My Mammy lyrics, made famous by Al Jolson

Song lyrics to My Mammy€ music by Walter Donaldson and lyrics by Joe Young and Sam M. Lewis.   Interestingly, it was first recorded  by William Frawley of I Love Lucy fame

Everything is lovely
When you start to roam;
The birds are singin’, the day that you stray,
But later, when you are further away,
Things won’t seem so lovely
When you’re all alone;
Here’s what you’ll keep saying
When you’re far from home:

Mammy,
Mammy,
The sun shines east, the sun shines west,
I know where the sun shines best — €“
Mammy,
My little mammy,
My heartstrings are tangled around Alabammy.
I’m comin’,
Sorry that I made you wait.
I’m comin’,
Hope and trust that I’m not late, oh oh oh
Mammy,
My little Mammy,
I’d walk a million miles
For one of your smiles,
My Mammy! Oh oh oh …

(spoken) Mammy …
My little Mammy.
The sun shines east — €“ the sun shines west — €“
I know where — €“ the sun shines best!
It’s on my Mammy I’m talkin’ about, nobody else’s!
(sung) My little Mammy,
My heartstrings are tangled around Alabammy.
(spoken) Mammy — €“ Mammy, I’m comin’ — €“
I’m so sorry that I made you wait!
Mammy — €“ Mammy, I’m comin’!
Oh God, I hope I’m not late!
Look at me, Mammy! Don’t you know me?
I’m your little baby!
(sung) I’d walk a million miles
For one of your smiles,
My Mammy!
