  1. Pretty Mama

From the recording Jersey Stories Part 1

written 5/18/79-----
One of my favorite albums back then was Greg Allman's Laid Back. He wrote all these beautiful songs for his wife at the time Janice-then she dumped him. That was a life lesson for me-beware of those love songs.
"Don't wanna speak too soon, cause everytime I do, uh oh something goes wrong and I guess I'm to blame".

Lyrics

Pretty Mama

Doodle-lit-doo-doo
whoa-oh
Doodle-lit-doo-doo
pretty mama
Doodle-lit-doo-doo
whoa-oh yea
Doodle-lit-doo-doo
whoa-oh yea, pretty mama

she's been there right through it all
through thick or thin
whenever I call
I'd be a fool to let her go now
just like a good friend she won't let you down
and I'm singin'

Doodle-lit-doo-doo
whoa oh
Doodle-lit-doo-doo
pretty mama

there were times I was depressed
look in the mirror, oh what a mess
then she came along in her own footloose way
scatter those forces
inspire my day
and I'm singin'

Doodle-lit-doo-doo
whoa-oh yea
Doodle-lit-doo-doo
pretty mama

don't want to think it's cool
thinkin' everything is so secure
don't want to speak too soon
cause everytime I do..
oh oh uh oh

something goes wrong and I guess I'm to blame
I think I belong but I feel out of place
now I walk with her and she doesn't mind
we only go out to have a good time
and I'm singin'

Doodle-lit-doo-doo
whoa-oh
Doodle-lit-doo-doo
pretty mama
Doodle-lit-doo-doo
whoa-oh yea
Doodle-lit-doo-doo
pretty mama
