“Hey Mamma” lyrics – Sunstroke Project (Moldova, Eurovision 2017)

3

After previously representing their country at Eurovision 2010 with “Run Away”, Sunstroke Project are returning to the contest this year with the quirky dance song “Hey Mamma”.

In case you thought the lyrics are about Mother, you couldn’t be more wrong. Actually the “mamma” in question is an overprotective “mother-in-law”, who is preventing the young man from having fun with her daughter.

Blessed with the unique presence and sound of Epic Sax Guy, Sunstroke Project won Moldova’s national selection and will therefore grace the Eurovision stage once again this year. The quirky song also had a funny staging at the national final. The three band members were flanked by three female backing vocalists wearing wedding dresses, in tune with the lyrics of the song, singing into bouquets of flowers. Because Moldova!

“Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad/If you knew me, you’d be surprised”, lead vocalist Sergey Ialovitsky sings, and we couldn’t agree more.

“Hey Mamma” – Sunstroke Project

“Hey Mamma” lyrics – Sunstroke Project (Moldova, Eurovision 2017)

Hey, hey you
You will never hide what you think of me
I see your clue
Know, you worry, but it don’t meant to be
Hey, hey you
It’s your girl and maybe should sleep at home
But I’ll steal her alone.

And I say…
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so down
I am not that unfounded boy
Mamma, mamma don’t be so down
All it keeps going round and round
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
If you knew me, you’d be surprised
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
She’ll be back home till sunrise

Like the sun in the sea
She will disappear tonight with me
And I will not anymore
Do what other guys did before

Hey, hey you
It’s your girl and maybe should sleep at home
But I’ll steal her alone

And I say…
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so down
I am not that unfounded boy
Mamma, mamma don’t be so down
All it keeps going round and round
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
If you knew me, you’d be surprised
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
She’ll be back home till sunrise
