Mama Don't Like It
(When I Come In Late)
 

Tuesday night, it's me and the boys
Havin' some fun and makin' some noise
Shooting the dice and just foolin' around
Till the police came and took us all downtown

the sergeant said "I'll give you the news
You're gonna spend the night in the calaboose"
I said "We need to get one thing straight,
Mama don't like it when I come in late".

Mama don't like it when I come in late
Floor boards creaking underneath my weight
It don't matter 'bout my alibi
She's got a pan in her fist and blood in her eye

Our kind of love can't be undone
As long as I'm home and in bed by one
A night on the town can really be great
But Mama don't like it when I come in late

Out in the woods with a moonshine still
Running corn liquor  in a coupe D'ville
My tank's topped off, and I'm running behind
Gotta get the shine to the man on time

Cruisin' along thinking I'm in the clear
Till I see the flashing lights in the rearview mirror
In case you didn't hear, I'll reiterate
Mama don't like it when I come in late

Mama don't like it when I come in late
Floor boards creaking underneath my weight
It don't matter 'bout my alibi
She's got a pan in her fist and blood in her eye

Our kind of love can't be undone
As long as I'm home and in bed by one
She rules the roost and there's no debate
Mama don't like it when I come in late
