BRUCE MARTONE


MAMA I FEEL LIKE A PRISONER


OH MAMA HE MY GUILDING LIGHT
MY DREAM COME TRUE
AND YES I WANT TO MARRY HIM
I THINK HE GONNA ASK ME TONIGHT.
AND THAT WAS THEN THIS IS NOW,
AND I FEEL LIKE A PRISONER
EVER SINCE I SAID I DO
I FEEL LIKE A PRISONER
AND I CAN'T GET AWAY FROM YOU,
SO MAMA IF HE CALLS
TELLING I'M NOT HOME
I WENT TO THE GYM
I JUST WANT TO BE ALONE
JUST FOR TONIGHT
AND I PROMISE YOU MAMA
IN THE MORNING I'LL MAKE IT RIGHT
BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE A PRISONER
EVER SINCE I SAID I DO
I FEEL LIKE A PRISONER
AND THERE NOTHING I CAN DO
NOW MAMA YOU WERE RIGHT
I GUESS I WAS BLINDEN BY HIS LIGHT
BUT STILL THERE NOTHING I CAN DO
BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE A PRISONER
EVER SINCE I MET HIM
I FEEL LIKE A PRISONER
EVER SINCE I SAID I DO
I FEEL LIKE A PRISONER
AND MAYBE HE DOES TO

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
