Papa, he left home today
He says he ain't comin' back again
He says he ain't gonna be nobody's second best
Just 'cause mama's got a special kind of friend

Papa, he left home today
He says he ain't comin' back no more
He says he ain't gonna take no damn back seat
And how could mama do him so low

But mama's got a girlfriend now, boy
Mama's got a girlfriend now
Mama's got a girlfriend
Yeah, she's got a true friend
Mama's got a girlfriend now

You see mama don't watch your damn football
And your beer drinkin' just won't do
You're just stayin' out late and you're preachin' the hate
And you never have been true

You see, mama she wanted somebody
Who will let her be herself
So she's leavin' you and your stinky damn ways
'Cause she's found somebody else

And mama's got a girlfriend now, boy
Mama's got a girlfriend now
Mama's got a girlfriend
Yeah, she's found a true friend
Mama's got a girlfriend now

Papa, he left home today
Wavin' his hands and cryin'
You could tell by the sound and the tone in his voice
That his heart was slowly dyin'

But mama said, "Boy, if I ever
Catch you here again
You ain't never gonna have nobody else
Not a woman or a man"

And mama's got a girlfriend now, boy
Mama's got a girlfriend now
Mama's got a girlfriend
Yeah, she's found a true friend
Mama's got a girlfriend now

Mama's got a girlfriend now, boy
Mama's got a girlfriend now
Mama's got a girlfriend
Yeah, she's found a true friend
Mama's got a girlfriend
Yeah, she's found a true friend now
