Lyrics BABY IS THE ONLY NAME
I'VE CALLED HER,
EVER SINCE THE DAY
SHE CAME MY WAY
AND TOLD ME
SHE WAS LONELY
WHEN I ASKED HER WHY,
BABY CRIED.

SHE TOLD ME
THAT NO BOY
EVER HELD HER HAND,
SIXTEEN,
AND SHE COULDN'T
UNDERSTAND
WHY NO ONE
PAID ATTENTION,
YEAH,
WHEN I HELD HER HAND,
BABY CRIED.

THEN SHE TOLD ME
THAT NO BOY
EVER HELD HER TIGHT,
ONLY THE ONES
IN HER DREAMS
AT NIGHT.
THEN RUSHING,
SHE STARTED RUNNING,
YEAH,
I CAUGHT HER,
I HELD HER TIGHT,
BABY CRIED.

AND AS I HELD HER
TENDERLY,
THE STRANGEST FEELING
CAME OVER ME,
AND IT TOLD ME
I TOO WAS LONELY
THEN I KISSED HER LIPS,
BABY CRIED.

AND I CRIED,
YEAH,
BABY CRIED,
AND I CRIED,
BABY CRIED.

Lyrics BRING BACK THE TIME
WHEN YOU WERE MINE,
CHILDREN WERE LAUGHING THEN
I COULD HEAR
A BLUEBIRD SING.
BRING BACK THE TIME
I WAS FINDING YOU
AND ALL YOUR BEAUTY
AND ALL YOUR CHARMS
AND THE WARMTH
OF YOUR ARMS,
OH, THE WARMTH
OF YOUR ARMS.

BRING BACK THE TIME
WHEN YOU WERE MINE
AND WE WERE WALKING
BY THE SHORE,
FOREVER MORE.
THE WORLD WAS OURS
SUNSHINE,
FLOWERS,
AND YOU.

BRING BACK THE TIME
THAT SUMMER DAY
YOU SAID
YOU'D MARRY ME,
NOW I CRY.
BUT CAN'T YOU SEE
THOSE TEARDROPS
IN MY EYES
AREN'T JUST FOR YOU?
THEY'RE FOR ALL
WE PLANNED
OUR WHOLE LIVES THROUGH
THINGS WE'LL NEVER DO,
THINGS WE'LL NEVER DO.

BRING BACK THE TIME
WHEN YOU WERE MINE,
I WISH I COULD
BRING BACK THE TIME.

Lyrics WHO'S THE ONE
WHO TIED YOUR SHOES
WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG,
AND KNEW
JUST WHEN TO COME
AND SEE
WHAT YOU HAD DONE?
MAMA,
OH, MAMA.
AND WHO'S THE ONE
WHO PATCHED YOUR EYE
AND TOLD YOU
NOT TO CRY
BECAUSE HE WAS TO BIG
FOR YOU TO TRY?
MAMA,
MAMA.
AND WHO'S THE ONE
YOU DIDN'T NEED
TO PLEAD
TO GIVE HER TIME
TO THE LITTLE LEAGUE?
IT WAS MAMA,
OH MAMA.
AND WHO'S THE ONE
WHO GAVE HER SHOULDER
WHEN YOU TOLD HER
YOUR FIRST LOVE WAS OVER,
SHE'D MET SOMEONE OLDER?
MAMA,
MAMA.

IT WAS MAMA,
MY MAMA,
MAMA,
OH MAMA.

WHO'S THE ONE
WHO TAUGHT YOU
OBLIGATION
THEN DEDICATION,
RESULTS,
GRADUATION?
MAMA,
MAMA.
AND WHO'S THE ONE
WHO'S SHOWN
THE FRIENDS
YOU'VE KNOWN
A HOME
AWAY FROM HOME
WHEN THEY WERE TIRED
AND ALL ALONE?
MAMA,
MAMA.
AND WHO'S THE ONE
WHO HELD A TEAR INSIDE
WHEN YOU INTRODUCED
YOUR FUTURE BRIDE?
AND WHO'S THE ONE
THAT DIDN'T MEAN TO CRY
AS YOU WALKED DOWN THE AISLE,
THROUGH TEARS ,
YOU SAW HER SMILE?
MAMA,
OH MAMA,
MAMA,
MY MAMA,

IT WAS MAMA,
MY MAMA.
