(Does your mama know about me?

Does she know just what I am?

Will she turn her back on me)

Or accept me as a man?



And what about your Dad?

Did you think of what he'll say?

Will he be understanding

Or does he think the usual way?



Maybe I shouldn't worry

But I've been through this before

And I'd like to get things straight

Before I'm knocking on your door



(Does your mama know about me?

Does she know just what I am?

If she says forget about me)

Do you think you'd understand?



And what about your friends?

Do you care what people say?

Will you accept the burdons

I know will surely come your way?



Maybe I shouldn't worry

But I've been through this before

And I'd like to get things straight

Before I'm knocking on your door



(Does your mama know about me?

Does she know just what I am?

Will she turn her back on me?)

Or accept me as a man?



We've got to stand tall

Can't stumble or crawl

We've got to be strong

For love that's so right

Can't be wrong

And every day I see it grow

And I don't want to let it go

I guess that's why I gotta know



(Does your mama know about me?

Does your mama know about me?

Does your mama know about me?

Does your mama know about me?

Does your mama know about me?)
