Mama Sweet Mama

Mama, sweet mama

Believe me when I say

How I need you

Every single day

Sunlight, moonlight

Neither would I see

If you had not

Shone your love on me


You keep the lifeline going, you keep the nightlight glowing

You keep the blossom growing on the vine

You’re the sole salvation of the whole situation

You  keep the lantern shining all the time


Mama, mama

See my streaming face

How your footfall

Sweetens every place

Heal me, know me

See me through the storm

Sing me, change me

Love me, keep me warm




How I need you, how I need you
