The Reklaws – Got It From My Mama Lyrics

Got It From My Mama Lyrics – The Reklaws

That girl, right there
In that faded photograph
Smiles just like me
Summer of ’73
These old blue jeans
Handed on down to me
You can’t buy ’em in no store
They don’t make ’em like this no more
She must have known they’d fit me perfectly

I got it from my mama
I thank god that I did
All the best parts of this heart
Every freckle on my skin
I got it from my mama
I got a lot of her in me
So if you’re wondering who I am or who I wanna be
Just look at her, you’ll see
Cause I got it from my mama
I got it from my mama

Stubborn, 16
Couldn’t tell me anything
And heaven knows she tried
Everybody said, “You’re so alike”
Well she gave me more than my blue eyes
I see it more and more as time goes by

I got it from my mama
I thank god that I did
All the best parts of this heart
Every freckle on my skin
I got it from my mama
I got a lot of her in me
So if you’re wondering who I am or who I wanna be
Just look at her, you’ll see
Cause I got it from my mama

Maybe somewhere down the road, someday
A little girl who looks like me
Will look at me and say

I got it from my mama
And thank god that I did
All the best parts of this heart
Every freckle on my skin
I got it from my mama
I got a lot of her in me
So if you’re wondering who I am or who I wanna be
Just look at her, you’ll see
Cause I got it from my mama
I got it from my mama
I got it from my mama
I got it from my mama
I got it from my mama
