I Remember Mama - Shirley Caesar

 

I remember Mama,  and the love that she gave
Kneeling by her bed side  I can still hear Mama say,
 "The people are depending on you, Shirley,  don't you let them down"
I remember Mama in a happy way

 

We went to school with holes in our shoes
We didn't have much but the Lord saw us through
Mama kept the family together, together yes she did
I remember Mama in a happy way


She packed our lunch in an old greasy bag 

It might've seemed empty, but it was more than others had
It had a lot of love way down deep inside and
I remember Mama in a happy way


I remember Mama in a happy way
Now Mama is sleeping in the bosom of Jesus Christ 

Somehow I know she's smiling, she's smiling on us right  now
One day I'll see her again, how happy I will be 

And I remember Mama in a happy way

 

My brothers and sisters, they're living far apart
Although my Mama's gone, she's right here in our hearts
We're all gonna pull together and stay in the holy place
I remember Mama in a happy way


I remember Mama in a happy way

I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus. The Jackson five.

I found that girl. The Jackson five.

        Lyrics: Mama, oh Mama, I found that girl;

                   Mama oh Mama I found that girl.

                   Mama, life for me now is a new sensation

                   Just like you said it woud be, with the

                   situation.
