‘Bama Said

Mama Said has been a hit for lots  of recording stars over the years from The Shirelles and the Chiffons to Dionne Bromfield and Amy Winehouse. Last night, a version of the song popped nearly whole into my head and I just know it could be a hit for me… If only I could sing….


‘Bama said there’ll be days like this, 
There’ll be days like this ‘Bama said 
(‘Bama said, ‘Bama said) 
‘Bama said there’ll be days like this, 
There’ll be days like this O’Bama said 
(‘Bama said, ‘Bama said) 
I went walking the other day, 
Everything was going fine, 
I met a little boy named Muammar
And then I almost lost my mind 
‘Bama said there’ll be days like this, 
There’ll be days like this ‘Bama said 
(‘Bama said, ‘Bama said) 
‘Bama said there’ll be days like this, 
There’ll be days like this O’Bama said 
My eyes are wide open 
But all that I can see is, 
Fine new jobs  are callin for everyone but-a me 
but I don’t worry cause 
‘Bama said there’ll be days like this, 
There’ll be days like this ‘Bama said 
(‘Bama said, ‘Bama said) 
‘Bama said there’ll be days like this, 
There’ll be days like this O’Bama said 
And then he said healthcare will come to me 
to ease my aches and woes one day, 
then I might find 
I don’t want it any old way, 
so I don’t worry cause 
‘Bama said there’ll be days like this, 
There’ll be days like this ‘Bama said 
(‘Bama said, ‘Bama said) 
‘Bama said there’ll be days like this, 
There’ll be days like this my ‘Bama said 
‘Bama said, ‘Bama said 
Hey! Don’t you worry, 
‘Bama said ‘Bama said 
Hey! Don’t you worry now. 
‘Bama said ‘Bama said, 
Hey! Hey!
