(verse/chorus1) 6am, and the kids are on the phone Callin' Mama- Gotta turn off the ringer just to get a little break From Callin' Mama-
Callin' on the landline, Callin' on the cell, Callin' with a brand new drama All your fears are gone When you pick up the phone And call Mama
(verse/chorus2) Jara's on the line; Had a fight with With Mike- It was a good'n. Jamie's late for church Tryin' to make Mom's Banana Puddin'
And I'm somewhere on the road, Just tryin' to git home So I can put on my old pajamas Wish I could get her alone Guess I'll pick up the phone And call Mama

(Verse 3) Mamas everywhere like to hear from their kids, so Call Mama And if Mama ain't happy, then nobody is: Call Mama
She may fuss and moan When you get her on the phone But that's just the "mama" in her You'll get a big ole hug when you Come home for Sunday dinner!
(bridge 2) She can rock your world, Cook your greens, Mend your heart, and sew your jeans. Pick you up when you are down- Hush your mouth! Don't mess around With Mama! Not Mama! That's Mama!
It's plain to see that you're never too old To call Mama Nerves of steel and a Heart of Gold That's Mama Every boy and girl All around this world From Dolly Parton to the Dalai Lama Better pick up the phone Get a dialtone And call Mama
