Oh Mama, please come home
Oh Mama, please come home

Oh Mama, oh Mama, come home with me now
Papa and me we are hungry and howl
You’ve been away since a quarter to two
Jumping around with that jitterbug crew
Papa’s been mending the holes in his socks
While you stick nickels in the jitterbug box

Mama, come home
Come home, come cook a chik
Mama, come home
Come on, you cookin' slick
Mama, come home
Come on, but double quick
Mama, oh Mama, oh Mama, come home

Mama, come home
Come on, make with us steak
Mama, come home
Come on, bake with us cake
Mama, come home
Come on, give us a break
You’ve been away all day and that is why you hear me say

Mama, oh Mama, come home with me, please
Gone are the crackers and gone is the cheese
Mama, oh Mama, the best thing to do
Seein' that pap is a jitterbug too
And he is so mad that the house really rocks
You better come and bring the jitterbug box

Oh Mama, oh Mama, come home with me now
Papa and me we are hungry and howl

Mama, come home
Mama, come home
Mama, come home
Mama, oh Mama, oh Mama, come home

Mama, come home
Make with us steak
Mama, come home
Bake with us cake
Mama, come home
Please give us a break
You’ve been away all day and that is why you hear me say

Mama, oh Mama, come home
Oh Mama, oh Mama, come home
Say papa’s so mad that the house really rocks
You’d better come and bring the jitterbug box

Come home…
