lyrics

Mama had a baby and the baby said
“Never never never will I ever do this again.”
Mama had a baby and the baby said
“Never never never will I ever do this again.”
‘Cause I gave my heart to a man of stone
And it crushed it beneath his feet.
I gave my heart to a man of fire
And he scorched it.
I gave my heart to a man I loved
But he exchanged it for another.

But mama, you said that hearts were never made for keeping.
Mama, you said that hearts were never made for keeping.

Mama had a baby and the baby said,
“Mama I don’t ever want to go through this again.”
Mama had a baby and the baby said
“Mama I don’t ever want to go through this again.”
‘Cause I gave my heart to a woman of stone
And she crushed it beneath her feet.
I gave my heart to a woman of fire
And she scorched it.
I gave my heart to a woman I loved
But she exchanged it for another.

But mama, you said that hearts were never made for keeping.
Mama, you said that hearts were never made for keeping.


Don’t try to find me, I’m already gone.
I’ve got wind between my fingers and marrow in my bones.
I just won’t be treated this way.

Now the wind’s a-blowin’ at my back, and I’m so glad to be
A-runnin’ and a-jumpin’ and a-shoutin’ that I’m free.
I just won’t be treated this way.

Find me a boat and a bottle of gin
And I’ll hit the seven seas, you won’t see me again.
I just won’t be treated this way.

about

Yo Soy Indigo Prague, Czech Republic

A mish-mosh of six wonderfully weird, international musicians with blazing solos, soulful melodies, deep lyrical expression, and an ample serving of humor. The band calls itself "freak-folk-jazz", which just scratches the surface of the free-flowing genres they explore. ... more
