Mamma's Place Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

So you think you know it all
But that's just the arrogance of youth
I've been there and I've done it, baby
I'm tellin' you the truth
Your Momma was a tear away
I used to think I knew it all
Thought I could play the game and not get played, no
But then the fall.

Don't you go pull a fast one
I used to be an awful rascal
Do you think you invented being bad?
I used to be a real ruffian
But had to become a tough one
Do you think you invented being bad?

Don't you go pull a fast one
I used to be an awful rascal
Do you think you invented being bad?
I used to be a real ruffian
But had to become a tough one
Do you think you invented being bad?

I bet you think I look respectable
You should've seen me in my prime
You'd have thought that I was headed for, oh yeah
I life of crime.
I bet you think that you're the clever one, clever one
The one that got away.
Well, I've seen them come and seen them go, oh yeah
But I have it made.

I'm as sweet as I can be
I've earned respectability.
Do you know I have a history?
You won't get to pull the wool over my eyes
Fool, if you think you'll make a fool of me.

Nothing you do
Remotely new.
It all begun,
When I was young.
In younger days
I went astray
And might I say,
It's all a haze
It's all been done,
Your brand new craze
It all begun
At Momma's place

Don't you go pull a fast one
I used to be an awful rascal
Do you think you invented being bad?
I used to be a real ruffian
But had to become a tough one
Do you think you invented being bad?

Don't you go pull a fast one
I used to be an awful rascal
Do you think you invented being bad?
I used to be a real ruffian
But had to become a tough one
Do you think you invented being bad?
