about

This is a song I wrote about my mama. It's a small attempt to capture what she means to me. I heard this track from a collection belonging to super talented producer Big Hub. I told him I had just the right idea for it and that I needed to have it and he blessed me with it. So here we have, "Mama". I hope as many of you enjoy it as possible and feel free to share it. "love you mama".


*shout out also to my dude Marcellus Suber (www.timewarpedstudios.com) for the great artwork

lyrics

Mama


first verse:
"let me take advantage of the proper platform
6th day of August 1949, a queen was born.

to a mother and father, lost her mother at a young age
set stage for a step-mother, she was raised

as second oldest, as she matured the family expanded
dozen siblings, lost a bit, attention she commanded

met too often with negativity, encouragement rarely existed
she graduated high school, in the air force she enlisted

soon after, had her first child, she wanted him to herself so she became distant
to some it seemed wild but

she packed and relocated to California, a Texas girl
became a woman in a different world

she moved in with distant relatives, relationship was building
she would find love again in two other children.

Shortly after, she returned to the lone star state
Family would be raised in Tx, I guess it was fate



(Break)
"Mama, this is a letter to my mama, guess I can call it dear mama, this one is titled Mama"


2nd verse:
I was her first born, so what am I supposed to do
music is my life mama, remember when i told you


besides, she's my very first and my biggest fan
was there when I rocked my first talent show jam


this will be the hardest song that I probably ever did
because what words sum up a mothers love from her first kid?


so here are your flowers while you're still with us to smell em
My grandparents passed before I took the chance to tell them

Now I stand here a grown man married with my own kids
Benefiting in my life because of things you did

Everything I did you supported me through it
whenever I struggled you were there before I knew it

Sitting out in the cold at little league ball games
you gave me and my younger brother almost same names

at times you played the role of mama and dad
I don't think you really understand how big of a job you had.

(Break)
"Mama, this is a letter to my mama, guess I can call it dear mama, this one is titled Mama"


3rd verse:
I sure will. Matter of fact I'm honored to
This, I put my heart into mama, I promise you

You deserve much more than a song
But knowing how much you will appreciate it, this couldn't go wrong

So this is my letter to mama
Minus any drama
I got more love than ppl have for Mrs Obama
Worth more than a figure has with infinite commas
Feel like I needed to tell you this mama so imma

Express it in the best form that I have been gifted with
Blessed with no stress not the norm. Uplifted my spirit


Always kept us clothed well and roof over our heads
Everynight made sure your kids were properly fed

as I wrote this tears shed, as a child I remember thanking God for you at night before I went to bed.


They say there's nothing like a love of a mother
Don't let another moment go by that you don't tell your mother you love her...


Your son.


Love you mama"
