Mama told me not to come lyrics

Newman had little chart success as an artist in these early years, but Three Dog Night did, and their raucous rendition was the one listeners preferred. "Mama Told Me Not to Come" was included on his second album, 12 Songs, which came out around the same time Three Dog Night issued it.

Mama told me not to come Mama told me not to come She said, "That ain't the way to have fun, son" Open up the window Let some air into this room I think I'm almost choking From the smell of stale perfume And the cigarette you're smoking 'Bout to scare me half to death Open up the window Let me catch my breath! Mama told me not to come Mama told me not to come Mama said, "That ain't no way to have fun" Open up the window, let some air into this room I think I'm almost choking on the smell of stale perfume And that cigarette you're smoking 'bout to scare me half to death Open up the window, let me catch my breath Mama told me not to come Mama told me not to come "That ain't the way to have fun, no" Open up the window, let some air into this room I think I'm almost chokin' from the smell of stale perfume And that cigarette you're smokin' 'bout scare me half to death Open up the window, sucker, let me catch my breath.
