Can't Have Your Cake

When I was a young boy my mama would say
Son, you ain't always gonna get your way
Times will be good, times will be bad
You ain't always gonna get a winning hand
Son, she always said, you gotta stand tall
Even when it looks like you'll take a fall
Life is short and sometimes sweet
Get out of the kitchen if you can't take the heat

Everything she said was true
My mama never was a fool
Gotta live your life by the golden rule

I guess it's true what they say
Really true what they say
I guess what mama said was true
Can't have your cake and eat it too, babe

I never doubted any word my
Mutha said
With all the sinnin' runnin' 'round my head
