Ben Harper Mama's Got A Girlfriend Lyrics

Last updated: 07/05/2011 11:00:00 AM

Papa, he left home today and said he ain't comin' back again.
Said he ain't gonna be nobody's second best, just cause mama's got a special kind of friend.
Papa, he left home today, said he ain't comin' back no more.
Said he ain't gonna take no damn back seat.
And how could mama do him so low.

But mama's got a girlfriend now, boy!
Mama's got a girlfriend now.
Mama's got a girlfriend.
Mama's got a true friend.
Mama's got a girlfriend now.

You see Mama don't watch your damn football.
And your beer drinkin' just won't do.
You're just stayin' out late.
And you're preachin' the hate.
And you never have been true.
You see, Mama, she want her somebody who will let her be herself.
So she's leavin' you and your stinky damn ways, cause she's found somebody else.

And Mama's got a girlfriend now boy.
Mama's got a girlfriend now.
Mama's got a girlfriend.
Mama's found a true friend.
Mama's got a girlfriend now.

Papa he left home today.
He was wavin' his hands and cryin'.
You could tell by the sound and the tone in his voice that his heart was slowly dyin'.
But mama said: "Boy if I ever catch you 'round here again, you ain't never gonna have nobody else not a woman or a man".

Yeah! Mama's got a girlfriend now boy.
Mama's got a girlfriend now.
Mama's got a girlfriend.
Mama's found a true friend.
Mama's got a girlfriend now.
Mama's got a girlfriend now, boy!
Mama's got a girlfriend now.
Mama's got a girlfriend.
Mama's found a true friend.
Mama's got a girlfriend now.
