The Temptations - Oh Mother Of Mine lyrics


Writers William Stevenson, Otis Williams


Oh, mother...

Oh mother of mine, I've-I've been blind.

The things that you tell me, yeah, I paid, I really

Paid it no mind.

Oh please, oh please forgive me, yes, I know I was wrong.

But now, now I know, yeah, my place, my place is at home.

Can't you see I've been crying now (Oh yes he's been crying)

Almost dying(Uh-huh, almost dying)

I need your advice mama, yeah (He needs your advice)

(He needs your advice)

Oh, mama (Please Mother)

Oh, mama (Please Mother)

Oh, mama (Please Mother)


How much about love, you don't understand?

Yes, you know that you wrong.

Or when you thought you were wrong.

Yes, it was that young girl.

She put you in such a whirl.


Yeah, I said mama don't you worry now, yeah

I guess i had it coming to me anyhow, yes I did.

I am gonna do everything you say,

Hmmm, each and every day...

I'm gonna be man. (Oh yes he's gonna be a man

Yes, I am. Now that I understand. (Now he understands)

Hmmm, I'm not gonna be no fool no more (He's not fool no more).

Yeah because you told me so. (Like, like he was before)

Whoa mama (Pleases mother)

Oh, mama (Please Mother)

Oh, mama (Please Mother)

Come and tell me now.

Oh tell me now.

Hmmm, I'm sorry.

Yes, I am really sorry.

Oh, I should have think of you, yeah.
