You may wonder what's the reason 
For this great big smile; 
Say, I haven't been so happy 
In the longest while! 

Got a big load off my mind, 
Here's the papers, sealed and signed; 
And the judge was nice and kind, 
All through the trial. 

This ends the five-year war, 
I'm sweet Miss Waters once more! 
I can come when I please, I can go when I please, 
I can flit, fly and flutter like the birds in the trees, 

Because I'm no man's mamma now! 
Hey, hey! 
I can say what I like, I can do what I like, 
I'm a gal who is on a matrimonial strike; 

Which means, I'm no man's mamma now! 
I'm screamin', "There, I know how 
A fella feels gettin' out of jail," 
I've got twin beds, 

But I take pleasure in announcin' one's for sale! 
Am I makin' it plain? I will never again 
Drag around another ball and chain! 
I'm through, 

Because, I'm no man's mamma now! 
I can smile, I can wink, I can go take a drink, 
And I don't have to worry what my hubby will think! 
Because, I'm no man's mamma now! 

Get it fixed! 
I can spend if I choose, I can play and sing the blues, 
There's nobody messing with my ones and my twos, 
Because, I'm no man's mamma now! 

You know that there was a time 
I used to think that men were grand, 
But no more for mine, 
I've gone and labeled my apartment 

"No Man's Land!" 
I got rid of my cat, 'cause my cat's name was Pat, 
Won't even have a mailbox in my flat! 
Because, I'm no man's mamma now
