Will you have whiskey with your water
Or sugar with your tea?
What are these crazy questions
That they're asking of me?

This is the wildest party there ever could be
Oh, don't turn on the light 'cause I don't want to see

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
Mama said, "That ain't no way to have fun"

Open up the window, let some air into this room
I think I'm almost choking on the smell of stale perfume
And that cigarette you're smoking 'bout to scare me half to death
Open up the window, let me catch my breath

The radio is blasting, someone beatin' on the door
Our hostess is not lastin', she's out on the floor
I seen so many things here I ain't never seen before
I don't know what it is but I don't wanna see no more

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
Mama said, "That ain't no way to have fun"
