  • Some are born with a silver spoon
    Anything they want
    Some are born to a backstreet mother with a needle in her arm
    None of us really have a choice when we come into the world
    We just open our eyes
    It's a roll of the dice
    For every boy and girl

    Who oh oh oh oh oh
    That's the way it goes
    Let it Roll Let it Roll Let It Roll
    Who oh oh oh oh oh
    Like The World's gone mad
    And it shows , yes it shows, I just know
    We all need a Good Mama Bad

    Some men fall for a green-eyed devil
    Who wears her dresses tight
    She looks so good hangin' on his arm
    But when they lay down at night
    She's a real heartache, mean as a snake
    Leaves him cold as ice
    He gets burned and the lessons learned
    Everything has a price

    Who oh oh oh oh oh
    That's the way it goes
    Let it Roll Let it Roll Let It Roll
    Who oh oh oh oh oh
    Like The World's gone mad
    And it shows, Yes it Shows, I just know
    We All Need a good momma Bad

    Some never get no love at all
    Some get so much it hurts
    Some folks get all they desire
    Some get what they deserve

    Who oh oh oh oh oh
    That's the way it goes
    Let it Roll Let it Roll Let It Roll
    Who oh oh oh oh oh
    Like The World's gone mad
    And it shows, Yes it Shows
    Who oh oh oh oh oh
    That's the way it goes
    Let it Roll Let it Roll Let It Roll
    Who oh oh oh oh oh
    Like The World's gone mad
    And it shows, yes it shows, I just know
    We all need a Good Mama Bad
