'Bout ten years old, hide and seek
I found me in the closet Ready or not, I stumbled on
And opened up that box of
Yearbooks, letters, black and whites A hundred, maybe more
Next thing I know my brothers and me
Got 'em scattered on the floor (yeah)
 There was one of her, flippin' the bird
Sittin' on a Harley And a few with some hairy hippie dude Turns out his name was Charlie Her hair, her clothes, her drinkin', smokin'
Had us boys confused I'll never forget the day us nosy kids got introduced...

To mama 'fore she was mama
In a string bikini, in Tijuana Won't admit she smoked marijuana
But I saw mama 'fore she was mama

We put that box right where it was
And never said a word
But growin' up got hard just tryin'
Not to picture her
In anything but aprons, dresses Mini-vans and church Oh, and Daddy would have whooped our butts For diggin' up that dirt...

On mama 'fore she was mama
In a string bikini, in Tijuana She won't admit she smoked marijuana
But I saw mama 'fore she was mama

We laugh and hang it over her head Right above her halo
Her face turns red when we bring up
That tie-dyed Winnebago She runs and hides and still denies
That hip-high rose tattoo She burned that box of forget-me-nots
When she found out we knew...
 About mama 'fore she was mama
In a string bikini, in Tijuana Won't admit she smoked marijuana
But that was mama 'fore she was mama

And there's that one down in the Bahamas But that was mama 'fore she was mama
