My baby ease my mind
Makes me feel secure
But nowadays you know
I just can't be too sure

I got a back up mama
And she lives away across town
I got a back up mama
And mama number one is not around

You can't tell about a woman
That can't get by me
So I check in twice a month
Making sure she's on my team

I got a back up mama
She lives away across town
And mama number one is not around

I call it love insurance
I know I'm in goo hands
I don't worry if my baby
Finds another man

Cause I got a back up mama
She lives away across town
I got a back up mama
And mama number one is not around
I keep a back up mama
If mama number one is not around
