MAMA!
MAMA!
MAMA!
MAMA!

You've gone and died -- now I'm ALONE!
Without a mother no house is a home,
You had the strength of a salmon fighting upstream
My only goal in life was to fulfill your dreams
You know I've been a good boy who has never sinned
I do not deserve this living hell which now begins

MAMA!
MAMA!
MAMA!
MAMA!

Daddy died oh so long ago
Just you and me against the world you know
Remember when the circus came to town
And I was frightened by the clowns?
With you gone I'm frightened again
What can I do? hell, I'm fifty-seven!
I never had the chance to take a wife
Now I've got choice but to take my life
No longer must I sing this sad song
I'll see you again before long

Oh Mama, Mama
Why'd you have to leave me?
Oh Mama
Why did you ever leave me? Mama, oh dear Mama
Who the hell's gonna feed me?
Well oh well oh Mama
What'd you leave me FOR?
