  • Get back, Mamma
    You've been holdin' me down too long
    You're always sayin' I can't make it alone
    Music taking up all of my day
    Make or break, but I'll do it my way
    Get back, Mamma
    You've been holdin' me down too long

    Good-bye, Mamma
    I appreciate your lovin' care
    Packed my bags and I'm off to I don't know where
    You may be right and you may be wrong
    I'm still young and I'm going strong now
    Get back, Mamma
    You've been holding me down too long
    Get back, Mamma
    You've been holdin' me down too long
    You're always sayin' I can't make it alone
    You may be right and you may be wrong
    I'm still young and I'm going strong now
    Get back, Mamma
    You've been holding me down too long Writer/s: Suzi Quatro
