Mama Told Me

Mama Told Me Lyrics Big Boi feat. Kelly Rowland

Album: Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors


Big Boi

[Verse 1: Big Boi]
As the world shakes, unharmed
Warm, calm in the middle of the storm, bomb
Flow tsunami, ring the alarm
Big Boi, punanis, come and get some
Wisdom, like your back teeth
Or get the fuck on, like some bad cheese
Negative energy not tolerated
You’re all about the dollar
And I’mma tolerate it
Free falling, Tom Petty, heart breaker
Living legend, rap scholar, Art Major
Because I make major art
Like Beethoven, Van Gogh or Mozart, so don’t start
Around these parts we reign
Supreme, to stay Krispy Kreme clean
Blue jeans, Jordans
Number three, that’s important!

[Hook: Kelly Rowland]
Be careful how you play your cards
That’s what momma told me
Be true to self and you’ll go far
That’s what momma told me
Try not to break too many hearts
That’s what momma told me
I always knew I’d be a star
That’s what momma told me

[Verse 2: Big Boi]
Momma used to say take your time
Well I’m a pickpocket when I design rhymes
Every little step I take, like Bob Brown
It’s so profound, that when I throw those nouns
We gon’ get low, low, down, until we get back up, boy
Everything gravy, potatoes mashed up
You know I keep a full plate
And a full tank of hot ones
Throw away bitter eighths
But eveything’s straight, Lee, sheeit
I got everything I can’t need, me
Boy, I’m everything you can’t see
Like three blind mice on the chase for some great cheese
And cheddar man say he got me great preeze
Say he serve me and my nigga three Gs
Fatigues, Jordans
Number five, these niggas boring


[Verse 3: Kelly Rowland]
‘Cause I travel like a rocket, I do
Mind a riddle every second for you
I swing, on the edge of the lightning, yeah
I ain’t never, can’t stop
Just floating, won’t drop
I slip, I slide, back up, the ride
I’m skipping every mountain top
I’m reaching for the highest sky


That’s what mama told me…
