Mama knows, Mama knows Sometimes I think she's got a window to my soul Mama knows, Mama knows Even when I think it doesn't show Mama knows I wasn't home when Mama passed away I didn't get to say, "I love you" But I've got this feelin' Mama knows, Mama knows Sometimes I think she's got a window to my soul Mama knows, Mama knows Even when I think it doesn't show Mama knows, Mama knows
