lyrics

What do you do when you love an older man?
Do you give it all you’ve got when he tries to take your hand?
Do you hold on to him close, or try to let him go?

Oh, oh
Momma, won’t you tell me what to do?

When you think of him at night, is it right to want him near?
Wishing for his touch or his whisper in your ear—
When, for every night you’ve wanted he’s had a hundred more?

Oh, oh
Momma, won’t you tell me what to do?

And Momma, how did you know that it was right with Daddy?
Did you ever doubt he’d be the only one to make you happy?
What did you in to make you finally say ‘yes’?
What made you want to wear that not-so-more white dress?

When you can’t help the thought, and he’s always on your mind,
Does it mean that you’re in love, and you’re bound to walk that line?
Or can you learn to love another, forget the way you felt before?

Oh, oh
Momma, won’t you tell me what to do?

And Momma, how did you know that it was right with Daddy?
Did you ever doubt he’d be the only one to make you happy?
What did you in to make you finally say ‘yes’?
What made you want to wear that not-so-more white dress?

Though all the dreams you have for life he‘s lived them all before,
Still you wish he’d say that he‘d start with you once more—
That it doesn’t matter what has passed, just all that is in store,

Oh, oh
Momma, won’t you tell me what to do?

And Momma, how did you know that it was right with Daddy?
Did you ever doubt he’d be the only one to make you happy?
What did you in to make you finally say ‘yes’?
What made you want to wear that not-so-more white dress?

And Momma, how did you know that it was right with Daddy?
Did you ever doubt he’d be the only one to make you happy?
What did you in to make you finally say ‘yes’?
What made you want to wear that not-so-more white dress?
