Mama told me not to come "is a song written by Randy Newman.

Newman wrote this song at first for Eric Burdon, but Burdon was soon followed by, for example, P.J. ProbyLou Rawls and Tom Jones with Stereophonics. The song is about the music scene of Los Angeles in the years ' 60 with parties where anything smoked, sniffed and sprayed was. The song is sung from the head person of outside LA in the "Lake of perdition" comes. Burdon took it on, to spend it as single, but pulled it back eventually. The later it was included on his album Eric is here with two other songs by Newman: I think it's gonna rain today and Wait till next year. Newman took it myself In 1970 on for his album 12 Songs including Ry Cooder on the slideguitar.Newman had nothing of his own, by the way, want to attract; He had already lived in Hollywood .
