Scissor Sisters Take Your Mama Lyrics

Last updated: 10/20/2013 06:23:28 AM

When you grow up
Livin' like a good boy oughta
And your mama
Takes a shine to her best son
Something different
All the girls they seem to like you
Cause you're handsome
Like to talk and a whole lot of fun

But now your girl's gone a missin'
And your house has got an empty bed
The folks'll wonder 'bout the wedding
They won't listen to a word you said

Gonna take your mama out all night
Yeah we'll show her what it's all about
We'll get her jacked up on some cheap champagne
We'll let the good times all roll out
And if the music ain't good, well it's just too bad
We're gonna sing along no matter what
Because the dancers don't mind at the New Orleans
If you tip 'em and they make a cut

Do it
Take your mama out all night
So she'll have no doubt
That we're doing oh the best we can
We're gonna do it
Take your mama out all night
You can stay up late
'cause baby you're a full grown man

It's a struggle
Livin' like a good boy oughta
In the summer
Watchin' all the girls pass by
When your mama
Heard the way that you'd been talking
I tried to tell you
That all she'd wanna do is cry

Now we end up takin' the long way home
Lookin' overdressed wearin' buckets of stale cologne
It's so hard to see streets on a country road
When your glasses in the garbage
And your Continental's just been towed

[Repeat Chorus x2]

Can`t stop listening to that fantastic song | Reviewer: Jorge from Germany | 10/20/13

First i thought it was a BeeGee`s song, but i know all of them so couldn`t be... also the voice doesn`t sound always like Andy Gibb. However,... this one is one of those songs i will even listen to in heaven (or hell, who knows!?;_))
Something that gives me hope and especially happiness disregarding the most fatal situations in my life. I love it as much as life. It should never be forgotten in the future because it is more or less kind of a hymn for people who never give up and those ones who need support.

Thanks to everybody who "launched" this song into the world of human beings:-)


My boss gave me a cd, this was the first song on it, in 2004 i couldn't stop playing it, so I taught my boytoy to dance to it and it became OUR song, when we hear it he lights up and claims it's his favorite song, he finds me and we do our little dance routine, I have been searching for who does it, tonight I found out. Scissors Sisters ROCK. Now, because of this one little tune, he can dance. thank you so much

Love them | Reviewer: Lindsi Ratliff | 8/15/08

First heard this song when they were on Saturday Night Live in either 05 or 06... LOVED IT and had to download it right away. This song makes me want to dance my ass off. My husband knows all the words now cause I play it constantly.

Great Mashup of this song | Reviewer: Bryce | 11/27/07

This song is great, but it gets even better! Google "No One Takes Your Freedom," it's a mashup song based on Take Your Mama, with bits from the Beatles, Aretha Franklin, and George Michaels. Trust me, it's worth a listen.

AMAZING | Reviewer: BriBri | 9/2/07

We are Scissor Sisters... And so are you | Reviewer: Charmane | 10/21/05

Scissor Sisters rocks, and so does this song of theirs! The beat is catchy, makes you wanna get up off ur seat and dance. It's been a while since music has had good contributors and I think with the entrance of Scissor Sisters, the scene has been given a good shake up! :)
