  • When mama said that is was okay
    Mama said that is was quite alright
    Our kind of people had a bed for the night
    And it was okay
    Mama told us that we were good kids
    And daddy told us never listen to the ones
    Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
    'Cause we were good kids

    Remember asking both my mom and dad
    Why we never travelled to exotic lands
    We only ever really visit' friends
    Nothing to tell when the summer ends
    We never really went buying clothes
    Folks were passing the stuff in plenty loads
    New shoes once a year and then
    Out to play ball so we could ruin them

    When mama said that is was okay
    Mama said that it was quite alright
    Our kind of people had a bed for the night
    And it was okay
    Mama told us we were good kids
    And daddy told us never listen to the ones
    Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
    'Cause we were good kids

    Don't get me wrong I didn't have it bad
    I got enough lovin' from my mom and dad
    But I don't think they really understood
    When I said that I wanted to deal in Hollywood
    I told I might be singing on TV
    The other kids were calling me a wannabe
    The older kids they started bugging me

    But now they're all standing right in front of me (ha ha)
    Mama said that is was okay
    Mama said that it was quite alright
    Our kind of people had a bed for the night
    And it was okay
    Mama told us we were good kids
    And daddy told us never listen to the ones
    Pointing nasty fingers and making fun

    'Cause we were good kids
    I know which place I'm from
    I know my home
    When I'm in doubt and struggling
    That's where I'll go
    And old friend can give advice
    When new friends only know the half story
    That's why I always keep them tight
    And why I'm okay
    I said I'm okay
    You know what my mama said?

    You know what she told me?
    Mama said that is was okay
    Mama said that it was quite alright
    Our kind of people had a bed for the night
    And it was okay
    Mama told us that we were good kids
    And daddy told us never listen to the ones
    Pointing nasty fingers and making fun

    'Cause we were good kids
    My mama said that is was okay
    Babada baba
    Babada baba
    Babada baba
    My mama said that is was okay
    Babada baba
    Babada baba
    Babada baba
    My mama said that is was okay Writer/s: Christopher Brown, Martin Charnin, Lukas Forchhammer, Stefan Forrest, Morten Ristorp Jensen, Morten Pilegaard, Charles Strouse
