(James Downham)

Momma always taught me don’t talk to strangers
Don’t talk to girls
But girl you were stranger than I was prepared for
I thought I had no time for that

You walked right up to me – told me that you wanted me
I melted into you – what else was I s’posed to do?
I melted right into you
How could momma be so wrong…

She couldn’t see the truth – Don’t talk to girls
I didn’t listen to – Don’t talk to girls
I always needed you – Don’t talk to girls
God how I needed you – Don’t talk to girls

Momma always told me that you were too good for me
That you’d leave when you figured it out
Easy just to laugh it off as busybody crazy talk
Besides, we were in love

You walked right up to me and you told me that you hated me
I died a bit that day – tell me what was I s’posed to say
I died a little that day – turns out momma was right…

She always spoke the truth – Don’t talk to girls
I didn’t listen to – Don’t talk to girls
I never needed you – Don’t talk to girls
I never needed you – Don’t talk to girls

She always spoke the truth – Don’t talk to girls
I didn’t listen to – Don’t talk to girls
I never needed you – Don’t talk to girls
God how I needed you – Don’t talk to girls

Momma always taught me
Don’t talk to strangers
Don’t talk to girls
