"My Mama Said" as written by Benny Goran Bror Andersson and Bjoern K. Ulvaeus....
Tried to sneak out without saying
With my loudest record playing
Ooh, my mama said, "Look at this, you haven't done your bed"
My mama said, "That's a thing that you should do instead"

Then I did what she had told me
Dying for my friend to hold me
Ooh, my mama said, "Try and get one thing into your head"
My mama said, "Pa and me, we give you room and bed"
How I want to live my life
Want to live my life
La-la-la, la-la-la, life

In the morning she said "Listen"
Ooh, I felt like in a prison
Yeah, my mama said, "I know you've been out again with Fred"
(My mama said)
My mama said, "Don't you lie, your cheeks are blushing red"
(My mama said)
Oh I want to live my life
Want to live my life
La-la-la, la-la-la, life

I said I can live without it
How I wish you wouldn't doubt it
Ooh, my mama said, "If you want to hurt me go ahead"
(My mama said)
My mama said, "I suppose you'd rather see me dead"
(My mama said)
Oh I want to live my life
Want to live my life
La-la-la, la-la-la, life [Repeat: x4]

    General CommentThis ones about the dreaded mother, sung by her teenage daughter. Mum doesnt want her to grow up and go out with boys, the daughter is rebelling, mother uses emotional blackmail "i suppose youd rather see me dead"
