Mama Always Told Me

Mama always told me
girl live your life right
think on your decisions
you only have one life.
Reach for your highest
girl try to reach the top
mistakes are in the making
but goals must never stop.
Mama always told me
girl you'd better think twice
regrets are bitter feelings
there's no reverse in life
If I'd listened to my mama
and took her best advice
I wouldn't be here untying
These knots I've made in life
