Marlon Asher – Mama Say Lyrics

Ehhh eh eh eh
Uhn uhn uhn uhnn

It’s Marlon Asher

Verse 1
I’ve been working hard to make ends meet but I’ve seem to lost my way
I wake up in the morning and I’m in total disarray
You see, I’ve got responsibilities and I’ve got my bills to pay
It’s hard but life’s unfair like mama say “son you be prepared”
She say the meek will inherit the earth so keep a level head
Be true to the things that you’re doing my son you gotta make and lay on your bed

She told me…

Chorus
People will not want to see you rise you better open your eyes
Life ain’t no bed of rose and you’re living in no paradise
And if you really want to live a full life make a sacrifice
Work hard and you would survive

Verse 2
There’s a time and place for everything. Time — it never waits
Make hay while the sun shines if you want to put food on your plate
Coz there’s a price for the life that you live. You better do good and think positive

Lend a helping hand to the underprivileged
Watch all your friends and don’t burn all your bridges

Chorus
People will not want to see you rise you better open your eyes
Life ain’t no bed of rose and you’re living in no paradise
And if you really want to live a full life make a sacrifice
Work hard and you would survive

Verse 3
If you’re feeling that you lost, just let the father guard your way
In everything you do my child just do not forget to pray
The obstacles and stumbling blocks that you’ll counter day to day
So I pray the Father Lord will bless you endlessly

She told me…

Chorus
People will not want to see you rise you better open your eyes
Life ain’t no bed of rose and you’re living in no paradise
And if you really want to live a full life make a sacrifice
Work hard and you would survive
