MOMMA, MOMMA Written by Melanie Safka (Carlin Music Corp) From the album BORN TO BE (1968)
Momma, Momma, I fear you reared me wrong Momma, Momma, I fear you reared me wrong 'Cause I pick up my head, can't tell where I belong
Momma, Momma, something's hurting me bad Momma, Momma, something's hurting me bad I have a yearning for something that I never had
Oh, sometimes I feel my life has come and then it's gone Sometimes I feel my life has come and gone I live in this world but I'm only looking on
I can't understand, it's too far over my head I can't understand, it's too far over my head I'm living a life but I'm really dying instead, yeah
Momma, Momma, I fear you reared me wrong Momma, Momma, I fear you reared me wrong 'Cause I lift up my head and I can't tell where I belong Momma, Momma, Momma Momma, something's terribly wrong
