I remember the day I called mama on the telephone
I told her mama I'm getting married
I could hear her voice on the other side of the telephone she was smiling
And she asked me a question that I proudly answered
She said son did you take time to know her
I said mama she's the best
But today it hurts me so
To go back to mama and say mama I
'm getting divorced
Oh I'm getting divorced

This choice I made didn't work out the way I thought it would (x2) it hurts me so mama
mama said to me

[Chorus:]
It's not easy to understand it son
But I hope you'll make it (x3)
You'll be happy again

I remember in church
When the preacher read the scriptures
You looked so beautiful and innocent
I did not know that behind that beauty
Lies the true colors that will destroy me in the near future

This choice I made didn't work out the way I thought it would be (x2)
Now I'm hurting

I remember when I held you
By the hand preacher man read the scriptures
Putting words in you mouth

Maybe what the preacher man said was not something that was with you
Now I know what they mean when they say

Beautiful woman is another man's plaything
Oh Lord I'm hurting now

This choice I made didn't work out the way I thought it would
Mama said to me

[Chorus:] (till fade) It's not easy...
