Oh my mama told me 'Cause she say she learned the hard way She say she wanna spare the children She say don't give or sell your soul away 'Cause all that you have is your soul So don't be tempted by the shiny apple Don't you eat of a bitter fruit Hunger only for a taste of justice Hunger only for a world of truth 'Cause all that you have is your soul Well I was a pretty young girl once I had dreams I had high hopes I married a man he stole my heart away He gave his love but what a high price I paid All that you have is your soul So don't be tempted by the shiny apple Don't you eat of a bitter fruit Hunger only for a taste of justice Hunger only for a world of truth 'Cause all that you have is your soul Why was I such a young fool Thought I'd make history Making babies was the best I could do Thought I'd made something that could be mine forever Found out the hard way one can't possess another And all that you have is your soul So don't be tempted by the shiny apple Don't you eat of a bitter fruit Hunger only for a taste of justice Hunger only for a world of truth 'Cause all that you have is your soul I thought, thought that I could find a way To beat the system To make a deal and have no debts to pay I'd take it all, I'd take it all, I'd run away Me for myself first class and first rate But all that you have is your soul So don't be tempted by the shiny apple Don't you eat of a bitter fruit Hunger only for a taste of justice Hunger only for a world of truth 'Cause all that you have is your soul Here I am, I'm waiting for a better day A second chance A little luck to come my way A hope to dream, a hope that I can sleep again And wake in the world with a clear conscience and clean hands 'Cause all that you have is your soul So don't be tempted by the shiny apple Don't you eat of a bitter fruit Hunger only for a taste of justice Hunger only for a world of truth 'Cause all that you have is your soul Oh my mama told me 'Cause she say she learned the hard way She say she wanna spare the children She say don't give or sell your soul away 'Cause all that you have is your soul All that you have All that you have All that you have Is your soul
