Mama Said

The Shirelles

Mama said there'll be days like this
There'll be days like this, mama said
(Mama said, mama said)
Mama said there'll be days like this
There'll be days like this, my mama said
(Mama said, mama said)

I went walking the other day
And everything was going fine
I met a little boy named Billy Joe
And then almost lost my mind

Mama said there'll be days like this
There'll be days like this, my mama said
(Mama said, mama said)
Mama said there'll be days like this
There'll be days like this, my mama said

My eyes were wide open
But all that I can see is
Chapel bells are calling
For everyone but a me
But I don't worry 'cause

Mama said there'll be days like this
There'll be days like this, my mama said
(Mama said, mama said)
Mama said there'll be days like this
There'll be days like this, my mama said

And then she said someone will look at me
Like I'm looking at you, one day
Then I might find I don't want it to go away
So I don't worry 'cause

Mama said there'll be days like this
There'll be days like this, my mama said
(Mama said, mama said)
Mama said there'll be days like this
There'll be days like this, my mama said

(Mama said, mama said, hey, hey) don't you worry
(Mama said, mama said, hey, hey) don't you worry now
(Mama said, mama said, hey, hey)
Mama said there'll be days like this

(Mama said, mama said, hey, hey)
There'll be days like this, mama said
(Mama said, mama said, hey, hey)
Mama said there'll be days like this

(Mama said, mama said, hey, hey)
There'll be-a days like this, my mama said
(Mama said, mama said, hey, hey)
Mama said there'll be days like this
