"Mama Didn't Lie" as written by and Curtis Mayfield....
Mama didn't lie, she didn't lie.
Mama didn't lie, she didn't lie.
Here comes that boy and his friends,
Making eyes at me again.
Do they all think that I'm a toy,
To be played with by every boy?
Well, they're wrong to think I
Will be caught by the wink of an eye.
My mama didn't lie. (Mama didn't lie.) She didn't lie.

The greatest pastime in this man's world
Is playin' tricks on every young girl.
To have one is how they get their kick.
But not me because I know their trick.
And they're wrong to think I
Will be caught by the wink of an eye.
My mama didn't lie. (Mama didn't lie.) She didn't lie.
Mama didn't lie, she didn't lie.

I remember what my mama told me:
She said, "Girl stay in your class,
You got a whole lot of growin' and a'learnin' to do
Girl don't cha go so fast.

The greatest pastime in this man's world
Is playin' tricks on every young girl.
To have one is how they get their kick.
But no me because I know their trick.
And they're wrong to think I
Will be caught by the wink of an eye.
My mama didn't lie. (Mama didn't lie) She didn't lie.
Mama didn't lie, she didn't lie.
Mama didn't
