Mama's Right - Poem by Candy Kelly
Oh wow, just look at that guy
His skin’s as dark and sultry as a summer night
Sky, and his eyes...
His eyes hold the glitter of the stars that shine
His voice beckons me with all the promises
I’ve always wished for
And I sure would love it if that man were mine.
He’s got a way about him
Velvet voice pours a potion
I could listen to him talking
For all eternity
Oh if only he were in love, if only he were in love,
if only he were in love with me.
Ah, but mama!
Mama’s been around and she’s seen it all
Warned me off of men just like him,
Said having him might seem like heaven
But the way he’d hurt me would be a sin.
He knows exactly what he has,
His smile is haunting me, taunting me to look his way
And mama says he’ll use it to make my heart break
She says I’ll die with him and I feel I’ll die without him
I still can’t help but wanting, wanting him,
Wanting him anyway.
And I hate,
I jus’ hate it when my mamas right.
But she was there to soothe my tears
When he left me in the middle
Of a cold and starless night.
And I can’t deny it, can’t deny it,
you know, I can’t deny it when my mama’s right.
