I want to talk about somebody real special tonight (whoa)
Ok, come on
‘Cause I’m so proud of you, let me tell you what I’m about to do (hey mama)

I’m feelin’ take y’all back to them better times
I’m feelin’ talk about my momma if y’all don’t mind (hey mama)

You fix me up something that was good for my soul
