Simphiwe Dana – Mama Was A Kitchen Girl Lyrics

Lyrics For Mama was A Kitchen Girl By Simphiwe Dana

Intro]
Papa was a mere garden boy
Mama was a mere kitchen girl
Papa was a mere garden boy
Mama was a mere kitchen girl
Mama was a mere kitchen girl
Mama was a mere kitchen girl

[Chorus]
And I am the water
Seeping into concrete
And I am the flower
Growing on the concrete
I am mama’s refuge, sometimes I’m the air
Sometimes I’m your ego, mama says mama says
And I’m wearing brown skin
And my wealth is my body
Mama I’m a target everywhere I go
And I am a mocking bird
I see what you really are
We all have our journeys
Just don’t start no trouble

[Verse]
Papa was a garden boy
Mama was a kitchen girl
Mama I’m the water seeping into concrete, drown
Papa on my good day sometimes I’m your ego, breathe
I am a mocking bird, I see what you really are
I need your loving heart
I want the happiness that comes with loving you
Sets the world on fire
Happiness burn it to the ground

[Bridge]
(burn it to the ground)
Kitchen Girl, don’t start no trouble
(Burn it to the ground)
I want the happiness sometimes I’m the fire burn
(Burn it to the ground)
(Concrete drown)
Don’t want no trouble
(Burn it to the ground)
Eagle breathe
(Burn it to the ground)
Don’t want no trouble
(Burn it to the ground)
I need your loving heart

[Chorus]
And I am the water
Seeping into concrete
And I am the flower
Growing on the concrete
I am mama’s refuge, sometimes I’m the air
Sometimes I’m your ego, mama says mama says
And I’m wearing brown skin
And my wealth is my body
I know I’m a target everywhere I go
And I am a mocking bird
I see what you really are
We all have our journeys
Just don’t start no trouble

[Outro]
Mama was a mere kitchen girl
Mama was a mere kitchen girl
Mama was a mere kitchen girl
Mama was a kitchen girl
Seeping into concrete
Sometimes I’m the air
Mama was a mere kitchen girl
