My first BIAB song of 2019! :-)

Done with _ROSES.STY (Roses Fast Acoustic Pop Waltz) BIAB style. My voice I recorded with Audacity, and added 25% reverb.

Hope you enjoy ... as always, all feedback welcome - thanks :-)




Lyrics:

MAMA SAID

When I was young and wet behind the ears
I saw this girl, a beauty as can be
And then I ran to tell the news to mama
While I was jumping up and down with glee.

Mama said: don't fall in love too easy ...
Don't give your heart too quickly, please, my boy
Don't promise her the moon the moment that you see her
Or she will play you like a little toy.

But then I saw her shining like a diamond,
With her blonde hair and eyes of green like jade ...
And all my world I promptly left at her feet
And to her whims her servant myself made.

Mama said: don't fall in love too easy ...
Don't give your heart too quickly, please, my boy
Don't promise her the earth the moment that you see her
Or she will play you like a little toy.

Time has passed now, she's from me long gone ...
She left me here with my heart in two ...
She took my purse, my soul and all I had to give her
And left me feeling broken down and blue.

Mama said: it happens, son, I know,
Some women can drive any man insane ...
And yet I know, were she to pass by once more
I would most likely fall for her again.

Mama said: don't fall in love too easy ...
Don't give your heart too quickly, please, my boy ...
But it's too late, you see, for, since I saw her,
She played me well ... just like a little toy.

Nice work on this - some really nice lyrics on this, and your distinct delivery of them makes them hit hard as well. Lovely choice of backing tracks too.

Great job - thanks for sharing smile

Thanks all! Actually, Greg, there are two ways (I think!) of interpreting the lyrics: one is the one you said (gotta listen to Mama!) :-) The other is that the guy in the song fell foul of an overprotective mother and the girl he liked left him because she sensed that his Mama's advice got into him and that he never gave the relationship a proper, unprejudiced chance. In that sense, the guy's a bit of a Mama's boy, haha.

Either way, thanks for your kind comments - everyone! :-) I'm far from awesome, Ed (though thank you!!!), but one thing I can say for myself is that I do try, no matter what, haha. Cheers! :-)

The vocals really suit what you attempted to do with the song. I'd say it's a job well done. Thanks for sharing.
