    Lyrics

    When Mama said that it was quite alright
    Our kind of people had a bed for the night
    And it was ok
    Mama told us we are 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 on this stuff plenty loads
    New shoes once a year and then
    Out to play ball so we could ruin them

    When mama said that it was okay
    Mama said that it was quite alright
    Our kind of people had a bed for the night
    And it was ok
    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 loving from my mom and dad
    But I don't think they really understood
    When I said that I wanted the deal in Hollywood
    I told them I'll be singing on TV
    The other kids were calling me a wannabe
    The older kids they started bugging me
    But now they all standing right in front of me

    When mama said that it was okay
    Mama said that it was quite alright
    Our kind of people had a bed for the night
    And it was ok
    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 go
    An old friend can give advice
    When new friends only know a half story
    That's why I'm always keep them tight
    And why I'm okay
    ,I said I'm OK
    You know what my mama said
    You know what she told me

    My mama said that it was ok
    Mama said that it was quite alright
    Our kind of people had a bed for the night
    And it was ok
    Mama said 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

    Mama said that it was okay
    Dabdadadabdadad bdaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
    Dabdadabdadadbdadabdaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
    Mama said that it was okay
    Dabdadadabdadad bdaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
    Dabdadabdadadbdadabdaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    When mama said that it was okay
