Want some whiskey in your water, sugar in your tea
What's all these crazy questions, they're asking me?
This is the craziest party that could ever be
Don't turn on the lights, 'cause I don't wanna to see

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
She said, "That ain't the way to have fun, son"

Open up the window, let some air into this room
I think, I'm almost chokin' from the smell of stale perfume
And the cigarette you're smokin', 'bout to scare me half to death
Open up the window let me catch my breath

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
She said, "That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son, son, son"

The radio is blastin' and someone's knockin' at the door
I'm lookin' at my girlfriend, she just passed out on the floor
I've seen so many things, I ain't never seen before
Don't know what it is but I don't wanna see no more

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come, mama told me she said
"That ain't the way to have fun no, no, no"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"

Mama told me, mama told me
Mama told me, mama told me
Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come

That ain't the way to have fun, son
That ain't the way to have fun
(That what she say, she say)
"That ain't the way to have fun, no"
"That ain't the way to have fun"

Mama told me
Mama told me
Mama told me
Mama told me
Mama told me

She told me not to come
(Mama told me not to come)
That ain't no way to have fun
(That ain't no way to have fun)
That ain't no way to have fun, son
That ain't no way to have fun
(Oh no no)
Maybe I should have listened
