Ring Off

Ring Off

[Verse 1:]

Mama, I understand your many sleepless nights

When you sit and you think about Father

Or how you tried to be the perfect wife


You used to dress and fix your hair

Then you’d smile through your tears

In the mirror you would stare

And say a prayer

Like, “I wish he said I’m beautiful

I wish it didn’t hurt at all

I don’t know how I got here

I was once the one who had his heart


Until you had enough then you took that ring off

You took that ring off

So tired of the lies and trying, fighting, crying

Took that ring off

Oh, now the fun begins

Dust yourself off and you’ll love again

Find a new man now you shine and you’re fine

Like it’s my time, you took that ring off

[Verse 2:]

Mama (so sexy), you live and learn, that’s just the way love goes

(Uh, you a killer, you a killer, killer)

Always know that you got a daughter

That’s oh, so proud you took the high road

(You a killer, so sexy)




After all your tears

After all that pain’s all cleared

Mama, after all them years

We can start all over again

Mama, and now it all makes sense

Letting go is never the end

Mama, we can love again

This is where freedom begins


Mama, so put your love on top

Keep on shinning, put your love on top

It’s your time to put your love on top

Everybody put your love on top

Aye, love on top

Aye, love on top

It’s your time to put your love on top

Girl you so fine, put your love on top

[Outro Skit – Tina Knowles:]

If you’re going through it, just know it’s called “going THROUGH it”

You’re not gonna get stuck there, you’re not gonna die

You’re gonna survive
