I was up the road on easy street
Watching everybody stand around and cheat
A man comes up and says
Move along back to the corner where you belong
But mama just wants to barrel house all night long
I hear the city singing like a siren choir
Some fool tried to set this town on fire
TV preacher screams come on along
I feel like Fay Wray face to face with King Kong
But mama just wants to barrel house all night long
Mama just wants to barrel house all night long

Sometimes I wonder what I am I feel like I'm living in a hologram
It doesn't seem to matter what's right or wrong
Everybody's grabbing and coming on strong
But mama just wants to barrel house all night long
Yes she does, mama just wants to barrel house all night long
