Artist/Band: Teena Marie
Lyrics for Song: Ask Your Momma
Lyrics for Album: Robbery [1983]



Society

Who's to say who loves who

And on the colors of love, are we to be schooled?

Society

Our minds, bodies, and souls will meet tolerance

Society

Put an end to ignorance



Ask your momma can she feel it

Does she know about my love

Does she know you got my heart in your hand



Ask your momma will she cry when she sees

This 14k band of gold, oh, baby

Wonder will she say what will I tell my friends



Society's child

Some people think I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth

That isn't right, that isn't right, uh, uh



I had dreams of grandeur

And I was labeled like Campbell soup

Baby, all I wanted to do was sing to you and love you true



I see the looks down their noses

I hear shots in the dark

We sleep on no bed of roses, tug of wars on our hearts, hey



We think we're the perfect blend

But they can't see beyond the skin, whoa



Ask your momma does she remember

The bible says about equals, whoa

Or is it this different when it hits this close to your home



Ask your momma will the children suffer

Or will they hate us for our dreams, oh, baby

I wonder will she say what will I tell my friends



Society speaking, some of my best friends are different shades

It's a shame, it's a crime

They blow your mind, time after time, baby



I had pretty visions and I was labeled and I was robbed

Baby, all I wanted to do

Was sing to you and love you true



I see the looks down their noses

I hear shots in the dark

We sleep on no bed of roses, tug of wars on our hearts, hey



We think we're the perfect blend

But they can't see beyond the skin, whoa



Ask your momma can she feel it

Does she know about my love, oh, oh

Does she know you got my heart in your hand



Ask your momma will she cry when she sees

This 14k band of gold, oh, baby

I wonder will she say what will I tell my friends



Hey baby

Hey, hey



Ask your momma can she feel it, can she feel it

Feel it in her heart

Can she feel it in her heart

Can she feel it in her heart

Ask your momma



It's such a crime, it's such a crime

It's such a crime

It's such a crime, it's such a crime

It's blowing my mind, baby



It's such a crime, it's such a crime

It's blowing my mind

It's blowing my mind

It's blowing my mind

Time after time



I see the looks down their noses

I hear shots in the dark

We sleep on no bed of roses, tug of wars on our hearts, hey



We think we're the perfect blend

But they can't see beyond the skin, whoa



Ask your momma can she feel it

Does she know about my love

Ask your momma can she feel it

Does she know about my love
