About Mama

"Mama" is a song by the British girl group the Spice Girls. It was written by the Spice Girls, Matt Rowe and Richard Stannard, and produced by Rowe and Stannard for the group's debut album Spice, released in November 1996. "Mama" is a pop ballad that features instrumentation from keyboards, a rhythm guitar, a cello, and a violin, and its lyrics deal with the difficulties in relationships between mothers and daughters that appear during their childhood. It was released as a double A-side with "Who Do You Think You Are", and became the official single of the 1997 Comic Relief. Its Big TV! directed music video, featured the group singing to an audience of children and their own mothers. Despite receiving mixed reviews from music critics, "Mama" was commercially successful. Released as the album's fourth single in March 1997, it became their fourth consecutive number-one single in the United Kingdom, which made the Spice Girls the first act in UK chart history to have its first four singles reach number one. It was certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI). The single performed well internationally, reaching the top ten in many European countries and New Zealand, and the top fifteen in Australia.

She used to be my only enemy and never let me be free
Catching me in places that I knew I shouldn't be
Every other day I crossed the line I didn't mean to be so bad
I never thought you would become the friend I never had

Back then I didn't know why
Why you were misunderstood mama
So now I see through your eyes
All that you did was love

Mama I love you
Mama I care
Mama I love you
Mama my friend
You're my friend

I didn't want to hear it then but I'm not ashamed to say it now
Every little thing you said and did was right for me
I had a lot of time to think about, about the way I used to be
Never had a sense of my responsibility

Back then I didn't know why
Why you were misunderstood
So now I see through your eyes
All that you did was love

Mama I love you
Mama I care
Mama I love you
Mama my friend
You're my friend
You're my friend

But now I'm sure I know why (I know why)
Why you were misunderstood
So now I see through your eyes
All I can give you is love (all I can give you is love)

Mama I love you
Mama I care
Mama I love you
Mama my friend

Mama I love you
Mama I care
Mama I love you
Mama my friend

My friend
Mama my love (you're my friend)
Mama my love

Mama I love you
Mama I care
Mama I love you
Mama my friend

Me loving you (me loving you)
You loving me (you loving me)
A love that's true (a love that's true)
And guaranteed (so true)

Me loving you (me loving you)
You loving me (mama I care) (you loving me)
A love that's true (a love that's true)
And guaranteed (so true)

(Mama I love you) me loving you (me loving you)
You loving me (mama I care) (you loving me)
A love that's true (a love that's true)
And guaranteed (so true)

Mama I love you, me loving you (me loving you)
