Mama Said
Carleen Anderson Lyrics


My mama told me, my mama said
Pay attention, little sister

Mama, something happened today
A boy came up to me, who said he'd lost his way
He followed me and gently held my hand
Tomorrow he said, he'd take me to sugar land
Mama said

"Run baby, run, go find a place to hide
(Run)
Sounds like the wolf to me, he'll eat you alive
(Run)"

"Run baby, run, go find a place to hide
(Run)
Close all the doors, don't let that wolf inside"
Mama said

Better listen to your mama
'Cause mama surely knows
Better listen to your mama
Don't say I didn't tell you so

Pay attention, little sister
Pay attention, little sister
Pay attention, little sister

But mama, he seemed to be so sweet
And when he smiled at me, he knocked me off my feet
He only wants to kiss and hold me close
I must admit I weep for him and feeling the most, mama said

"Run baby, run, go find a place to hide
(Run)
Sounds like the wolf to me, he'll eat you alive
(Run)"

"Run baby, run, go find a place to hide
(Run)
Close all the doors, don't let that wolf inside"
Mama said

Better listen to your mama
'Cause mama surely knows
Better listen to your mama
Don't say I didn't tell you so

Pay attention, little sister
Pay attention, little sister
Pay attention, little sister

You better run before he knows, he makes
Every tingle in your body quit
Be careful, not to lose your
Before you know that he have complete control, run

You're missing the taste that's left on to his lips
But he can drink it dry on every drip
He'd be the only one who make you cry
And you can do what's up that

"Run baby, go, go find the place to hide
Sounds like the one to me who'll leave to the night
Run baby, go, go find the place to hide
Close all the doors, don't let that wolf inside", mama said

Baby, listen to your mama
'Cause mama surely knows
Baby, listen to your mama
'Cause I will show you some

Baby, listen to your mama
'Cause mama surely knows
Baby, listen to your mama, yeah
Pay attention, little sister

Mama, something happened today
A boy came up to me, who said he'd lost his way
He followed me and gently held my hand
Tomorrow he said he'd take me to sugar land

Mama said.. "Run baby, run go find a place to hide
Sounds like the wolf to me he'll eat you alive
"Run baby, run go find a place to hide
Close all the doors don't let that wolf inside"

Better listen to your mama
Cos mama surely knows
Better listen to your mama
Don't say I didn't tell you so

Pay attention, little sister
Pay attention, little sister
Pay attention, little sister

But mama, he seemed to be so sweet
And when he smiled at me he knocked me off my feet
He only wants to kiss and hold me close
I must admit I weep for him and feel for him most.

But Mama said.. "Run baby, run go find a place to hide
Sounds like the wolf to me, he'll eat you alive
"Run baby, run go find a place to hide
Close all the doors don't let that wolf inside"

Better listen to your mama
Cos mama surely knows
Better listen to your mama
Don't say I didn't tell you so

You better run before he knows he makes
Every tingle in your body quake
You must be careful not to lose your soul
Because before you know it he'll have complete control..

You miss the taste he left upon your lips
How he can drink you dry with just one sip.
How he's the only one who makes you cry
And you can do with out that so best you sooooon fly

Muma Said.."Run baby, run go find a place to hide
Sounds like the wolf to me, he'll eat you alive
"Run baby, run go find a place to hide
Close all the doors don't let that wolf inside"

Baby, listen to your mama
Cos mama surely knows
Baby, listen to your mama
Cos she knows how it goes

So pay attention, little sister
Pay attention, little sister
Pay attention, little sister

You are so absolutely right. This is great stuff.

This is what those big music companies pass on 'cuz it doesnt get that many listeners. All the garbage that is mainstream is what is killing music.

Franco C

The label she was on at this time was owned by Universal Music Group. That's pretty big. This also came out in 1994.
