When You're Good to Mama - Marcia Lewis/David Warren-Gibson

And now Ladies and Gentlemen

The keeper of the keys

The countess of the clink

The mistress of murderers row

Matron Mama Morton


Ask any of the chickies in my pen

They'll tell you I'm the biggest mother hen

I love them all and all of them love me


Because the system works

The system called reciprocity


Got a little motto

Always sees me through

When you're good to Mama Mama's good to you


There's a lot of favors I'm prepared to do

You do one for Mama she'll do one for you


They say that life is tit for tat

And that's the way I live

So I deserve a lot of tat

For what I've got to give

Don't you know that this hand

Washes that one too

When you're good to Mama Mama's good to you


If you want my gravy

Pepper my Ragu

Spice it up for mama

She'll get hot for you


When they pass that basket

Folks contribute too

You put in for Mama

She'll put out for you


The folks at top the ladder

Are the ones the world adores

So boost me up my ladder kid

And I'll boost you up yours

Let's all stroke together

Like the Princeton crew

When your stroking Mama Mama's stroking you


So what's the one conclusion


I can bring this number to


When you're good to Mama Mamas good to you
