My mama she once told me
she said girl whatever you do
don't ever let no two time jiver
make a fool of you
cause he'll take your love and leave you stranded
like a fish up on dry land
and don't ever underestimate
the ways of a no good man
and I found out
I found out now
that everything my mama told me
sure come true

I didn't listen to my mother
cause I just didn't understand
and I let my emotions lead my heart
and fell in love with a no good man
now I'm going around in circles
and I'm about to lose my mind
I'm walking the floor in the midnight hour
wringing my hands and crying
and I found out
I found out now
that everything my mama told me
sure come true

Now I wrote home to my mother
I said come on and see about me
cause I know that he don't love me
but this man won't set me free
and I found out
I found out now
that everything my mama told me
sure come true
