E. Mama?

B. What?

E. I wanna ask you somethin'

B. Yeah

E. Mama, if I meet a real fine boy
And he says that I'm his pride and joy
Oh if he walks me in the pale moon light
Oh when he say he wanna hold me tight
What must I say, Mama, oh tell me what must I say

B. Tell him no, girl, tell that man
Tell him no, make him understand
Unless he's got a preacher in his plan
Tell him no, you better tell him no

E. But, Mama, if he say he love me so
And he say he'll never let me go
Oh if he tell me that tonight's the night
Oh when he's gonna make me see the light
What must I say, Mama, oh tell me what must I say

B. Tell him no, girl, and take my advice
Keep his hands off the merchandise
Unless he's thinking of choosing rice
Tell him no, you better tell him no

E. mama he`s fine

B. girl I hate to see you cryin '

E. if I go he won't come back

B. theres another train moving on the very same track

E. but maybe maybe I can let him go
or maybe when he stay ill feel aglow
if I tell him now whats on my mind
oh still he say he wanna hold me tight
what must I say mama oh tell me what must I say

B. tell him no girl
play your part
don`t wanna see you with a broken heart
get the ring before the romance starts
tell him no you better tell him no
