Lyrics

Mama didn't lie, she didn't lie Mama didn't lie, she didn't lie Here comes that Boy and his friends Making eyes at me again Do they all think that I'm a toy To be played with by every boy Well, they're wrong to think I will be caught by The wink of an eye My mama didn't lie Mama didn't lie, she didn't lie Mama didn't lie, she didn't lie The greatest pastime In this man's world Is playing tricks On every young girl To have one is how They get their kicks But not me because I know their tricks And they're wrong to think I will be caught by The wink of an eye My mama didn't lie Mama didn't lie, she didn't lie Mama didn't lie, she didn't lie I remember what my mama told me She said, girl, stay in your class You got a whole lot of Growing and a learning to do So, girl, don't you go so fast The greatest pastime In this man's world Is playing tricks On every young girl To have one is how They get their kicks But not me because I know their tricks

And they're wrong to think I will be caught by The wink of an eye My mama didn't lie Mama didn't lie, she didn't lie Mama didn't lie, she didn't lie
