Lyrics

Mama Margie's Comin'

Written By: Ben Hallman

It’s an early morning on a Saturday
A little boy rides out to meet the sun
It seems much brighter than all the other days
Or maybe it’s just because he’s expecting someone
She’s barreling down the highway in a sky blue Pontiac
The little boy’s heart beats like a heart attack
Due around 11 she usually arrives more towards noon
When waitin’ on Grandma she can’t get there too soon
Is that tires on the gravel?
Well, that sound has just made my day cuz
Chorus:
Mama Margie’s comin’!
Mama Margie’s comin’!
Bust through the door feet hit the ground already runnin’
Cuz Mama Margie’s comin’, and you know I love that woman
Then, now, later, forever... Oh yeah!

Mama Margie ain’t quite from the old school
She was just born a little early--she’s always been pretty
cool
And she can tell a story that’ll grab ahold of you
So hold on tight we’ll hear one tonight!
And see the look on this little boy’s face
When she says “Come let’s see what’s in my suitcase”

Chorus

And sometimes on an early morning Saturday
Me and the wife and kids get our bikes and ride
Relieving the struggles of the working days
Peddling forward drifting back in time...
Is that tires on the gravel?
Just for a moment... I close my eyes and
Mama Margie’s comin’!
Mama Margie’s comin’!
Bust through the door feet hit the ground already runnin’
Cuz Mama Margie’s comin’, man you know I love that woman
Then, now, later, forever
I love you then, now, and later
Grandma I love you forever! Oh yeah!

Don't Forget

Written By: Ben Hallman

Honey, please let me be
Work was hard can't you see
Come back when my aches are gone
Just a little time alone
Don't worry me today, we've got plenty of time tomorrow
Nothing left to say... wait! I'm begging your pardon
Sometimes I forget to say I love you
I don't want to forget to show you that I do
I don’t mean to forget to say I love you
Whoa! Don't forget, don't forget, don't forget

Time was slipping away from me
If I’d only known the urgency
I'd have held you from the dawn ‘til dawn
Who’d have known you'd soon be gone?
And I wish I could go back... Lord, turn me away from
tomorrow
But I can't go back, I'm stuck here to suffer in my sorrow
I didn’t want to forget to say I love you
I didn't want to forget to show you that I do
I didn’t mean to forget to say I love you
Whoa! Don't forget, don't forget, don't forget

Right now it seems we've got ten thousand years
But you know our days they are numbered
Now don't be offended, lest you forget
Consider this a friendly reminder

Don’t you forget to say I love you
Please don’t forget to show ‘em that it’s true
I’m beggin’ don’t forget to say I love you
Whoa! Don’t forget, don’t forget, don’t forget
Now don’t you forget to say I love you
Please, please don’t forget to show ‘em that you care
Don’t dare forget to say I love you
Whoa! Don’t forget, don’t forget, don’t forget
Don’t you forget, don’t forget, don’t forget
Don’t you forget, don’t forget, don’t forget, don’t forget
Don’t forget
