  • If mama would've loved the milkman
    Maybe she wouldn't judge me
    If she'd've had a ride in his white van
    Up and down Baker Street
    On a Monday with her hair down and hand about to slide between his knees
    But mama never did love nothin' but daddy and me

    If mama would've smoked her a cigarette
    Maybe she wouldn't judge me
    If she'd've done more than the dishes
    Untied them apron strings
    She'd be sittin' in her sundress on the back porch mixing whiskey and sweet tea
    Mama never did think twice about feelin' this free

    Mama never liked to pick wild flowers
    Drinkin' on a Sunday was a sin
    She might've made it past the water tower
    If she'd've loved the milkman, mmh, mmh

    (Mama)

    If I could be more like mama
    Maybe she wouldn't judge me
    Sometimes I think mama
    Wants to be more like we
    But it's too late 'cause her hair's gray and the years have started showing on her cheeks
    'Cause mama never did have nothin' but daddy and me

    Mama never liked to pick wild flowers
    Drinkin' on a Sunday was a sin
    She might've made it past the water tower
    If she'd've loved the milkman, mmh, mmh

    Mmh, mmh
    Mmh, mmh
