The man is gone
And mama says
She can't live without him
The man is gone
And mama says
There is no life without him

She has no one to stop her tears
A man who heals and calms down her fears
She needs to wake up in her man's arms
And to be loved just like a child
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh

The man is gone
And mama says
That she can't live without him
The man is gone
And mama says
There is no life without him

How can I tell her the way I feel?
I'm afraid she'd be hurt and sink
It pisses me off, it drives me mad
That she lets herself feel so bad
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh

The man is gone
And mama says
That she can't live without him
The man is gone
And mama says
There is no life without him
