My mama always told me I would have the hits She wasn't alive to see me have a hit Had to make decisions, go and hit the road That was back when Keisha nearly had a kid. Nigga, had to sell about a quarter ounce Sold pop of front of somethin' like a whole ounce He said, "Why you never get to see me at the crib?" Step mama moved in, nigga, so I bounced Real shit, if I had to sell a quarter water Only thing I gotta do I get rent pay Told the teachers, nigga, I'ma be a fuckin' rebel Dropped out next week, that was 10th grade Yeah, rich young nigga,.
I started thinking about that, and 'Mama Never Told Me' popped off. So basically it was just imagining a mother's conversation to her daughter, then I had to flip the script, because her mama couldn't tell her too much, because she fell for the same thing: a quiet ma. This was recorded at Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia, with members of the studio house band (known as MFSB) providing the instrumentation.
Mama always told me don't play in the street Never talk to strangers and look before you leap She had a list a mile long, what I should and shouldn't do Mama talked a lot, but Mama never told me 'bout you. Oh, she tried to warn me 'bout the ways of the world But she ne ver said nothin' 'bout a tow-headed girl Guess I shoulda gone to Daddy, cause Mama never knew Yeah, Mama talked a lot, but Mama never told me 'bout you. Mama never mentioned The way I'd feel Fallin' for you Head over heels But Mama never met ya So she didn't have a clue Yeah, Ma. .
Mama Never Told Me. Love this track. Top of the Pops 46. Top of the Poppers.
In 1973, they released the single "Mama Never Told Me", which became a top 20 hit in the UK in 1975, but it was with the Patrick Grant & Gwen Guthrie single "Love Don’t Go Through No Changes On Me" (released in 1974) that the siblings enjoyed their first taste of success. The song was a big hit in Japan and as a result the girls were flown to the country to perform at the Tokyo Music Festival where they won the Silver Prize. The sisters also performed at the Zaire 74 concert in Africa alongside James Brown during The Rumble in the Jungle boxing event. Debbie, Joni and Kim produced solo material during this period before being reunited in the studio to record the album Style in 2003. Due to legal difficulties, the project officially remains unreleased. Kim, an ordained minister, took some time out from the group but soon joined Kathy and Joni on various International shows.
