"Mama Said" as written by Ian Copeland Green and Carleen Anderson....
My mama told me, my mama said
Pay attention, little sister

Mama, something happened today
A boy came up to me, who said he'd lost his way
He followed me and gently held my hand
Tomorrow he said, he'd take me to sugar land
Mama said

"Run baby, run, go find a place to hide
(Run)
Sounds like the wolf to me, he'll eat you alive
(Run)"

"Run baby, run, go find a place to hide
(Run)
Close all the doors, don't let that wolf inside"
Mama said

Better listen to your mama
'Cause mama surely knows
Better listen to your mama
Don't say I didn't tell you so

Pay attention, little sister
Pay attention, little sister
Pay attention, little sister

But mama, he seemed to be so sweet
And when he smiled at me, he knocked me off my feet
He only wants to kiss and hold me close
I must admit I weep for him and feeling the most, mama said

"Run baby, run, go find a place to hide
(Run)
Sounds like the wolf to me, he'll eat you alive
(Run)"

"Run baby, run, go find a place to hide
(Run)
Close all the doors, don't let that wolf inside"
Mama said

Better listen to your mama
'Cause mama surely knows
Better listen to your mama
Don't say I didn't tell you so

Pay attention, little sister
Pay attention, little sister
Pay attention, little sister

You better run before he knows, he makes
Every tingle in your body quit
Be careful, not to lose your
Before you know that he have complete control, run

You're missing the taste that's left on to his lips
But he can drink it dry on every drip
He'd be the only one who make you cry
And you can do what's up that

"Run baby, go, go find the place to hide
Sounds like the one to me who'll leave to the night
Run baby, go, go find the place to hide
Close all the doors, don't let that wolf inside", mama said

Baby, listen to your mama
'Cause mama surely knows
Baby, listen to your mama
'Cause I will show you some

Baby, listen to your mama
'Cause mama surely knows
Baby, listen to your mama, yeah
Pay attention, little sister
