  • He's such a nice boy, so well-mannered
    He's so much better than the last one you brought around
    Please and thank you, everything matters
    I'm gonna make sure that she knows I'm the best she's found

    The moment she walks out that door
    I'm not pretending anymore

    If your mother knew all of the things that we do
    If your mother knew all the things we do
    If your mother knew, she'd keep me so far from you
    If your mother knew all the things we do

    Sneak out the window, pass over pillows
    I'll be waiting in the car right around the block
    Back of the Benzo (back of the Benzo)
    More than a friend zone (more than a friend zone)
    We've been hiding since the time they forgot to knock

    The moment she walks out that door (she walks out the door)
    I'm not pretending anymore

    If your mother knew all of the things that we do (yeah)
    If your mother knew (if your mother)
    All the things we do (all that we do)
    If your mother knew, she'd keep me so far from you
    If your mother knew (oh) all the things we do

    Next time that she sees me
    She gon' act like she don't know me
    'Cause she knows all of the story
    Now your daddy wants to kill me (ah)
    Next time that she sees me
    She gon' act like she don't know me
    'Cause she knows all of the story
    Now your daddy wants to kill me (yeah, yeah)
    If your mother only knew (ooh)

    The moment she walks out that door
    I'm not pretending anymore

    If your mother knew all of the things that we do
    If your mother knew all the things we do (we do)
    If your mother knew, she'd keep me so far from you
    If your mother knew all the things we do (from you, oh)

    Next time that she sees me (hey)
    She gon' act like she don't know me (does she know me?)
    'Cause she knows all of the story
    Now your daddy wants to kill me (yeah)
    Next time that she sees me
    She gon' act like she don't know me
    'Cause she knows all of the story
    Now your daddy wants to kill me (yeah)

    If your mother knew all the things we do
    If your mother knew all the things we do
    If your mother knew all of the things that we do Writer/s: Andrew Watt, Charlie Puth, Louis Bell, Ryan Tedder, William Walsh
