Mamas

Tracie Lynn

She’ll listen to my stories for hours on the end
When I’m feeling lonely she’ll be my closest friend
She laughs when I’m happy and she’ll cry when I’m sad
But don’t you ever cross me
It really makes her mad
And she’ll slip you that 20 when you’re down on luck and out of money
Daddy acts like he don’t see
That’s the way Mamas are
That’s the way Mamas are

She never gets the sleep she needs on a rowdy Friday nights
She’ll lay in bed for hours praying your alright
She’ll always cheer the loudest ~ She’s the proudest ~ Dreams the biggest
She’s always a believer in your style
She"ll have to fight those tears
When I stepped out on your own
But she’ll held you close to whisper
You can call collect to home
That’s the way Mamas are
That’s the way Mamas are

Br Somebody up there must like me
He blessed me with a love that is so hard to explain
And even in this madness somehow she stays sane
She always sees the rainbow thru the rain

V When you think you’ve done your worst and you’ll really disappoint her
You’re afraid to tell her you don’t like to see her cry
Then like a miracle from heaven like the sun that warms the day
She will throw her arms around you and tell you it’s ok
Where she tucks the pain away I’ll never understand
She might be a woman but she takes things like a man
That’s the way Mamas are
That’s the way Mamas are

That’s the way Mamas are
That’s the way Mamas are
