I really loved the original lead guitar intro to this song but unfortunately, it took the song to over 5 minutes. I think I would still play it live. I have an acoustic recording with two guitars playing together that I made of a rehearsal in Barcelona with Albert Greenlight. I really like that recording because it’s so raw… recorded with an iPhone.


Mama don’t you cry

It was me who turned out the light

Won’t you sing me a song goodnight?

Then you sing me a song goodbye

Mama wipe the tears from your eyes


Mama never told me no lies

I believe I believe in this life

Though the world is passing us by

We are sailing alone on the tide

Like a spaceman travelling in time

Mama wipe the tears from your eyes

Mama said the stars are burning

With a light to light up your soul

And Mama said the tables are turning

For your bread will be worth more than gold

Yes your bread will be worth more than gold

And you will live through the war of the worlds


Don’t say it’s over

Don’t say it’s true

Take on this lifeline and do

What you gotta do

What you gotta do…

You’re just a twenty-first-century man

You destroy what you don’t understand

Just like a soup of nuclear treacle

The future’s slippin’ out of your hands


And here I am

And here I will stand

If there’s hope in your heart

Then reach out your hand

Come on! … reach out your hand…


Mama never told me no lies

I believe I believe in this life

Though the world is passing us by

We are sailing alone on the tide

Like a spaceman travelling in time

So, Mama wipe the tears from your eyes

Don’t say it’s over

Don’t say it’s true

Take on this lifeline and do

What you gotta do…

Don’t say that it’s over

Don’t say that it’s true

Take on this lifeline and do

What you gotta do

What you gotta do…

You’re just a twenty-first-century man

You destroy what you don’t understand

Just like a soup of nuclear treacle

The future’s slippin’ out of your hands

The future’s in the palm of your hand

The future’s in the palm of your hand

The future’s in the palm of your hand

The future’s in the palm of your hand
