MAMA SAID
© 2006 Bonnie Wilson Daniels

When I was just a little girl,
My mama said to me,
Sit right down beside me child,
And turn off that TV,
Iíve got some things to tell you,
About men youíre gonna meet,
That no good, lyin, cheatin kind,
Whoíll sweep you off your feet.

CHORUS:
But youíre the one,
Mama didnít tell me about,
You lit my fire,
And nothing can put it out,
You turned me on with words so sweet,
Iím burning from my head down to my feet,
Youíre so darn good
You make me wanna be bad

Mama said it takes all kinds,
To make the world go round,
So take your time and a good long look,
To see what you have found,
Look for these fine qualities,
Rich and real good looking,
A yacht that sails the Seven Seas,
Eat out or he does the cooking.

CHORUS
But youíre the one,
Mama didnít tell me about,
You lit my fire,
And nothing can put it out,
You turned me on with words so sweet,
Iím burning from my head down to my feet,
Youíre so darn good
You make me wanna be bad

BRIDGE:
Mama, mama I know you said,
Check him out before you wed,
But I was smart,Thought with my heart,
And didnít even have to use my head.

CHORUS:
Now heís the one,
Mama didnít tell me about,
He lit my fire,
And nothing can put it out,
He turned me on with words so sweet,
Iím burning from my head down to my feet,
Heís so darn good
He makes me wanna be bad

TAG:
He turned me on with words so sweet,
Iím burning from my head down to my feet,
Heís so darn good
He makes me wanna be bad
Oh yeah, mama
Yeah, hey, yeah
He makes me wanna be bad
