  • I've been cheated by you since I don't know when
    So I made up my mind, it must come to an end
    Look at me now, will I ever learn?
    I don't know how but I suddenly lose control
    There's a fire within my soul
    Just one look and I can hear a bell ring
    One more look and I forget everything, whoa

    Mamma mia, here I go again
    My my, how can I resist you?
    Mamma mia, does it show again?
    My my, just how much I've missed you
    Yes, I've been brokenhearted
    Blue since the day we parted
    Why, why did I ever let you go?
    Mamma mia, now I really know
    My my, I could never let you go

    I've been angry and sad about things that you do
    I can't count all the times that I told you we're through
    And when you go, when you slam the door
    I think you know that you won't be away too long
    You know that I'm not that strong
    Just one look and I can hear a bell ring
    One more look and I forget everything, whoa

    Mamma mia, here I go again
    My my, how can I resist you?
    Mamma mia, does it show again?
    My my, just how much I've missed you
    Yes, I've been brokenhearted
    Blue since the day we parted
    Why, why did I ever let you go?
    Mamma mia, even if I say
    Bye bye, leave me now or never
    Mamma mia, it's a game we play
    Bye bye doesn't mean forever

    Mamma mia, here I go again
    My my, how can I resist you?
    Mamma mia, does it show again?
    My my, just how much I've missed you
    Yes, I've been brokenhearted
    Blue since the day we parted
    Why, why did I ever let you go
    Mamma mia, now I really know
    My my, I could never let you go Writer/s: Stig Erik Anderson, Benny Goran Bror Andersson, Bjoern K Ulvaeus

  • Jennifer Harris from Grand Blanc, Mithis is my favorite ABBA song!
  • Ashley from Tacoma, WaMy school choir sang a Mamma Mia Medley. It consisted of: Mamma Mia, S.O.S., Dancing Queen, and Waterloo.
  • Rob from Lincoln, EnglandIn the musical Mamma Mia!, the opening line "I've been cheated by you since I don't know when" was replaced by "I was cheated by you and I think you know when". This is more in keeping with the plot on which the songs in the show hang.
