about

Recorded Live at The 16th Avenue Cafe in Nashville, TN on August 29, 1997.

We wrote this at Dave's apartment . . . He had the title and some of the ideas . . . I helped structure this piece as we wrote the rest of it.

lyrics

TAKE YOUR MAMA

Your taxi's waitin', your bags are packed
You say you're leavin' and you ain't comin' back
I'm down on my knees - I'm beggin' you
If you're gonna leave me honey, take your mama too

Take your mama
Don't leave her behind
Take your mama
She drives me out of my mind
Take your mama
When you leave, take your mama too

She showed up at our doorstep, suitcase in hand
Wearin' her robe and slippers, and her polyester pants
You said she'd only stay for a week or so
But Baby, that's been eleven months ago

Take your mama
Don't leave her behind
Take your mama
She drives me out of my mind
Take your mama
When you leave, take your mama too

Well she lays around on my couch all day
Drinkin' beer and eatin' up my take home pay
Watchin' her soaps on that old boob tube
I can't even live in my own livin' room

Take your mama
Don't leave her behind
Take your mama
She drives me out of my mind
Take your mama
When you leave, take your mama too
