"Mama" as written by and Kate Miller-heidke....
When I'm out and about
Skipping around the city
Up and down
Without a doubt
I'm okay with me

But when I'm home all alone
With only the phone
And all the crap I've accrued
What can I do?

Mama, I wanted to please you
Mama, I wanted to please
Dadda, dadda, I wanted to be better, better,
I wanted to be mama
I wanted to be you

When I'm out in the car
With the wind in my hair
Spinning wheels
It really feels
Like I'm going somewhere

But when I'm home all alone
With only the phone
Eating crap in the nude
What can I do?

    General CommentThat's what i love about Kate Miller-Heidke's stuff. Its just so real and so easy to relate to and when you see her perform you think "she's so talented and beautiful, she can't have the same issues as me" but you hear her lyrics and its just so... real.
    Now i'm repeating myself

    General CommentI think this song is about a normal girl who likes to laze around and the likes, but who feels like she's disappointing her parents with her life. Even though she's enjoying herself, her parents act like she's wasting her time.

    General Commentshe loves her mama and she wants to be just like her but sometimes disappoints her. watch kind of the hill: it reminds me of hank and bobby's relationship. :D
