Come To Mama

  • Everybody's got to love each other
    Stop throwin' stones at your sisters and your brothers
    Man, it wasn't that long ago we were all living in the jungle
    So why do we gotta put each other down
    When there's more than enough love to g-g-go around?

    Come to mama
    Tell me who hurt ya
    There's gonna be no future
    If we don't figure this out

    Dude in a lab coat and a man of God
    (Come onto mama, come on, mama)
    Fought over prisms and a forty-day flood
    (Come onto mama, come on, mama)
    Well, I say rainbows did more than they've ever done
    So why do we gotta fight over ideas?
    We're talkin' the same old shit after all of these years

    Come to mama
    Tell me who hurt ya
    There's gonna be no future
    If we don't figure this out
    Oh, come tomorrow
    Who are you gonna follow?
    There's gonna be no future
    If we don't figure this out

    Psychic guru catches minnows in the harbor
    (Come onto mama, come on, mama)
    Everyone tells him he should work a little harder (hey man get to work, catch up)
    (Come onto mama, come on, mama)
    They all tell you that freedom must be bought
    But, baby, he's already caught them
    So why do we gotta tell each other how to live?
    The only prisons that exist are ones we put each other in

    Come to mama
    Tell me who hurt ya
    There's gonna be no future
    If we don't figure this out
    Oh, come tomorrow
    Who are you gonna follow?
    There's gonna be no future
    If we don't figure this out

    Come to mama (come onto me)
    (Come on mama)
    'Cause I wanna be there
    I wanna be there for you
    I wanna be there

    Why do we gotta tell each other how to live?
    The only prisons that exist are ones we put each other in
    Why do we gotta tell each other how to live?
