Artiestinformatie

Land   Denemarken

De band Lukas Graham bestaat uit leadzanger Lukas Forchhammer, Magnus Larsson, Kasper Daugaard en Mark Falgren. De band viel op nadat ze een aantal nummers op YouTube plaatsten die in thuisland Denemarken al snel werden opgepakt. Met Drunk In The Morning en Better Than Yourself (Criminal Mind) Part 2 scoorden ze in 2012 nummer 1-hits in hun thuisland.


Eind 2012 verscheen hun titelloze debuutalbum en daarvan verscheen in 2015 een nieuwe versie. Mama Said, Strip You More en 7 Years wisten eveneens op de eerste plek van de Deense hitlijst te komen. Ook in Nederland wordt 7 Years hun Top 40-debuut en bereiken ze eind januari 2016 voor twee weken de eerste plaats. Mama Said blijft steken in de Tipparade en krijgt in 2017 een opvolger met You're Not There.


Songtekst

When mama said that it was okay
Mama said that it was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was okay
Mama told us we were good kids
And daddy told us: never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
Cause we were good kids

Remember asking both my mom and dad
Why we never travelled to exotic lands
We only ever really visit friends
Nothing to tell when the summer ends
We never really went buying clothes
Folks were passing on the stuff in plenty loads
New shoes once a year and then
Out to play ball so we could ruin them

When mama said that it was okay
Mama said that it was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was okay
Mama told us we were good kids
And daddy told us: never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
Cause we were good kids

Don't get me wrong, I didn't have it bad
I got enough loving from my mom and dad
But I don't think they really understood
When I said that I wanted a deal in Hollywood
I told them I'd be singing on TV
The other kids were calling me a wannabe
The older kids, they started bugging me
But now they're all standing right in front of me

When mama said that it was okay
Mama said that it was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was okay
Mama told us we were good kids
And daddy told us: never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
Cause we were good kids

I know which place I'm from
I know my home
When I'm in doubt and struggling
That's where I go
An old friend can give advice
Where new friends only know a half story
That's why I always keep them tight
And why I'm okay, I said I'm OK

You know what my mama said
You know what she told me

My mama said that it was okay
Mama said that it was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was okay
Mama told us we were good kids
And daddy told us: never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
Cause we were good kids

When mama said that it was okay
Papada papada papa
Papada papada papa
Papada papada papa
When mama said that it was okay
Papada papada papa
Papada papada papa
Papada papada papa
When mama said that it was okay
