Carl Carlton wrote “Bad Mama Jama” in 1981, and it became an instant smash hit. It still works terrifically well as a timeless classic. Teamed with his 1974 breakout hit “Everlasting Love,” Carlton has been a strong force in pop music. The lyrics to “Bad Mama Jama” are about as trite as you could ever write them…but, as with so many other dance hits, the lyrics hold a back seat far from the bass, drums and synthesizers.
“Bad Mama Jama”
She’s a bad mama jama, just as fine as she can be, hey
She’s a bad mama jama, just as fine as she can be
Her body measurements are perfect in every dimension
She’s got a figure that’s sho nuff gettin’ attention
She’s poetry in motion, a beautiful sight to see
I get so excited viewin her anatomy
Got all the curves that men like (She’s got all the curves that men like)
(She’s built) She’s built, she’s stacked (Oh, she’s got)
Got all the curves that men like (Got all the curves that men like, look at her)
The hell with lyrics, let’s dance.
