"I Dreamed About Mama Last Night" lyrics

I Dreamed About Mama Last Night

I've just been to heaven
With someone so true
I dreamed about mama last night
She read me the Bible
Like she used to do
I dreamed about mama last night

She never close her eyes to sleep
Till we were all in bed
And on party nights when we come home
She often sat and read

We little thought about it then
For we were young and gay
Just how much mama worried
When we children were away

We only knew she never slept
When we were out at night
That she waited just to know
That we'd all come home alright

Why sometimes when we'd stay away
Till one or two or three
It seemed to us that mama heard
The turning of the key

For always when we'd step inside
She'd call and we'd reply
But we were all too young back then
To understand the reason why

Until the last one had returned
She'd always keep a light
For mama couldn't sleep
Until she kissed us all goodnight

She had to know that we were safe
Before she went to rest
She seemed to fear that the world might harm
The ones that she loved the best

And once she told me when you're grown
To women and to men
Perhaps I'll sleep the whole night through
I may be different then

And so it seemed that night and day
We knew a mother's care
That always when we got back home
We'd find her waiting there

Then came the night that we were called
Together around her bed
The children're all with you now
The kindly doctor said

And in her eyes the gleam again
That old time tender light
That told that she's just been waiting
Just to know that we were alright

She smiled that old familiar smile
And prayed to God to keep
Her children safe from harm throughout the years
And then she went to sleep

My dream is a treasure
That I'll always keep
I dreamed about mama last night
