Words and Music by Safford Waters.

I'm a little child, you see, innocent as I can be,
But there are no flies on me -my mamma told me so;
Mamma says I'm just too sweet, from my head down to my feet,
Such a child you seldom meet-my mamma told me so.

Chorus. I
Mamma always gets things straight,
She is strictly up to date;
Ev'rything is true I state,
'Cause mamma told me so.

This big world is all a bluff, fill'd with misery and woe,
Which, I think, is rather tough--my mamma told me so.
If we're good or if we're bad, diff'rent places we will go,
Where quite dill rent times are had-my mamma told me so.-Chorus.

Sometimes I don't say a word, but I make an awful show;
Children should be seen, not heard -my mamma told me so.
This makes her act like a crank, and she fills my soul with woe;
You bet she knows how to spank-and no one told me so.-Chorus,
