"Mama Said" as written by and Luther Dixon/willie Denson....
Mama said there'll be days like this,
There'll be days like this Mama said
(Mama said, mama said)
Mama said there'll be days like this,
There'll be days like this my Mama said
(Mama said, mama said)
I went walking the other day,
Everything was going fine,
I met a little boy named Billy Joe
And then I almost lost my mind
Mama said there'll be days like this,
There'll be days like this Mama said
(Mama said, mama said)
Mama said there'll be days like this,
There'll be days like this my Mama said
My eyes are wide open
But all that I can see is,
Chapel bells are callin for everyone but-a me
But I don't worry cause
Mama said there'll be days like this,
There'll be days like this Mama said
(Mama said, mama said)
Mama said there'll be days like this,
There'll be days like this my Mama said
And then she said someone will look at me
Like I'm looking at you one day,
Then I might find
I don't want it any old way,
So I don't worry cause
Mama said there'll be days like this,
There'll be days like this Mama said
(Mama said, mama said)
Mama said there'll be days like this,
There'll be days like this my Mama said
Mama said, mama said
Hey! Don't you worry,
Mama said mama said
Hey! Don't you worry now.
Mama said mama said,
Hey! Hey!

    General CommentEverything was going fine
    I met a little boy named Billy Joe
    And then I almost lost my mind

    .... innocent & naive, fell in love, got her heart broken.

    My eyes are wide open
    But all that I can see is
    Chapel bells are callin' for everyone but-a me
    But I don't worry 'cause

    ..... couldnt find love, everyone else *seems* to be finding love except her.

    And then she said someone will look at me
    Like I'm looking at you one day
    Then I might find
    I don't want it any old way
    So I don't worry, 'cause

    ..... perhaps they aren't finding real love, just getting married. shes waiting out, she wants real love, not 'any old way.' she knows she will find love, that she must find it.

    General CommentI guess that I never really .istened carefully to this song before. But this morning when I woke up I was dreaming this song, and I thought: "oh no, it might be a bad omen," so I layed low all day. Then, I decided to listen carefully, and surprise! It's not really about such a bad day. It's just about hoping for something wonderful, holding out for something better. Knowing it will surely happen, remembering to have faith, and not lose hope.

    General CommentHahaha. i always have this song stuck in my head. Its so classic. I really can't think of anything it means to me, it just has a good message. like "alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day", kine of thing (hell, glimpse of my past here). There will be days like this, things will be ok too.
