look mama lyrics – howard jones

look mama
i love you
but you gotta let me live my life.
look mama
i love you
but you gotta let me live my life.

don’t wrap me up in cotton wool

you cannot treat me like a fool.
anyway if i was
you gotta let me be the one.
o.k.
give me your advice

it’s not my fault if i can’t be wise

show me a person who hasn’t been done.
look mama
i love you
but you gotta let me live my life. . . .

don’t try to stick your rules on me

i wasn’t born as a carbon copy.
i came out of you
but don’t think you own me.
i have my respect for you
i won’t try to change
the things you do. give me a break

let me learn it my way. you think you know more
than me
experience hasn’t set you free.

look mama
i love you
look mama look
look mama look.
look mama
i love you
look mama look
look mama look.

i gotta make my own mistakes

why can’t you treat me like a friend?
look mama
i love you
but you gotta let me live my life. . . .
look mama
i love you
look mama look

look mama look
look mama look.
look mama
i love you
look mama look

look mama look
look mama look.
