my mammy lyrics – al jolson

everything seems lovely
when you start to roam;
the birds are singin’, the day that you stray,
but later, when you are further away,
things won’t seem so lovely
when you’re far from home;
here’s what you’ll keep saying
when you’re allalone:
mammy,
mammy,
the sun shines east, the sun shines west,
but i know where the sun shines best–
mammy,
mammy,
my heartstrings are tangled around alabammy.
i’m, i’m a comin,
sorry that i made you wait.
i’m, i’m a comin,
i hope and trust that i’m not late,
mammy,
i’m talkin about my mammy,
i’d walk a million miles
for one of your smiles,
my mammy! my mammy! ah ah ah…
(spoken) mammy…
my little mammy.
the sun shines east– the sun shines west–
bit i know where– the sun shines best!
it’s on my mammy i’m talkin’ about, n*body else’s!
(sung) my little mammy,
my heartstrings are tangled around alabammy.
(spoken) mammy– mammy, i’m comin’–
oh i hope i didn’t make you wait!
mammy– mammy, i’m comin’!
oh god, i hope i’m not late!
look at me, mammy!ah ah ah, don’t you know me?
i’t’s your little baby!
(sung) i’d walk a million miles
for one of your smiles,
my mammy!
