Loves Me Like a Rock
Paul Simon Lyrics


(Mhm, that's that, that's that groove)

When I was a little boy
(When I was just a boy)
And the Devil called my name
(When I was just a boy)
I'd say, "Now who do (who)
Who do you think you're fooling?"
(When I was just a boy)
I'm a consecrated boy
(When I was just a boy)
Singer in a Sunday choir
Oh, my mama loves me, she loves me
She get down on her knees and hug me
Oh, she loves me like a rock
She rock me like the rock of ages
And loves me
She love me, love me, love me, love me

When I was grown to be a man
(Grown to be a man)
And the Devil would call my name
(Grown to be a man)
I'd say "now who do (who)
Who do you think you're fooling?"
(Grown to be a man)

I'm a consummated man
(Grown to be a man)
I can snatch a little purity
My mama loves me, she loves me
She get down on her knees and hug me
Oh, she loves me like a rock
She rock me like the rock of ages
And loves me
She love me, love me, love me, love me

And if I was President
(Was the president)
The minute the Congress called my name
(Was the president)
I'd say "now who do (who)
Who do you think you're fooling?"
(Who do you think you're fooling?)

I've got the presidential seal
(Was the president)
I'm up on the presidential podium
My mama loves me, she loves me
She get down on her knees and hug me
Oh, and she loves me like a rock
She rock me like the rock of ages
And love me
She love me, love me, love me, love me
(Loves me like a rock)
She love me, love me, love me, love me
(Loves me like a rock)
She love me, love me, love me, love me
(Loves me like a rock)

(Loves me like a rock)
(Loves me like a rock, oh baby)
(Loves me like a rock)
(Loves me like a rock)
(Loves me like a rock, oh baby)
(Loves me like a rock)
(Loves me like a rock)
(Loves me like a rock, oh baby)
(Loves me like a rock)
(Loves me like a rock)
(Loves me like a rock, oh baby)
(Loves me like a rock)
(Loves me like a rock)
(Loves me like a rock, oh baby)
(Loves me like a rock)
(Loves me like a rock)
(Loves me like a rock, oh baby)
(Loves me like a rock)
(Loves me like a rock)
(Loves me like a rock, oh baby)

Paul Simon was great at blending different cultures in his music. In this particular case he blended black gospel music with his own style. A decade later he would add the soulful sound of South African Singers to the song "call me Al". Paul Simon is one of the most gifted songwriters of the 20th century.

I agree

Guy Williams

He wrote the music to this song, lyrics were written by a third grader known as Guy Williams

Tina McIntosh

When I was a kid in Southern California, in 73, my art teacher would play this at the end of every class. Great memories, awesome song.
