Mama Don't
J.J. Cale Lyrics


Yeah, Mama don't allow no guitar playing 'round here
Yeah, Mama don't allow no guitar playing 'round here
I don't care what mama don't allow
I'll play my guitar anyhow
Mama don't allow no guitar playing 'round here
Hey, Mama don't allow no bass in this place
Yeah, Mama don't allow no bass in this place
I don't care what mama don't allow
I'll play my bass anyhow
Mama don't allow no bass in this place
Yeah, Mama don't allow no drumming going on
Yeah, Mama don't allow no drumming going on
I don't care what mama don't allow
Gonna play my drums anyhow
Mama don't allow no drumming going on
Yeah, Mama don't allow no piano players in here
Mama don't allow no piano players in here
I don't care what mama don't allow
Gonna play my piano anyhow
Mama don't allow no piano players in here
Yeah, Mama don't allow no reefer-smoking round about
Yeah, Mama don't allow no reefer-smoking round about
Yeah, I don't care what mama don't allow
I'm gonna smoke my reefer anyhow
Mama don't allow no reefer in here
Mama don't allow us all playing at the same time
Mama don't allow us all playing at the same time
I don't care what mama don't allow
We're all gonna play all at the same time anyhow
Mama don't allow us all playing at the same time

RIP JJ. The most underrated songwriter of our generation. Also an unbelievable guitar player, which he also got no credit for. A great musician 

Robert Houston

Not by those he wrote songs for. They think he is one of the best. Maybe he didn't have the stage presence but he always said he didn't want that.

J. Greaney

@Jim Stack A lot of people know a few of the many songs he wrote, fewer know he wrote them, and only a relative handful know how amazing he was on guitar. So, not underrated. But under-appreciated for sure.

Fred Jones

Guitar players know. Just saying.

Jim Stack

J.J. was highly rated as a song writer and musician. Please stop saying "underrated" because it's not true.

vanikat2

Kevin Coyne was also underrated.
