Mama, it's so good to be back home again
I'm so proud to see that you are looking well
Yes, I know that I look a little weary
Oh, but Mama, I have been through living hell

You know how much I've always loved him, Mama
But he done things to me I couldn't understand
Why, he made me watch him love another woman
And he tried to make me love another man

Mama, can I be your little girl again?
I need you now even more than I did then
And I need a lot of love and understanding
And a lot of time to get me over him

If I lose my mind, Mama, I wanna be here with you
Have them lock me up and see I have good care
But I just couldn't stand his torture any longer
I was afraid of what I'd do if I stayed there
