      The Temptations - Papa Was A Rollin Stone Música y Letra

      It was the third of September
      That day I'll always remember (yes I will)
      'cause that was the day that my daddy died
      I never got a chance to see him
      Never heard nothin' but bad things about him
      Mama I'm depending on you to tell me the truth
      
      Mama just hung her head and said: Son,
      
      Papa was a rollin' stone
      Wherever he laid his hat was his home
      And when he died,
      All he left us was alone
      
      Hey Mama,
      Is it true, what they say that Papa never worked a day in his life?
      
      And Mama,
      Some bad talk goin' round town say that Papa had three young, sad children and another wife
      And that ain't right!
      
      Heard some talk about Papa doin' some storefront preachin'
      Talkin' about savin' souls, and all the time leechin'
      Dealin' in naught
      And stealing in the name of the Lord
      
      Mama just hung her head and said:
      
      Papa was a rollin' stone
      Wherever he laid his hat was his home
      And when he died,
      All he left us was alone
      
      Hey Mama,
      I heard Papa call himself a jack of all trades
      Tell me, is that what sent Papa to an early grave?
      Folks say Papa would beg, borrow, steal to pay his bills
      
      Hey Mama,
      Folks say Papa was never much on thinkin'
      Spend most of his time chasin' women and drinkin'!
      
      Mama, I'm depending on you to tell me the truth
      
      Mama looked up with a tear in her eye and said:
      
      Papa was a rollin' stone
      Wherever he laid his hat was his home
      And when he died,
      All he left us was alone
