“Mama Nantucket” Lyrics

Oh, Mama Nantucket
She tried to kick the habit
But she didn’t and she got stung
I tried to relieve her
But she wasn’t a believer
Until she found another one

Doe-doe-doe-leedle-oh-doo-ley-hee
I love it here on the range
Oh-my-tie-yi-yippie
I would love it more if it changed

Doe-doe-doe-leedle-oh-doo-ley-hee
I love it here on the range
Oh-my-tie-yi-yippie
I would love it more if it changed, woo

Oh, Bobby with a dollar
He was sure he found the answer
But it might take a little time
Playin’ follow the leader
He was sure would be a winner
But I had other things on my mind

Doe-doe-doe-leedle-oh-doo-ley-hee
I love it here on the range
Oh-my-tie-yi-yippie
I would love it more if it changed

Doe-doe-doe-leedle-oh-doo-ley-hee
I love it here on the range
Oh-my-tie-yi-yippie
I would love it more if it changed

Whoa, I see all the people runnin’
Comin’ from miles around
Everybody’s singin’ a different tune
See them all fall down

Well, I don’t like to quarrel
But what about tomorrow?
Will it be the same as the past?
I keep on hopin’
That something will happen
And I hope that it happens fast

Low-doo-leedle-oh-doo-ley-hee
I love it here on the range
Oh-my-tie-yi-yippie
I would love it more if it changed

Low-doe-leedle-oh-doo-ley-hee
I love it here on the range
Oh-my-tie-yi-yippie
I would love it more if it changed

[break]
[???]
“Oh, my my!”

Whoa, lee-doo-leedle-oh-doo-ley-hee
I love it here on the range
Ah-oh-my-tie-yi-yippie
I would love it more if it changed

Uh, low-doo-leedle-oh-doo-ley-hee
I love it here on the range
Oh-my-tie-yi-yippie
I would love it more if it changed
Yes, I’d love it more if it changed
