Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here 
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here
You didn't have to tell me that you love me so

You didn't have to leave me with that beer in my face 
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here

You didn't have to crucify me like you did 
You didn't have to tell me I was just your kid 
Hey, hey, mama, why'd you treat me mean 
You didn't have say you'd always be by my side 
Why' didn't have to tell me you'd be my blushin' bride 
Hey, hey, mama, why you treat me mean

Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you 
You didn't have to leave me like a total disgrace 
You didn't have to leave me with that beer on my face 
Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you 
But that's alright, I'd be the same way, too 

Oh yeah, yeah, oh baby

You didn't have to crucify me like you did 
You didn't have to tell me I was just your kid 
Hey, hey, mama, what's the matter here 
You didn't have to tell me you would be my own 
You didn't have to tell me, baby, let me go 
Hey, hey, mama, what is wrong with you 
That's alright, I know your sister, too 

What's the matter with you, mama
