MAMA TOLD ME NOT TO COME

Randy Newman

 

Will you have whiskey with your water


Or sugar with your tea?


What are these crazy questions


That they're asking of me?


This is the wildest party that there ever could be


Oh, don't turn on the light 'cause I don't want to see


Mama told me not to come


Mama told me not to come


Mama said, That ain't no way to  have fun

 

Open up the window, let some air into this room


I think I'm almost choking on the smell of stale perfume


And that cigarette you're smoking

'bout to scare me half to death


Open up the window, let me catch my breath

The radio is blasting, someone's beating on the door


Our hostess is not lasting - she's out on the floor


I seen so many things here I ain't never seen before


I don't know what it is - but I don't wanna see no more



 

Mama told me not to come


Mama told me not to come


Mama said, That ain't no way to have fun
