Having conversations with mama, man my life is a mess Ain't been returning the texts, so she been reading the press She got Google Alerts, them shits go straight to her phone She worry 'bout me from home, you know she raised me alone She said, "I heard you back with you know who I told her, "Girl, I'm always back with you know who" And she like, "Who are we kidding You're twenty-seven, you just being you You're your father's child, man thank God you got some me in you" At least I always, at least I always see it through At least I'm always being true to what you taught me Retired teacher but your words still got me evolving Never get sloppy drunk, but alcohol is problem solving And look I hate it when you hate on all my girlfriends And assistants always convinced that there's always someone better Like that girl from that gym who trains you I know you wanna arrange it, you told me she's free Thursday And I'm sure that she's a angel but she don't want this life The timing ain't right Maybe one day but even one day with us is a time of a life We do things that people pay to document You got the sweetest heart but I'm not here to give out compliments, or boost nobody confidence mama I got no friends in this mama I don't pretend with this mama I'on joke with this mama I pull the knife out my back and cut they throat with it mama I'm Game of Thrones with it mama I'm Home Alone with it mama I'm t- I really hate using this tone with you mama I really hate getting aggressive on this phone with you mama I really hate wasting your time to check a clone or two mama It's just they cloning me mama Them niggas wannabes mama It's like, I'm the one they wanna be mama I just- I- I can't be out here being vulnerable mama I mean I kill em every time they do a song with me mama I sing a hook they sing along with me mama What more they want from me mama? Yeah, this is a crazy life But you and the six raised me right "Don't ever take advice," that was great advice You and the six raised me right, that shit saved my life
Having conversations with mama, we start talkin' 'bout dad You know he dropping a single, he saying this is his window That nigga still wearing linen, that nigga still in the club Call him after we get off the phone and show him some love That nigga Memphis for real, girl he love you to death He made mistakes throughout his life that he still doesn't accept But he just want our forgiveness, and fuck it, look how we living I'm content with this story, who are we not to forgive him? At least I been to a prison, at least I know what it's like I used to rap on the phone, one of his friends doing life And now I got me a Grammy, that could be part of the reason Let's just call this shit even, we got some things to believe in Do you remember back to Weston Road, Scarlett Road? Hangin' with Aaron Bell and Reny shit could've gone south for me, he looked out for me ma He never let me do drugs He let me shoot a gun one summer but out there everyone does He made me listen to his music, old music, soul music Shit that can only be created if you go through it I used to get teased for being black, and now I'm here and I'm not black enough 'Cause I'm not acting tough or making stories up 'bout where I'm actually from But I just roll with it mama, rolling stone with it mama Gotta be careful around rolling stones or anyone that's tryna throw stones at me mama I'm not condoning it mama They will not tear nothing down I built this home for you mama Know I don't call enough mama I just been working with so little time for personal mama Hard labor let me pay the price You and the six raised me right that shit saved my life

"Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen was the song of the summer in 2012 and a major meme. It got some help from her fellow Canadian Justin Bieber, who tweeted that it was "possibly the catchiest song I've ever heard."
