lyrics

Mama can you tell me please
something that's puzzling me?
Just a simple question, just a simple need
Tel me where do you keep your joy?

Joy where do you keep your joy?
Mama tell me.
Joy sweet, sweet joy,
oh glory be.
---------
Joy where do you keep your joy?
Mama tell me.
Joy sweet, sweet joy,
oh glory be.

Mama that's alright by me
But can you tell me please
Why the answer to my question is still eluding me
Tell me where do you keep your joy

Joy where do you keep your joy?
Mama tell me.
Joy sweet, sweet joy,
oh glory be.

My joy is not a mystery
It's everywhere I happen to be
A simple question and my simple reply
Oh my do I keep my joy.

Joy where do you keep your joy?
Mama tell me.
Joy sweet, sweet joy,
oh glory be.

Joy where do you keep your joy?
Mama tell me.
Joy sweet, sweet joy,
oh glory be.
