INTRO


Mama, she wrote me a letter
Saying she's gonna be fine
Please take good care of your sister
I'll be home in three years time


Mama, it seems like forever
You've been gone since I was 5
They say you were a good teacher
In the same school where I can't survive


CHORUS
Mama's a maid in London
I want to believe that she's fine
She could be lonely in London
I want to know why she had to go
I need her, I want to be near her
I've got to be with her
And see to it that we're together once more


My English teacher, she told me
She wants to be where you are
Mama, she's leaving her family
To earn all the money she wants


London, Vancouver or Hong Kong
Governess, housekeeper or nurse
What is to happen to all of us, children
With mothers who travel so far


[Repeat CHORUS]


Once more
