Song of the week 39 (Mat Kearney – Hey Mama)

It’s raining here in Durban (South Africa)

If the weather puts a damper on your mood (pun intended)… then this song will pick you up indeed.

No doubt you will be tapping your desk, stamping your feet or clapping your hands along…

 

Check it out here:

A feel good song.  I have followed this guy’s music for about three albums now,  Really enjoying his vibe and his message to the world:

Hey Mama

She don’t know what she wants to be
With all the pictures in the magazines
Holding hands when she’s mad at me
’cause she don’t wanna go, don’t wanna go

I met her at anthropology
Purple boots and her golden dreams
Standing there like a Tennessee queen
Singing don’t look at me, don’t look at me

Singing oh oh
won’t you help me sing this song
Singing ee ee ee
She don’t ever want to go to sleep

Singing hey mama, don’t want no drama
Just a kiss before I leave
Hey lady, don’t say maybe
You’re the one that I can believe

Hey lover, don’t want no other
finger for my ring

Hey mama, hey hey mama
Hey mama, hey hey mama
Hey mama, hey hey mama
Hey mama, hey hey mama

Oh oh
Ooh oh oh oh
Ooh oh oh oh

I can see it in her Cherokee eyes
Those baby browns and the golden thighs
What you doing for the rest of your life?
Cause you don’t want, don’t wanna go

Singing oh oh
won’t you help me sing this song
Singing ee ee ee
She playing like a mystery

Singing hey mama, don’t want no drama
Just a kiss before I leave
Hey lady, don’t say maybe
You’re the one that I can believe

Hey lover, don’t want no other
finger for my ring

Hey mama, hey hey mama
Hey mama, hey hey mama
Hey mama, hey hey mama
Hey mama, hey hey mama

Oh oh
Ooh oh oh oh
Ooh oh oh oh

Couldn’t be more opposite
I’m hard to please and you’re hard to get
You’re Mississippi and I’m Oregon
You’re sun tanned and I’m porcelain skinned.

Singing hey mama, don’t want no drama
Just a kiss before I leave
Hey lady, don’t say maybe
You’re the one that I can believe

Hey lover, don’t want no other
finger for my ring

Hey mama, hey hey mama
Hey mama, hey hey mama
Hey mama, hey hey mama
Hey mama, hey hey mama
