Lyrics:
It ain't easy, livin' like a
       Gypsy
       Tell ya, honey, how it feels
       I've been dreamin' floatin' down stream
       And losin' touch with all that's real
       Whole lotta lover, keepin' undercover
       Never knowin' where you been
       You've been fadin', always out paradin'
       Keep the touch with mama kin

You've always got your tail on the wag
       Stittin' fire from your mouth just like a dragon
       You act like a perpetual drag
       You better check it out or someday soon
       You're gonna climb back on the wagon

It ain't easy livin'like you wanna
       It's so hard to find peace of mind (Yes, it is)
       The way I see it
       You got to say sheeit
       But don't forget to drop me a line
     Bald as an egg et eighteen
       And workin' for your daddy's just a drag
       You still stuff your mouth with those beans
       You better check it out or someday soon
       You're gonna climb back on the wagon
     
Keep in touch with mama kin
       Tell her where you gone and been
       Livin' out your fantasy
       Sleepin' late and smokin' tea
       Keep in touch with mama kin
       Tell her where you gone and been
       Livin' out your fantasy
       Sleepin' late and smokin' tea
       Ooh no!

It ain't easy livin'like you wanna
       It's so hard to find peace of mind (Yes, it is)
       The way I see it
       You got to say sheeit
       But don't forget to drop me a line
       Bald as an egg et eighteen
       And workin' for your daddy's just a drag
       You still stuff your mouth with those beans
       You better check it out or someday soon
       You're gonna climb back on the wagon
     
Keep in touch with mama kin
       Tell her where you gone and been
       Livin' out your fantasy
       Sleepin' late and smokin' tea
       Keep in touch with mama kin
       Tell her where you gone and been
       Livin' out your fantasy
       Sleepin' late and smokin' tea
       Ooh no!


Quotes:
In the beginning of 'Mama Kin' we added the sound of firecrackers. If you listen closely, before the song starts, while Axl is saying, "This is a song about your fucking mother!" you can hear the going off ["My Appetite for Destruction", 2010].

'Mama Kin' performed live at The Ritz, February 2, 1988:
