"Mama" as written by Johnny Mac Powell, Samuel Tai Anderson, Bradley B. C. Avery, David Carr and Mark D. Lee....
Well hey Mama, take a look at me now
Things are going fine here in the big town
Hey Mama, if you could only see
All of my friends and how they love me

And I know, you said "I need Jesus"
But mama can't you see I'm doing fine
Oh yes I know, you said "I need Jesus"
But mama I ain't got the time, no I ain't got the time, well no, no

And hey mama, well it's been two long years
Since I have seen you, how are things you hear?
Hey mama, things they aren't the same
Since I last wrote you, well things have changed

Yes I know, you say "I need Jesus"
But mama can't you see I'm doing fine
Oh yes I know, you say "I need Jesus"
But mama I ain't got the time, well I ain't got the time, no, no
No, mama, no, no, no mama, mama no

Well, every thing's going wrong
Yes, every thing's going wrong
No, I can't take it no more
Well, every thing's going wrong
Yes, every thing's going wrong
No, I can't take it no more

Well, I need Jesus
I guess, I need Jesus, well forgive me
Come into my life, come into my heart
Precious Jesus, precious Jesus

And I know, you said "I need Jesus"
But mama can't you see I'm doing, can't you see I'm doing
Oh yes, I know I'm doing, you said "I need Jesus"
Well mama He is in my life, yes He is in my life, yeah, yeah

Yeah mama, Jesus save me
Yeah mama, yeah, yes
Yeah mama, Jesus save me
Yeah mama, mama, yeah

    General CommentWritten like letters between a mother and her lost son. In the beginning of the song, the son is alright and doesn't see a need for God in his life. As the "letters" progress, the son's attitude is changed through experiences in his life and he ends up accepting Christ. Incredible song from an incredible album.
