Lucy Pearl was an R&B supergroup formed in 1999, as the brainchild of former Tony! Toni! Toné! member Raphael Saadiq and D'Angelo. However, D'Angelo backed out of the group due to scheduling conflicts. The other members of Lucy Pearl were Dawn Robinson (Of En Vogue) and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (f… more »

I can't, can't stand your mother 
She's just so much in our business 
And I can't really deal with it 
I can't, can't stand your mother 
Try to have you as a friend 
But you've got to understand 

[Raphael]
I used to love when 
Christmas time came around 
But now all I do is frown (frown, frown, frown) 
I can't even talk to you on my own 
Believe it or not (whispher) 
And I can't even use my own damn phone 
That why I can't stand your mama babe 

I can't, can't stand your mother 
She's just so much in our business 
And I can't really deal with it 
I can't, can't stand your mother 
Try to have you as a friend 
But you've got to understand 

[Dawne]
I didn't really want to to go there (go there) 
But your mama's in my head 
In the closet 
In the bedroom 
Saying things that I can't bear 
Telling me how I should live 
Tell me how to raise my kid 
Always want to borrow money 
Got the nerve to act so funny 
You better deal with her 
Or you'll be living with her 
'Cause I, cause I 

I can't, can't stand your mother 
She's just so much in our business 
And I can't really deal with it 
I can't, can't stand your mother 
Try to have you as a friend 
But you've got to understand 

[Raphael]
Girl, your mama's wrong 
Living with her daughter 
When her ass is grown 
Thought we were supposed 
To be alone 
All I want to do is wear 
My own cologne 
Well, well 

[Dawne]
Your mama's just as bad 
Needs to mind her business 
With her nosy ass 
Showing up uninvited 
She ain't go no class 
Complaining, always hating 
About the things we have 
Can't deal with that 

[Repeat] 
I can't, can't stand your mother 
She's just so much in our business 
And I can't really deal with it 
I can't, can't stand your mother 
Try to have you as a friend 
But you've got to understand 

I can't, can't stand your mother 
She's just so much in our business 
And I can't really deal with it 
I can't, can't stand your mother 
Try to have you as a friend 
But you've got to understand 

[Dawne]
I'm through with you 
And your mama too 
Get your walking shoes 
Get to stepping fool 
'Cause I'm through with you 
So, through with you 
And your mama too 
Get your walking shoes 
Get to stepping fool 
'Cause I'm through with you 

I can't, can't stand your mother 
She's just so much in our business 
And I can't really deal with it 
I can't, can't stand your mother 
Try to have you as a friend 
But you've got to understand
