Lyrics MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING THAT LICKING STICK.
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK.

PEOPLE STANDING,
STANDING IN A TRANCE,
SISTER'S OUT IN THE BACKYARD,
DOING A OUTTA SIGHT DANCE,
COME TELLING ME THE OTHER DAY
SHE DIDN'T WANT TO BE A DRAG,
I DON'T KNOW WHAT SHE'S DOING,
I THINK SHE'S GOT A BRAND NEW BAG.

MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING THAT LICKING STICK.
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK.

JUNIOR DON'T KILL ME
WITH HIS LAZY STROKE,
WON'T TAKE HIS FEET RIGHT OFF THE GROUND.
DOING THE MASHED POTATOES
UNTIL HE BEGINS TO SLIDE,
CALLS HIS SELF DOING THE JAMES BROWN.
SISTER SAYS THE DANCE SHE'S DOING
IS THE LATEST THING,
PEOPLE NOW BEGIN TO TALK,
SHE JUMPED BACK IN THAT SOULFUL STRIDE,
BABY,
SHE'S NOW DOING THE CAMEL WALK.

MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING THAT LICKING STICK.
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK,
MAMA COME HERE QUICK
AND BRING ME THAT LICKING STICK.
