Took the ribbon from my hair
And I'm letting it all hang down
So, if you're lookin' for the same old me
Gotta tell you that she's left town
Don't try to call my number, baby
You're gonna get no reply
'Cause suddenly I'm changin'
I'm finally rearrangin'

In this day of liberation
I'm lookin' to find my share
What's the use of being patient?
You ain't goin' nowhere
I got my own two-step together
And I want the first slow dance with you
I just saw Venus risin'
Guess I'm realisin'

I ain't mama's little girl no more
And baby, you're the first to know
I ain't mama's little girl no more
I took a little time to grow
It's gonna be worth waiting
The anticipating
I'm not mama's little baby no more

Well, I've been everyone's best friend
Someone they could tell their troubles to
How come they never noticed me
And the pain that I was going through?
I've seen the lonely side of living
I never want to go back there again
The sad old me is dyin'
Tonight there is no denyin'

I ain't mama's little girl no more
And baby, you're the first to know
I ain't mama's little girl no more
I took a little time to grow
It's gonna be worth waiting
The anticipating
I'm not mama's little baby no more

I ain't mama's little girl no more
And baby, you're the first, the first to know
I ain't mama's little girl no more
I took a little time, a time to grow
It's gonna be worth the waiting
The anticipating
I'm not mama's little baby no more, no more

I ain't mama's little girl no more
And baby, you're the first, the first to know
I said I ain't mama's little girl no, no more
I took a little time, a time to grow
It's gonna be worth the waiting
The anticipating
I'm not mama's little baby no more, no more
