"Mama Kin (Aerosmith cover)" as written by and Steven Tyler....
It ain't easy livin' like a gypsy
Tell ya, honey, how it feels
I've been dreamin' floatin' down stream
And losin' touch with all that's real
Whole lotta lover, keepin' undercover
Never knowin' where you been-Oo yeah
You've been fadin', always out paradin'
Keep in touch with mama kin!

You always got your tail on the wag
Spittin' fire from your mouth
Just like a dragon
You act like a perpetual drag
You better check it out
'Cause someday soon
You'll have to climb back on the wagon

It ain't easy livin' like you want to
It's so hard to find piece of mind
Yes it is
The way I see it
You got to say 'shee-it'
But don't forget to drop me a line

Bald as an egg at eighteen
And workin' for daddy's such a drag
You still stuff your mouth
With his beans
You better check it out or someday soon
You'll have to climb back on the wagon

Keep in touch with mama kin
Tell her where you gone and been
Livin' out your fantasy
Sleepin' late and smokin' tea
Keep in touch with mama kin
Tell her where you gone and been
Livin' out your fantasy
Sleepin' late and suckin' me, oh no

It ain't easy livin' like you want to
It's so hard to find piece of mind
Yes it is
The way I see it
You got to say 'shee-it'
But don't forget to drop me a line

Bald as an egg at eighteen
And workin' for daddy's just a drag
You still stuff your mouth
With his beans
You better check it out or someday soon
You'll have to climb back on the wagon

Keep in touch with mama kin
Tell her where you gone and been
Livin' out your fantasy
Sleepin' late and smokin' tea
Keep in touch with mama kin
Tell her where you gone and been
Livin' out your fantasy
Sleepin' late and suckin' me
Ohh, ow, ow, ow, yeah! -ow

    General Commentslickvic- are you kidding me? First of all how are you going to compare a singer of a band that has only one of the original members while aerosmith has had almost 20 albums and have survived since the early 70's. Second of all how are you going to say steven tyler sucks? Mama Kin, Dream on, Same old song and dance, Seaons of wither, Toys in the attic, uncle salty, walk this way, sweet emotion, no more no more, back in the saddle, last child, nobodys fault, draw the line, kings and queens... these are just to name the classics... Without Aerosmith do you have any idea how many bands wouldnt of made the same impact on the rock world. Van Halen did quite a few aerosmith covers early in their career, where would they be without aerosmith, where would tesla be without aerosmith, dude where would guns n roses be without aerosmith and just so you know as much as i respect axl rose, steven tyler did a much better singing this song this axl.

    General CommentGuns n' Roses covered this song in 1986.. in 'Lies'.They weren't famous at all back then. Aerosmith's version is more "clean" and simple. The version of Guns n' Roses ROCKS! It's dirty, it's 86's Guns! (and they also change the lyrics in the ending... wwwow!)

    General Commentwhen they take songs, though, they give new meanings to the words cause they're GNR--no matter who wrote it originally-Bob Dylan, Aerosmith, Charles Manson...

    General CommentEhh, Axl tries too hard to be Steven. And he's not. The original is cleaner and sleazier and jus better. Sorry GNR, that's just the way it is.
