Mama I don't ever want to see you cry
If then they knew him
They'd have passed right by
Oh Joseph's a man of many women, feel no way
Oh always remember you are the first of them

So oh Mama
If they could see where we are coming from
The other day
Then they would know just where they belong
If they could see where you're coming from
Just the other day
They would know just where they belong

Let stumbling blocks fall out of your way
Lord know, Lord knows your reward shall be great
They were broken off through their lack of faith
But because of your faith you are still in place
Woe Mama, if they could see where you're coming from
Just the other day
Then they would know just where you are coming from
If they could see where you are coming from
Just the other day
Then they would know just where they belong

Ah my children
Oh Mama
Fret not for me
I know Jah will be there
Eternally

If they could see where we are coming from
Just the other day
Then they would know just where they belong
If they could see where we are coming from
Then they would know just where they belong

Mama I don't ever want to see you cry
Ain't no lie
If then they knew him
They would have passed right by
So many called but you were chosen
And so you will remain outspoken
Oh Mama
If they could see where we are coming from
Just the other day
Then they would know just where they belong

Mama I don't ever want to see you cry
Ain't no lie
If then they knew him
They would have passed right by
So many called but you were chosen
And so you will remain outspoken
Oh Mama
If they could see where we are coming from
Just the other day
Then they would know just where they belong

If they could see where we are coming from
Just the other day
Then they would know just where they belong
Then they would know
Yes they would know
