Mama Told Me (Not To Come) – Three Dog Night – Drum Sheet Music
Three Dog Night 's cover topped the US pop singles chart. Tom Jones and the Stereophonics ' version also hit No. Newman says that the song was inspired by his own lighthearted reflection on the Los Angeles music scene of the late s. As with most Newman songs, he assumes a character — in this song the narrator is a sheltered and extraordinarily straight-laced young man, who recounts what is presumably his first "wild" party in the big city, is shocked and appalled by marijuana smoking , whiskey drinking, loud music, and — in the chorus of the song — recalls his "Mama told [him] not to come".
