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

Well, papa he left home today
And said he ain't comin' back no more
He said 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, mama's got a true friend
And 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 want her somebody, Lord
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, mama's found a true friend
Mama's got a girlfriend now

Papa he left home today
He was 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 'round 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, mama 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, mama's found a true friend
Mama's got a girlfriend now
