon to really break the ice

I whispered, "Dim the lights" and go to slip on something red
But when I turn around you know who's lying in bed

Saying, "Hands off, mister, that's the light of my life
I ain't giving up my daughter just because she's your wife"
We'll never add a branch to our family tree
Because one and one is two but baby
Mama makes three, oh!
Mama makes three, yeah!
Yeah, mama makes three!
Yeah, oh!

Ensemble:
