a painter I am told
she's getting out of real estate
for the art scene down in old Soho
Art scene down in old Soho

Mama's got a lover
he owns a gallery
she says he likes collages but
the money's in graffiti
Money's in graffiti

Mama's got a lover
I met him yesterday
she says she hopes I like him
maybe I'll send him a card on father's day
Father's day

Mama's got a lover
they're backing a film
it's about a working mother
who gives birth to black and white Siamese twins
Black and white Siamese twins

Mama's got a lover
he's got something to say
he says he's into dirt and rot
The essence of "urban decay"
"Urban decay"

Mama's got a lover
we met yesterday
she says she hopes I like him
I'll send him a card on father's day
On father's day

Mama's got a lover
I met him yesterday
she's starting a new chapter
I wish she was on the last page
The last page

Mama's got a lover
we met yesterday
she says she hopes I like him
I'll send him a card on father's day
Father's day

Mama's got a lover (Mama's got a lover)
mama's got a lover (Mama's got a lover), oh
Mama's got a lover (Mama's got a lover)
my mama's got a lover (Mama's got a lover)
(Mama's got a lover)
(mama's got a lover)
(Mama's got a lover)
(mama's got a lover)
(Mama's got a lover)
(mama's got a lover)
(Mama's got a lover)
(mama's got a lover)
(Mama's got a lover)
(mama's got a lover)
(Mama's got a lover)
(mama's got a lover)
