Loves Me Like a Rock

ŠPaul Simon, released on There Goes Rhymin' Simon, 1973

.

When I was a little boy (when I was just a boy)

And the Devil would call my name (when I was just a boy)

I'd say "Now who do, (who-oo)

Who do you think you're fooling?" (when I was just a boy)

I'm a consecrated boy (when I was just a bo-o-o-y)

I'm a singer in a Sunday choir (oooh)

.

Oh my mama loves me, she loves me

She get down on her knees and hug me (ahh a-a-ah)

(oh) She loves me like a rock

She rocks me like the rock of ages

And loves me

She love me, love me, love me, love me

.

When I was grown to be a man (grown to be a man)

And the Devil would call my name (grown to be a man)

I'd say "Now who do, (whooo)

Who do you think you're fooling?" (grown to be a man)

I'm a consummated man (grown to be a ma-a-a-n)

I can snatch a little purity (oooh)

.

My mama loves me, she loves me

She get down on her knees and hug me (ahh a-a-ah)

(oh) She loves me like a rock

She rocks me like the rock of ages

And loves me

She love me, love me, love me, love me

.

And if I was the President (was the President)

The minute that Congress called my name (was the President)

I'd say "Now who do, (whooo)

Who do you think you're fooling? (who do you think you're fooling)

I've got the Presidential Seal (was the president)

I'm up on the Presidential Po-o-dium (oooh)

.

My mama loves me, she loves me

She get down on her knees and hug me

(oh) She loves me like a rock

She rocks me like the rock of ages

And loves me

.

[Fade out:]

She love me, love me, love me, love me

(loves me like a rock)
