A Song for Mama

By Boyz II Men

You taught me everything
And everything you've given me
I always keep it inside
You're the driving force in my life, yeah

There isn't anything
Or anyone that I could be
And it just wouldn't feel right
If I didn't have you by my side, oh

You were there for me
To love and care for me
When skies were gray

Whenever I was down
You were always there
To comfort me

And no one else can be
What you have been to me
You will always be

You will always be the girl
In my life, for all times

Mama, mama you know I love you (I love you)
You know I love you
Mama, mama, you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like tears from the stars (Yes it is)
Mama I just want you to know
Lovin' you is like food to my soul
(Yes it is, yes it is, oh yes it is,
yes it is, yes it is, oh)

You're always down for me
Have always been around for me
Even when I was bad
You've shown me right from my wrongs
Yes you did

And you took up for me
When everyone was down on me
You always did understand
You gave me strength to go on

There were so many times
Looking back when I
Was so afraid

And then you'd come to me
And say to me
I could face anything

And no one else can do
What you have done for me
You'll always be, you will always be
The girl in my life

Mama, mama you know I love you
(You know I love you)
You know I love you
Mama, mama, you're the queen of my heart (You are)
Your love is like tears from the stars
(Your love is like tears from the stars)
Mama I just want you to know (Mama I just want you to know)
Lovin' you is like food to my soul

Never gonna go a day without you
Fills me up just thinkin' about you
I'll never go a day without my

Mama, mama you know I love you
(You know, mama, you know I love you)
You know I love you
Mama, mama, you're the queen of my heart
(The queen of my heart)
Your love is like tears from the stars
(See your love, your love is like tears from the stars)
Mama I just want you to know (Mama whoa, my mama, mama)
Lovin' you is like food to my soul
(Loving you is like food to my soul)

Oh yeah, yeah
You are the food to my soul
Yes you are
