    Lyrics

    Sunday morning I heard mama pray
    From a room I heard her say
    "Good Lord help my son find his way"
    "Lord he's just a country boy"
    "Thinks the world is great big toy"
    There ain't nothin' he can't do
    If he wants to

    He got himself a part time job
    Saved his money and bought him a guitar
    Played from sun up to sundown, hey, hey, hey

    (He don't wanna) Go to schoool no more
    Don't do his household chores
    But I'm a hit, the neighbors biggest sound, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    (He's) Got some big ideas
    He's talkin' 'bout leavin' here
    Going to a place called New York City
    And here's what he told me

    Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no
    Let me go
    Mama, (Yeah) I gotta brand new thing don't say no
    Let me go

    Mama said, "My son, my son you're only sixteen"
    "I know being a star is your dream"
    "But I think it's time you stop all this foolin'"
    "And get to your schoolin'"

    Living in a state of frustration
    Stop preachin' that education
    'Cause this job is gonna make me a king
    Above everything else, listen
    Donned from head to toe
    First class everywhere we go
    Just give me a chance to do my thing

    Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no
    Let me go
    Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no
    Let me go
    I can see it now

    Champagne and caviar
    Black limousine, chauffeured car
    Trips all around the world
    And I'll have my choice of any girl
    People lined up as far as you can see
    Standing in line just to see me
    Money stacking up to the sky
    There ain't nothin' that we can't buy
    Have a little faith in me
    Mama I'm sure that you will see that your son and his guitar
    Are gonna go far

    Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no
    Let me go
    Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no
    Let me go
    Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no
    Let me go
