  • Gives her tea and takes her milk and apple pie
    Mama don't cry when a main man is gone and
    Has left her with that sweet ol' "bye and bye"

    Mama couldn't pay the rent
    The price of booze no cheaper
    Lonely nights are often spent
    In Billiard Halls and bar-room brawls

    Mama gets by, but her men find her saying
    You're good, but you ain't like you used to be
    Mama don't cry when it's dues that she's paying
    It's him she's waiting by that door to see

    Turn your light down low, woman

    Mama, Mama, oooh
    Mama, Mama

    Mama still remembers his eyes
    Like a road map of New York city
    She always had forgiven his lies
    She loved that man, and then he ran

    I tell you Mama gets high when a good man in the morning
    Gives her tea and takes her milk and apple pie
    Mama don't cry when a main man is gone and
    Has left her with that sweet ol' "bye and bye"

    Hi Mama, I think I'd better say just one more time
    Bayou-by, bayou-by, bayou-by, bayou-by, bayou-by, bayou-by, bayou-by, bayou-by
    Oh bye bye
