The Temptations Papa Was a Rolling Stone Lyrics

Last updated: 09/03/2014 05:31:53 PM


It was the third of September
The day I'll always remember, yes I will
'Cause that was the day that my daddy died
I never got a chance to see him
Never heard nothing but bad things about him
Mama, I'm depending on you, to tell me the

truth

And mama just hung her head and said,
Son, papa was a rollin stone...my son 'now
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left me was alone
eh! eh! eh! eh..
Papa was a rollin' stone, my son
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left me was alone

Well, well

Hey mama, is it true what they say
That papa never worked a day in his life


And mama, some bad talk going around town

saying That papa had three outside children and

a new other wife
And that ain't right

Heard some talk about papa doing some store

front preaching
Talking about saving souls and all the time

leeching
Dealing in dirt and stealing in the name of

the Lord

Mama just hung her head and said
Papa was a rollin' stone, my son
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died all he left us was alone
Now listen to me...
papa was a rollin' stone
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died all he left us was alone

Now..now..now...

Uh!

Hey mama, I heard papa called himself a jack

of all trades
Tell me is that what sent Papa to an early

grave
Folk say papa would beg, borrow, steal to

pay his bill
Hey mama, folk say that papa never was much

on thinking
Spent most of his time chasing women and

drinking
Mama, I'm depending on you to tell me the

truth

Mama looked up with a tear in her eye and

said,
Son, papa was a rollin' stone (well, well,

well, well)
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died all he left us was alone
Papa was a rollin' stone
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died all he left us was alone

I said, papa was a rollin' stone
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died all he left us was alone
