"Mama Told Me Not To Come" as written by and Randy Newman....
Want some whiskey in your water?
Sugar in your tea?
What's all these crazy questions they're askin' me?
This is the craziest party that could ever be
Don't turn on the lights 'cause I don't want to see

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
She said "That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"

Open up the window, let some air into this room
I think momma's chocking from the smell of stale perfume
And the cigarette you're smoking about to scare me half to death
Open up the window, let me catch my breath

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
She said "That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son, son, son"

Some radio is blastin'
Someone's knockin' at the door
I'm lookin' at my girlfriend
She just passed out on the floor
I've seen so many things
I ain't never seen before
Don't know what it is
I don't want to see no more

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come (Mama told me)
She said "That ain't the way to have fun, no" (no, no)
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"

Mama told me, mama told me
Mana told me, mama told me
Mama told me not to come (Mama told me not to come)
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, no, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son" (Mama told me)

Mama told me, mama told me
Mama told me, mama told me
Mama told me not to come (Mama told me not to come)
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun" (oh no, no)

    General CommentYou haven't lived if this song means nothing to you!!!!! We've all been there, at this kinda party and we've all had our mothers warning us in vain. To see what this song really means it needs to be played at a house party where the joints and lines are being passed around freely together with the booze and see how many smiling faces and laughs it gets.

    General CommentI say, Tommy didn't follow his mum's advice. Especially not if you read "not to c***"!
