When you grow up 
Livin' like a good boy oughta 
And your mama 
Takes a shine to her best son 
Something different 
All the girls they seem to like you 
Cause you're handsome 
Like to talk and a whole lot of fun 

But now your girl's gone a missin' 
And your house has got an empty bed 
The folks'll wonder 'bout the wedding 
They won't listen to a word you said 

Gonna take your mama out all night 
Yeah we'll show her what it's all about 
We'll get her jacked up on some cheap champagne 
We'll let the good times all roll out 
And if the music ain't good, well it's just too bad 
We're gonna sing along no matter what 
Because the dancers don't mind at the New Orleans 
If you tip 'em and they make a cut 

Do it 
Take your mama out all night 
So she'll have no doubt 
That we're doing oh the best we can 
We're gonna do it 
Take your mama out all night 
You can stay up late 
'cause baby you're a full grown man 

It's a struggle 
Livin' like a good boy oughta 
In the summer 
Watchin' all the girls pass by 
When your mama 
Heard the way that you'd been talking 
I tried to tell you 
That all she'd wanna do is cry 

Now we end up takin' the long way home 
Lookin' overdressed wearin' buckets of stale cologne 
It's so hard to see streets on a country road 
When your glasses in the garbage 
And your Continental's just been towed 

[Repeat Chorus x2]
