Lyrics below

Want some whiskey in your water?
Sugar in your tea?
What’s all these crazy questions
They are asking me?
This is the craziest party
That could ever be
Don’t turn on the lights
‘Cause I don’t wanna see

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
She said, “That ain’t the way to have fun, son”

Open up the window
Let some air into this room
I think I’m almost choking
From the smell of stale perfume
And the cigarette you’re smoking
‘Bout to scare me half to death
Open up the window
Let me catch my breath!

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
She said “That ain’t the way to have fun, son
That ain’t the way to have fun, son, son, son”

The radio is blasting
Someone’s knocking at the door
I’m looking at my girlfriend
She just passed out on the floor
I’ve seen so many things
I ain’t never seen before
Don’t know what it is
But I don’t wanna see no more

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come (Mama told me she said)
She said “That ain’t the way to have fun, no” (no, no)
“That ain’t the way to have fun, son”

And Mama told me, mama told me
Mana told me, mama told me
Mama told me not to come (Mama told me not to come)
“That ain’t the way to have fun, son”
“That ain’t the way to have fun” (that’s what she said, she said)
“That ain’t the way to have fun, no”
“That ain’t the way to have fun” (Mama told me)

And Mama told me, mama told me
Mama told me, mama told me
She told me not to come (Mama told me not to come)
“That ain’t the way to have fun” (that ain’t the way to have fun)
“That ain’t the way to have fun, son”
“That ain’t the way to have fun” (oh no, no)…

[Spoken:] Maybe I should’ve listened

  1. There’s some great covers on that album 👍
    Tom Jones & James Dean Bradfield’s cover of ‘I’m Left, You’re Right, She’s Gone’ is a particular favourite of mine 🖤 🖤

      1. James Dean Bradfield is the singer / songwriter / guitarist
        in the Welsh rock band Manic Street Preachers – one of my all time favourites.

        The Tom Jones album is called ‘Reload’ if you hadn’t found it already – I reckon there’s a few covers on there you’d like 👍🖤
