Mama told me when I was young:
“Come sit beside me, my only son,
And listen closely to what I say,
And if you do this it’ll help you some sunny day”
“Take your time, don’t live too fast.
Troubles will come and they will pass.
You’ll find a woman and you’ll find love.
And don’t forget, son, there is someone up above”
“And be a simple kind of man.”
be something you love and understand.
Baby be a simple kind of man. won’t you do this for me, son, if you can”
“Forget your lust for the rich man’s gold.
All that you need is in your soul
And you can do this, baby, if you try.
All that I want for you, my son, is to be satisfied”
Boy, don’t you worry, you’ll find yourself
Follow your heart and nothing else!
