My Mama Said

Tried to sneak out without saying
with my loudest record playing

Oh oh my mama said,
"look at this you haven't done your bed"
my mama said
"that's a thing that you should do instead"

Yeah, I did what she had told me
dying for my friend to hold me

Oh oh my mama said
"try and get one thing into your head"
my mama said
"pa and me we give you room and bread"

How I wanna live my life,
wanna live my life,
Ia Ia Ia,
Ia Ia Ia life

In the morning she said, "Listen"
Oh, I felt like in a prison

Yeah my mama said,
"I know you've been out again with Fred"
my mama said
"don't you lie, your cheeks are blushing red"

How I wanna live my life,
wanna live my life,
Ia Ia Ia,
Ia Ia Ia life

I said, "I can't live without him
how I wish you wouldn't doubt him"

Oh oh my mama said,
"if you wanna hurt me go ahead"
my mama said
"I suppose you'd rather see me dead"

Oh I wanna live my life,
wanna live my life,
Ia Ia Ia,
Ia Ia Ia life
La Ia la,
Ia Ia Ia life...
