When I was a little boy (When I was just a boy)
And the Devil'd call my name (When I was just a boy)
I say, "Now who do" (Who)
"Who do you think you're fooling?" (When I was just a boy)
I'm a consecrated boy (When I was just a boy)
Singer in a Sunday choir
Oh, my mama loves me, she loves me
She get down on her knees and hug me
And she loves me like a rock
She rocks me like the rock of ages
And loves me
She love me, love me, love me, love me

When I was grown to be a man (Grown to be a man)
Mm, and the Devil would call my name (Grown to be a man)
I say "Now who do" (Who)
"Who do you think you're fooling?" (Grown to be a man)
I'm a consummated man (Grown to be a man)
I can snatch a little purity
My mama loves me, she loves me
She get down on her knees and hug me
Oh, she loves me like a rock
She rock me like the rock of ages
And loves me
She love me, love me, love me, love me

And if I was the President (Was the President)
The minute the Congress call my name (Was the President)
I say "Now, who do" (Who)
"Who do you think you're fooling?" (Who do you think you're fooling?)
I got the Presidential seal (Was the President)
I'm up on the Presidential podium
My mama loves me, she loves me
She get down on her knees and hug me
Oh, and she loves me like a rock
She rock me like the rock of ages
And love me
She love me, love me, love me, love me
Love me like a rock
She love me, love me, love me, love me
Love me like a rock
She love me, love me, love me, love me
Love me like a rock
Whoo, yeah
Love me like a rock
La-la-la-la-la-la
Rock me like the rock of ages
Love me like a rock
Love me like a rock
Rock me like the rock of ages
Love me like a rock
Love me like a rock
La-la-la-la-la-la
Rock me like the rock of ages
Love me like a rock
Love me like a rock
Whoo-hoo
Rock me like the rock of ages
Love me like a rock
Love me like a rock
Rock me like the rock of ages
Love me like a rock
Love me like a rock
Rock me like the rock of ages
Love me like a rock
Love me like a rock
Rock me like the rock of ages

I'm about eleven or twelve, this is all over the radio, and on a visit to Coffeyville, Kansas, when I start singing along, my aunt, my mother, and my cousin Toni can't help but join in, all nodding it's clever but silly, and totally fun, and catchy as hell. Music memories!

Wow, hostile much? There are kinder ways to point out any nation's form of governance is open to attack. Multinational corporations wield more power than most countries and these are the donors elected officials listen to. Basically, it all comes down to the fact resources are perceived as limited and corporations must compete for them. To do this they recruit governments to assist in making corporate profits by negotiating trade deals, mineral rights, and opening new markets. Descriptors such as "fascist" or "democratic" are not helpful, in fact, quite the opposite It creates the false narrative that there is a distinction between the way in which we're governed as opposed to those foreigners. There are superficial differences but governments are driven by the same thing: currency.

You are joking right?  You might want to learn what Fascism is before making a comparison like that.

It's so frightening that some repubs cannot see how clearly that they have aligned themselves with white supremacists, misogynists, and fascists.  I fear the end of democracy is near and that 1/2 (or more) of us will stroll through that door singing with boot heels clicking.

Oh yes, the memories that can bump a person's rating up from what others would rate it at....and while I don't have those particular memories with this song I think's it great and rate an eight.  Long Live RP and our (collective) music memories!!
I just saw the Homeward Bound Tour Saturday night in Houston.
It was amazing.
If you get a chance you should go.

Love this song!  so much better than the recent Paul Simon album.  I'm not liking that song about having a backstage pass.

Paul's best pre-Graceland solo album, IMO.
Chock full o' tasty tunes!

A staple of AM radio in the 70's along with Kodachrome.
