Mama’s Cookin In The Kitchen
Words & Music By: Donald Stephan Jones
12/28/07

He has no coat
Its cold outside
He has one shoe
The other don’t fit right
He hears his sister crying
But there’s nothing he can do
His Mama’s cookin in the kitchen
With a needle and a spoon

He’s locked outside
And he can’t get in
There ain’t no food
But there’s plenty of gin
He sleeps on the floor
With his dirty teddy bear
Levi is a good boy
He’s just trapped in the devil’s den

He never met his father
But he’s heard about him
Serving life in prison
For killing his best friend
You don’t know lonely
Until lonely is your friend
Instrumental
The welfare lady
In a brand new car
Stops by the house
To talk to Levi’s mom
Soon he hears laughter
And the smell of gin
There ain’t no justice
In the devil’s den

His tears are falling
Like Harlem rain
School is calling
But there ain’t no way
Levi swears someday
He’s going to fix the pain

But Mama’s cookin in the kitchen
With a needle and a spoon
Mama’s cookin in the kitchen
With a needle and a spoon
Mama’s cookin in the kitchen
With a needle and a spoon
