Lyrics Breakdown

A lot of people believe that mothers know best and honestly I am one of them. Our mothers are role models of how strong and brave we are especially for women. They are the ones who taught us what love means and as we grow older, we realize that their words are important in our lives.

Mama, I found someone
Like you said would come along
He’s a sight, so unlike
Any man I’ve known
I was afraid to let him in
‘Cause I’m not the trusting kind
But now I’m convinced
That he’s heaven-sent
And must be out of his mind

The Judds, Mama He's Crazy

The words mentioned above portrays how a mother raised a loving daughter. Every mother’s dream for her daughter is to be loved by someone more than she loves her daughter. I think that the mother being talked about in this song taught her daughter to be vigilant when it comes to love. So when someone courted her, she would not trust the guy at once. A mother does not want her daughter to be hurt or left behind. A mother and daughter may have misunderstandings sometimes, but trust me, their love with each other remains.
