Mama, I don't wanna be here
It's alright darling
I don't wanna be here anymore
I don't wanna be
Darling, darling, darling, darling
I don't wanna be here anymore
What do, what do you want?

I, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna
I wanna, I wanna pony, pony

It's just my mama and me
And though I know it may be
Hard to be mama and me
But we've got time, time, time

With my mom by my side
I know I'll always survive
We'll never give up the fight
'Cause we got time, time, time, time

I didn't wanna go so far from home
But it was time you know
Children got to roam
But now I need her so, she's my mom

There's a lot of things that I'm proud of in this world
I got a pinch of Shirley Chisholm and a sprinkle of 'That girl'
Are you looking at me? 'Cause there's no one else here
I'm a legally blond three, cursed with big hair

And now the greatest way to world, it's time to give credit
To the person who's the limit, although she's never said it
To whom I am indebted, who cuts the final edit
It's my mama, mama, mama and I want you all to get it

It's just my mama and me
And though I know it may be
Hard to be mama and me
But we've got time, time, time

With my mom by my side
I know I'll always do right
We'll never give up the fight
'Cause we got time, time, time, time

So hold on, hold tight, this meeting's adjourned
For people with degrees, you got a lot to learn
We've been earnin' jack shit, man, feelin' the burn
Lost the girdle jump the hurdle so now it's our turn

See I've been livin' with my mama since I was an embryo
Never had Nintendo saw alotta Brecht though
I only knew new since Jewel went techno
You think I'm gonna listen and write you a check, no

I was so small, barely big enough to crawl
My mother would call me as I stalled by the wall
In the daycare I was placed in while she's making low wages
My crayons tracing those crazy sad faces

That I tasted my soul all those coals in the mountains
Moving awfully slow, scolding me when I'm lonely
And waiting for mama to unfold me and hold me
She told me, we were gonna be okay

It's just my mama and me
And though I know it may be
Hard to be mama and me
But we've got time, time, time

With my mom by my side
I know I'll always do right
We'll never give up the fight
'Cause we got time, time, time, time

I think back to those days that makes me so mad
[Incomprehensible] fell in the chasm she had to collapse
I'm an educated woman but I wanna attack
Wanna slap my grand dad, wanna whack my dad

Where were you when we were at the welfare office?
The atmosphere's toxic, the clerks are obnoxious
The kids are selling chocolate, chomping their losses
Can't even charge the clothes or play with oshbagosh boxes

Those bruises, short fuses, with bad guys with black eyes
The losin', the oozin', the blood down your right thigh
The wantin' to die with your nose broken, heart chokin'
Hitchin' a ride with a chain smokin', plain spoken Jim

Who's gonna drive you as far as he can
But he ain't got the rent and you ain't got a man
What now mama, tell me you got a plan
We're gonna make little darling with a government's grant

It's just my mama and me
And though I know it may be
Hard to be mama and me
But we've got time, time, time

With my mom by my side
I know I'll always survive
We'll never give up the fight
'Cause we got time, time, time, time

I didn't wanna go so far from home
But it was time you know
Mom needs time alone
But now I need her so, she's my mom

I hate you mother, leave me alone
I love you mommy, I love you mommy
I love you mommy, I love you mommy

I want a suicide pill
Get me a suicide pill, mommy
I wanna die with you
I wanna suicide pill
I wanna die with you
You bitch, get me a suicide pill
