Let me tell a story
You might find it boring
It's about understanding glory
You just want something that is mine
You lift me up and push me back down again
You just want something that is mine
You lift me up and push me back down again

I was mama's soldier
Crying on no one's shoulder
Making my papa proud again
I was mama's soldier

Lost and found at the same time
Everything's right at the wrong time
I'll tell you what's on my mind
I just want something that is mine
You lift me up and push me back down again
I just want something that is mine
You lift me up and push me back down again

I was mama's soldier
Crying on no one's shoulder
Making my papa proud again
I was mama's soldier

You struggle all your life not to come behind
Then it's too late and you try to rewind
Mind your own business, stay out of trouble
You gotta stand up tall in the struggle

I was mama's soldier
Crying on no one's shoulder
Making my papa proud again
I was mama's soldier
I was mama's soldier
Crying on no one's shoulder
Making my papa proud again
I was mama's soldier

(Mama, I'm too late this time / Papa, it's too late this time)
