I was raised on the west side shanty town.
When your back's against the wall, you better get tough,

Good lookin' women, back woods an' moonshine.
Sweet Mama didn't raise no fool,.

But I can judge a man by the look in his eye.
I know the difference 'tween **** an' shiner.
I was born in the sweet Florida sunshine,
Learned more about life on the streets than in the school.

Oh sweet Mama.
Mama was no angel, but she taught me right from wrong.
She taught me how to gamble and how to roll a dice.

Good lookin' women, back woods an' moonshine.
My sweet Mama didn't raise no fool.
I was born in the sweet Florida sunshine,
Learned more about life on the streets than in the school.
Yeeow!
Talkin' about:
(Mama didn't raise no fool.)
(Talkin' about my sweet Mama,
That's my sweet Mama.
(Mama didn't raise no fool.)
