Welcome to GOLQ388!  There is one theme.  All songs, including the tie-
breakers, are part of the theme.  The recordings qualify for the theme via song
title, lyrics, or artist name.  Some of these are likely to be stumpers, but
the theme should help to identify them.

Children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet

I remember what my mama told me
She said, "Girl, stay in your class.
You got a whole lot of growin' and a-learnin' to do.
So girl, don't you go so fast."

He takes my money
He makes-a me call him honey

You know I gotta make love and live a little
And what will be, will be
Sure you feel tense and irritable
But don't take it out on me

When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother
"What will I be?"

Mom would come to school
And as I'd sit there softly cryin'
Teacher'd say, "He's just not tryin'.
Got a good head if he'd apply it."

My mother told me
If I was goody
That she would buy me
A rubber dolly

She sits on the dock a-fishin' in the water, uh-huh
I don't know her name
She's the fisherman's daughter, uh-huh

Safe in the glow of your love
Sent from the heavens above
Nothing can ever replace
The warmth of your tender embrace

Now we won't say who's right or wrong
But here's the moral of this song
It can't be bad
It makes you glad
And you are only young so long

I'd walk a million miles for one of your smiles

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that Mother gives you
Don't do anything at all

I don't feel all turned on and starry-eyed
I just feel a sweet contentment deep inside
Holding you at night
Just seems kind of natural and right

My mother once told me somethin'
And every word is true
Don't waste your time on a fella
Who doesn't love you

You lied about the women
About the gamblin' too
There's fun in the big city
Mom there's room for you-ou

Four kids from one to four
Pretty soon there'll be one more
Oh, but, Sundays I'm mighty glad
We send the kids to his mom and dad
It's the day that makes me glad

When I became of age
My mother called me to her side
She said, "Son you're growing up now.
Pretty soon you'll take a bride."

How I miss that sweet lady
With her old country touch
Miss her quaint broken English
Called Pennsylvania Dutch

Should I sigh
Every time he passes by
And if I can't resist
Well should I let him steal a kiss

Well her daughter came home one afternoon and didn't even stop to play
And she said, "Mama, got a note here"

Things are different today
I hear every mother say
Cooking fresh food for her husband's just a drag

Mom was cookin' bread
She wore a dirty raggedy scarf around her head
Always had her stockings low, rolled to her feet
She just didn't know

I went walking the other day-yay
And everything was going fine
I met a little boy named Billy Joe
And then almost lost my mind

Who's the one who tied your shoe when you were young
And knew just when to come and see what you had done

So hurry home to your mama
I'm sure she wonders where you are


Slowly she replied
Tears had filled her eyes
"Baby not so fast
Let your young life last."

The way you boogie all night
You're my heart's delight
You know I wish I might
Get a tiny bite
