    sözleri vermeden gitmeyelim:

    it was the third of september
    that day i'll always remember
    'cause that was the day my daddy died
    i never got a chance to see him
    never heard nothin' but bad things about him
    mama, i'm depending on you to tell me the tuth
    and mama just hung her head and said, son

    chorus:
    papa was a rolling stone
    wherever he laid his hat was his home
    and when he died
    all he left us was alone
    papa was a rolling stone
    wherever he laid his hat was his home
    and when he died
    all he left us was alone

    hey, mama, is it true what they say
    that papa never worked a day in his life?
    and mama, some bad talk goin' around goin' around town
    sayin' that papa had three outside children and another wife
    and that ain't right
    hey, talk about papa doing some storefront preaching
    talking about saving your soul
    and all the time leaching
    dealing in debt and stealing in the name of the lord
    mama, i'm depending on you to tell me the truth
    and mama hung her head and said

    papa was a rolling stone
    wherever he laid his hat was his home
    and when he died
    all he left us was alone
    papa was a rolling stone
    wherever he laid his hat was his home
    and when he died
    all he left us was alone

    hey mama i heard papa called himself a jack of all trades
    tell me is that what sent papa to an early grave?
    folks say papa would beg, borrow, steal to pay his bills
    folks say papa wasn't much on thinkin'
    spent most of his life chasin' women and drinking
    mama, i'm depending on you to tell me the truth
    and mama looked up with a tear in her eye and said, son

    papa was a rolling stone
    wherever he laid his hat was his home
    and when he died
    all he left us was alone
    papa was a rolling stone
    wherever he laid his hat was his home
    and when he died
    all he left us was alone

  • şarkı hakkında ilginç bir nokta da şarkıda belirtilen "3 eylül" tarihinin vokalist dennis edwards'ın babasının ölüm tarihi oluşudur. dennis edwards, (aslında şarkı the temptations için yazılmış olmasa da) norman whitfield'ın bu dizeyle kendisine saygısızlık ettiğine ikna olmuş, zaten whitfield'ın vokalleri arka plana itip kendi prodüktörlük yöntemlerini ön plana çıkarmasına kıl olan adam sinir küpüne dönmüştür. bu da yetmemiş, whitfield stüdyodayken dennis edwards'a "it was the 3rd of september / that day i'll always remember" dizesini sürekli tekrarlattırmıştır. en sonunda güçlü sesiyle tanınan edwards, o anlık sinirinden buruk bir sesle dizeye girince whitfield amacına ulaşmış, "aferin evladım oldu" demiştir. bu olayın aslında whitfield'ın nasıl mükemmeliyetçi bir müzisyen olduğunu göstermek gerekirken whitfield'ın temptations'ın prodüktörlük koltuğundan kovulmasındaki sebeplerden biri olmuştur sonradan.
  • eminemin mockingbird adlı şarkısında geçen bir dizedir aynı zamanda. papa was a rolling stone/ mama developed a habit şeklinde devam eder gider
  • bir was not was yorumu vardır ki dillere destan.en kralı, en şahanesi.

    hikayeyi birde anketçinin dilinden analtırsak;
