Hey, ain't got no mama now.
Hey, ain't got no mama now.
She told me late last night, you don't need no mama no-how.

Mmm, black snake crawlin' in my room,
Mmm, black snake crawlin' in my room,
And some pretty mama had better come and get this black snake soon.

Ohh, that must been a bed-bug, you know a chinch can't bite that hard.
Ohh, that musta been a bed-bug, you know a chinch can't bite that hard.
Asked my baby for fifty cents, she said, "Lemon, I ain't a child in the yard."

Mama, that's alright, mama, that's alright for you.
Mama, that's alright, mama, that's alright for you.
Said, "Baby, that's alright, most any old way you do."

Mmm, what's the matter now?
Mmm, honey, what's the matter now?
Tell me what's the matter, baby. "I don't like no black snake no-how."

Well, wonder where's the black snake gone.
Well, wonder where's the black snake gone.
Lord, that black snake, mama, done run my darlin' home.
