"Mama's Boy" as written by and James M. Franks....
Couldn't keep a secret
Got a concrete skull
You couldn't shut up
You're an imbecile
You're an ugly dog
There's nothing to gain
You couldn't shut up
You had a bad, bad brain

Couldn't hold your tongue
You were just too young
Like a two-year-old
You told, you told
You are all the same, jelly-Bean brain
Every one's a secret nerd
Every one's closet lame

Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy
Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy
Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy

I don't want to work in a hot dog stand
Be a busboy messenger or a doorman
It's an abstract world
You're an abstract man
Abstract city don't give a damn

Couldn't keep a secret
Got a concrete skull
You couldn't shut up
You're an imbecile
You're an ugly dog
There's nothing to gain
You couldn't shut up
You had a bad, bad brain

Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy
Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy
Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy

Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy
Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy
Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy

Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy
Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy
Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy

    General Commentthis song is great.. and its about untrustworthy people. couldn't keep a secret, about something bad, probably, cause like a 2 year old you told, you told. and he probably told his mom, so they were makin fun of him...

    General Commentyou are all the same jelly bean brain

    I love this.
    I write these lines on every desk that I sit in in school.
    Just so everyone knows that I'm on to them.

    General CommentI always thought it was about a low-level knockaround guy or a snitch about to get whacked.
    I read that Johnny was pinched for breaking into a store, but they guy that identified him was killed shortly afterwards. I always thought this incident inspired the song.
