Mama He's a soldier now

Hidden in the warmth of your arms

You were always there when he cried

And you always held him too tight

But you did it with your heart

 

Mama, he's older now

 

Growing up without any fear

Both of you never broke apart

But now he's breaking your heart

When he walks out of the door

 

Mama's, he's a soldier now

 

For the first time he's free

And he's happy while he's joining the army

He's still your son

Night and day you've rocked your baby

 

And you wanna keep him (And you wanna keep him)

But you wanna keep the past mama (You wanna keep him home)

Don't you see he's a man?

And he's a soldier now

 

You still treat him like a child

Little boys keep growing

You have to break the chain

You know it but you just won't see it

 

No, oh no!

You just won't see it

 

Now he fights for freedom in a land

In a country oh, so far away

And all you can do is sit and wait

For a letter or a sign

 

Mama, he's a soldier now

 

For the first time he's free

And he's happy while he's joining the army

He's still your son

Night and day you've rocked your baby

 

And you wanna keep him (And you wanna keep him)

But you wanna keep the past mama

Don't you see he's a man?

And he's a soldier now

 

You still treat him like a child

Little boys keep growing

You'll have to break the chain

You know it but you just won't see it

 

You still treat him like a child

Little boys keep growing

You'll have to break the chain

You know it but you just won't see it

 

You still treat him like a child

Little boys keep growing

You'll have to break the chain

You know it but you just won't see it

 

You still treat him like a child
