[Chorus]

                      C
Mama said that it was okay
G                     Bm        Em
Mama said that it was quite alright
                          Bm          Em
Our kind of people have a bed for the night
           D
And it was okay

                    C
Mama told us we are good kids
G                       Bm            Em
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
               D                  Em
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
                   D
Cause we were good kids


[Verse 1]
                        Em
Remember asking both my mom and dad
             D                  G
Why we never traveled to exotic lands
                          Em
We only ever really visit friends
           D             G
Nothing to tell when the summer ends

                     Em
We never really went buying clothes
           D                        G
Folks were passing on this stuff in plenty lords
                 Em
New shoes once a year and then
            D                G
Out to play ball so we could ruin them


[Chorus]
                      C
Mama said that it was okay
G                     Bm        Em
Mama said that it was quite alright
                          Bm          Em
Our kind of people have a bed for the night
           D
And it was okay

                    C
Mama told us we are good kids
G                       Bm            Em
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
               D                  Em
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
                   D
Cause we were good kids


[Verse 2]
                            Em
Don't get me wrong I didn't have it bad
             D              G
I got enough loving from my mom and dad
                              Em
But I don't think they really understood
                   D                  G
When I said that I wanted the deal in Hollywood
                            Em
I told them I'll be singing on TV
                    D            G
The other kids were calling me a wannabe
                            Em
The older kids they started bugging me
                    D                 G
But now they're all standing right in front of me


[Chorus]
                      C
Mama said that it was okay
G                     Bm        Em
Mama said that it was quite alright
                          Bm          Em
Our kind of people have a bed for the night
           D
And it was okay

                    C
Mama told us we are good kids
G                       Bm            Em
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
               Bm                  Em
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
                   D
Cause we were good kids


[Chorus]
  Em         A             C
I know which place I'm from
          G
I know my home
Em          A                   C
When I'm in doubt and struggling
               G
That's where I go
       Em                    D
An old friend can give advice
         C                        G
When new friends only know a half story
               Em                    D
That's why I'm always keep them tight
                C
And why I'm okay

... I said I'm OK

You know what my mama said

You know what she told me


[Chorus]
                      C
Mama said that it was okay
G                     Bm        Em
Mama said that it was quite alright
                          Bm          Em
Our kind of people have a bed for the night
           D
And it was okay

                    C
Mama told us we are good kids
G                       Bm            Em
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
               D                  Em
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
                   D
Cause we were good kids
