Land   Verenigde Staten

Hiphop- en r&b-groep uit Philadelphia, in 1985 opgericht door de toen 14-jarige Nathan Morris en zijn klasgenoot Marc Nelson. Via het schoolkoor kwamen Wanya Morris en Shawn Stockman erbij. Michael McCary kwam er als laatste bij. In eerste instantie trad het vijftal op als Unique Attraction.

Als Boyz II Men (de naam is ontleend aan het nummer Boys To Men van New Edition, geen Top 40-hit) lag het hoogtepunt van hun populariteit halverwege de jaren negentig. Tot 2003 vormden Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris, Shawn Stockman en Michael McCary een kwartet. Later werd het een trio zonder McCary.


Songtekst

You taught me everything
And everything you've given me
I'll always keep it inside
You're the driving force in my life, yeah

There isn't anything
Or anyone that I could be
And it just wouldn't feel right
If I didn't have you by my side

ohh You were there for me to love and care for me
When skies were grey
Whenever I was down
You were always there to comfort me
And no one else can be what you have been to me
You will always be
You will always be the girl in my life for all times

*Chorus*
Mama, mama you know I love you
Ooh you know I love you
Mama, mama you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like
Tears from the stars (yes it is)
Mama, I just want you to know
Lovin' you is like food to my soul
Yes it is, yes it is (ooh), yes it is, yes it is, yes it is

You're always down for me
Have always been around for me even when I was bad
You showed me right from my wrong (yes you did)
And you took up for me
When everyone was downin' me
You always did understand
You gave me strength to go on

There was so many times
Looking back when I was so afraid
And then you'd come to me
And say to me I could face anything
And no one else can do
What you have done for me
You'll always be
You will always be the girl in my life (ooh)

*Chorus*
Mama, mama you know I love you
you know i love you (2x)
Ooh you know I love you
Mama, mama you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like
Tears from the stars (yes it is)
Mama, I just want you to know
Mama i just want you to know
Lovin' you is like food to my soul

*Bridge*
Never gonna go a day without you
Fills me up just thinking about you
Could never go a day without my mama

*Chorus*
mama you know I love you
Ooh you know I love you
Mama, mama you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like
Tears from the stars
Mama, I just want you to know
Lovin' you is like food to my soul
Lovin' you is like food to my soul
Ooh, yeah yeah
You are the food to my soul
Yes you are, oh
