Oh Mama: Mama Told Me Not to Come

Three Dog Night: Mama Told Me Not to Come


Randy Newman: Mama Told Me Not to Come


Am I the last person on the planet to learn that Randy Newman wrote this song?!? - don't answer that... :-)

In doing a bit of research, I see that Eric Burdon & The Animals released the tune in the late-60's... but my first awareness of it was the version by Three Dog Night, which will always remind me of high school: alcohol and drugs and prom-iscuity... oh my!
