Oh, mother

Oh mother of mine
I've, I've been blind
The things that you tell me, yeah
I paid, I really paid it no mind

Oh please, oh please forgive me
Yes, I know I was wrong
But now, now I know, yeah
My place, my place is at home

Can't you see I've been crying now
Almost dying
I need your advice mama, yeah

Oh, mama
Oh, mama
Oh, mama
Come and tell me now

How much about love, you don't understand?
Yes, you know that you were wrong
Or when you thought that you were wrong
Yes, it was that young girl
She put you in such a whirl

Yeah, I said, "Mama, don't you worry now, yeah"
I guess I had it coming anyhow, yes I did
I'm gonna do everything you say
Hmm, each and every day

I'm gonna be a man, yes, I am
Now that I understand
Hmm, I'm not gonna be no fool no more
Yeah because you told me so

Whoa mama
Oh, mother
Oh, mother
Come on and tell me now

Oh tell me now
Hmm, I'm sorry
Yes I am, I am really sorry
Oh, I should have think of you, yeah
Yes, I should have because you know what to say
