Capo 6th fret

Standard (EADGBE)

When you grow up / Livin' like a good boy oughta

And your mama / Takes a shine to her best son

Something different / All the girls they seem to like you

Cause you're handsome / Like to talk and a whole lot of fun

But now your girl's gone a missin'

And your house has got an empty bed

The folks'll wonder 'bout the wedding

They won't listen to a word you said

Gonna take your mama out all night

Yeah we'll show her what it's all about

We'll get her jacked up on some cheap champagne

We'll let the good times all roll out

And if the music ain't good, well it's just too bad

We're gonna sing along no matter what

Because the dancers don't mind at the New Orleans

If you tip 'em and they make a cut

Do it

Take your mama out all night

So she'll have no doubt that we're doing oh the best we can

We're gonna do it

Take your mama out all night

You can stay up late 'cause baby you're a full grown man

etc etc
