The Lyrics

...another "psycho" parody
it was a case of lost temper
i killed a family member...yes, i did
yes, that was the way...that my mama died
they never got a chance to plant her
i got some stuffin' and tried to enhance her
mama keeps on sendin' her views...though her life is through

when mama gets in my head....i'm led

mama's a controllin' crone
i guess that she wears the pants in this home
and though she died...i don't feel like i'm alone

hey, mama, is it true you're dismayed
and caused me to hurt some dame....with a knife ?
and mama...some bad talk from the cops in town
say your son here did three other killings...and he ended lives
and that ain't right
they talk about your boy doin' some secret hole peepin'
talkin' 'bout takin' strolls...and then into rooms, creepin'
dealin' in death...and stabbin' for the sake of you, ma

mama, though she's dead has cred

mama's a controllin' crone
i guess that she wears the pants in this home
and though she died...i don't feel like i'm alone

hey mama...they say sonny took the stiff and stashed her away
told me that i had dumped a woman in a swampy grave
folks say i would slay, murder, kill...to keep you still
hey mama...people sayin' that i...would just slice 'em unblinkin'
dressed up your clothes, like some tranny, they're thinkin'
mama, i'm dependent on you...you're part of me too

though mama's stuffed up with just sockets for eyes, quite dead

mama's a controllin' crone
i guess that she wears the pants in this home
and though she died...i don't feel like i'm alone
