lyrics

Mama won’t you, write me a letter?
Stick it in the US Mail
And mama I do, hope you feel better.
For you, I will not fail.

I may not always be there when you need me, but don’t be scared

You may not always be there when I need you, but have no fear.

And mama I know that you’ve done things, in which you are not proud.
But mama me, if only me, would know the things that’d you’d go through, to wow a crowd.

Cause when I was a little girl, you’d dress me like Bardot, and the hallway’d become a catwalk, and you’d watch me go to the show.
You’d say “all the little girls are pretty, but you’re pretty like fresh flowers”.
I was a super hero, mama, with super powers.

I may not always be there when you need me, but don’t be scared.
You may not always be there when I need you, but have no fear, I’m right here, in your ear.
I will be leaving soon, oh yes all of you, so take care of each other out there.
For I will always be, in your heart you see, I’m right here: put your hand over your chest, oh and always do your best.

Come Lola, come Clementine, come Zuzu.
Come Loretta, come Sierra, come Blue.
Come Honey, come children, come kids.
Oh the whole world is out dancing in the street.
Kick off your shoes child, feel the cold and wet concrete.
