              Daddy's rod did it's best to keep me outta jail
              But Mamma believed in the kind of love that will never fail
              No doubt no one can ever earn the kind of love that's free
              Like Mary was to Jesus, mamma was to me

                    I tried mamma's patience, she tried to be kind
                    An' though I rarely listened, she tried to make me mind
                    Lord knows I wasn't half as good as she thought I should be
                    But like Mary was to Jesus, mamma was to me

              Like Mary, mamma gave me some sisters and brothers
              She taught us to fear God and stand up for each other
              She showed us the best kind of love just comes naturally
              Like Mary was to Jesus, mamma was to me

                    I tried mamma's patience, she tried to be kind
                    An' though I rarely listened, she tried to make me mind
                    Lord knows I wasn't half as good as she thought I should be
                    But like Mary was to Jesus, mamma was to me

              Yeah, she tried hard to make us tow the line
              But somehow that never quite worked for me
              No doubt Lord knows I'm lucky
              That the best things in life are free, free, free

                    I tried mamma's patience, she tried to be kind
                    An' though I rarely listened, she tried to make me mind
                    No, there's no better mamma in all of history
                    Like Mary was to Jesus, mamma was to me
                    Like Mary was to Jesus, mamma was to me
