MAMA GOT HER PARTY HAT ON (feat Donnie)
Lyrics

MAMA GOT HER PARTY HAT ON
Words and Music by Mary Grimley

Verse 1

Her son went off to war,
In the National Guard,
A six month tour.
She died inside,
Fearing the worst.
But today there came a glorious tweet,
"I'm coming home, Ma.
What's to eat?"

Pre-Chorus

Mama's grin is ocean's wide

Chorus 1

Mama got her party hat on! Believe it!
Mama got her party hat on!
She's a-skipping! No more nightmare tripping!
Mama got her party hat on! Yeah!
Mama got her party hat on! Believe it!
Mama got her party hat on!
She's a-skipping! Happiness tripping!
Mama got her party hat on!

Verse 2

He had barely waved goodbye.
His baby wailed, tears in her eyes,
"Why has Mummy gone to war?"
But today a voicemail from a train,
"Hi, baby girl, Mum's home again!"

Pre-Chorus

Daddy's grin is ocean's wide!

Chorus 2

Daddy got his party hat on! Believe it!
Daddy got his party hat on!
He's cooked roast beef! Hauled out the best sheets!
Daddy got his party hat on! Yeah!
Daddy got his party hat on! Believe it!
Daddy got his party hat on!
He's a-skipping! Happiness tripping!
Daddy got his party hat on!

Bridge
Wounded warriors
Should never
Feel alone.
O, no-o

Chorus 3

Mama got her party hat on! Believe it!
Mama got her party hat on!
She's a-skipping! No more nightmare tripping!
Mama got her party hat on!
Yeah!
Mama got her party hat on! Believe it!
Mama got her party hat on!
She's a-skipping! Happiness tripping!
Mama got her party hat on!

Outro

Mama got her party hat on!
