Mama's On a Mission, God's Plan

by Zenobia Carmel, Rex Horan, and Sara Lee


He knew how to hustle, how to move the money ‘round
I’d say “Michael where you been? He’d say “Ma, moving around”
We’d play Roulette together with the strategy he’d found
Three in the morning is the lucky hour.

Let me hear you say it
Let me hear you say it
Mama mama mama!
Mama mama mama!
What you doin’ old lady?
What you doin’ old lady?
Mama’s on a mission!
Mama’s on a mission!

Dreaming of the future, always thinking big
Providing for his family when he got rich
If he ate, you ate, such a giving man
Flowers on birthdays and Valentine’s

Mike, let me hear you say it
Let me hear you say it
Mama mama mama!
Mama mama mama!
What you doin’ old lady?
What you doin’ old lady?
Mama’s on a mission!
Mama’s on a mission!

I had a dream of Michael, he was all dressed in white
With wings of an angel, saying “Mama, it’s alright”
His spirit wrapped around me, his bare feet on the sand
God guides me, and holds my hand

Mike, let me hear you say it
Let me hear you say it
Mama mama mama!
Mama mama mama!
What you doin’ old lady?
What you doin’ old lady?
Mama’s on a mission!
Mama’s on a mission!
