"Mama Do (Uh Oh, Uh Oh)" as written by Mads Louis Hauge and Phil Thornalley....
Every night I go
Every night I go sneaking out the door
I lie a little more
Baby I'm a helpless

There's something bout the night
And the way it hides all the things I like
Little black butterflies
Deep inside me

What would my mama do (uh oh uh oh)
If she knew bout me and you (uh oh uh oh)
What would my daddy say (uh oh uh oh)
If he saw me hurt this way (uh oh uh oh)

Why should I feel ashamed
Feeling guilty at the mention of your name
Here we are again
Its really perfect

What would my mama do (uh oh uh oh)
If she knew bout me and you (uh oh uh oh)
What would my daddy say (uh oh uh oh)
If he saw me hurt this way (uh oh uh oh)

All the things a girl should know
All the things she can't control
All the things a girl should know
She can't control

What would my mama do (uh oh uh oh)
If she knew bout me and you (uh oh uh oh)
What would my daddy say (uh oh uh oh)
If he saw me hurt this way (uh oh uh oh)

Uh oh uh oh
Uh oh uh oh
Uh oh uh oh

    General CommentI adore this song. I basically think it mean's that she's got this boyfriend that neither of her parents approve of, so she's sneakin out, but also she's like "what would my mama do" basically if she found out what she really got up to. She's hurting through this relationship with the boy possibly becase she's lying to her parents.

    I dk but that's my defenation of the song (:

    General CommentYeah i think similar to Tannie, maybe that she is going back out with an ex boyfriend that has hurt her in the past or something and she is scared what her dad would say to her or maybe even him, also what her mum would do to her again maybe him. I really like the video again, its like she is telling the boy its over and maybe she has realized that her parents are correct.

    General CommentThis song is brilliant, it sums up brilliantly the situation i'm in with my boyfriend, whom i keep a secret from my parents, and more recently my friends.

    General CommentYeah, I love also this song but... I don't understand why she says: "Mamma do" instead of "Mamma does". In this case, ok, maybe is in order to get a better sound but why she doesn't say "daddy says"??? I'm spanish so, probably will be something i can't undertand. Can anybody answer me?? thanks a lot.

    My Opinionlol this song doesn't really need to be explained, imo. it's very straight-forward.

    anyway, i love pixie, and i love this song. her voice is perfect for a song like this.
    this is how i feel about the relationship i'm in, i love this song more than ever now
