Something I Ate
Mama, mama, come to me quick
Mama, I feel so dog gone sick
Won’t you call up the doctor please, make him come on by
Bring me some medicine, Oh I don’t want to die.
Mama, mama, come to my bed
Mamma, need you to cool my head
I don’t recall what happened here, know I came in late
I ain’t got a number(?), must be something that I ate.
Mama, mama, I want to get this straight
Mama, I only hope it ain’t too late
I try to be given(?), don’t know what to say
Need to see the river run, before I pass away.
Mama, mama , please do me one thing more
Mama, swear I ain’t felt like this before
Won’t you run to the liquor store, bring me some wine
Feel kind of tough being sober while I’m dying.
I need a little drink, mamma,
And I won’t be pleased before
I feel a little better now, guess maybe it ain’t time.
Come to me, mamma, I got something on my mind
I got something on my mind.
