Hey Mama, is it true what they sayThe mother deals with the situation pretty diplomatically though:
that Papa never worked a day in his life
And Mama, some bad talk going around town
saying that Papa had three outside children and another wife
And that ain't right
Hey, talk about Papa doing some store front preaching
Talked about saving souls and all the time leaching
Dealing in debt and stealing in the name of the Lord
Mama just hung her head and saidJust one of many random thoughts provoked by skyfm, "All seventies, all the time" on iTunes radio.
"Papa was a rolling stone, my son
Wherever he laid his hat was his home
(And when he died) All he left us was alone"
