Yo' Mama By Frank Zappa

Maybe you should stay with yo' mama
She could do your laundry 'n' cook for you
Maybe you should stay with yo' mama
You're really kinda stupid 'n' ugly too
[repeats]

You ain't really made for bein' out in the street
Ain't much hope for a fool like you
'Cause if you play the game, you will get beat

Maybe you should stay with yo' mama
She could do your laundry 'n' cook for you
Maybe you should stay with yo' mama
You're really kinda stupid 'n ugly too
And
You should never smoke in pajamas
You might start a fire 'n' burn yer face
Maybe you'll return to Managua
You could go unnoticed in such a place 
Man Zappa was RAD!!!

I know nothing of Frank zappa except these lyrics. Yes there are people who would string me up for saying that but sometimes you just skate through life and shit misses you. Based on these lyrics alone I don't see what all the fuss is about. I suppose he thinks he knows what's best for his friend when he says stay at home Cuz the world is too much for you. It seems a bit arrogant and presumptuous to assume you know what's best for someone. Keeping this person at home with mama won't give much room for growth. Maybe he wrote it when he was feeling anger twords this person and this was a way to vent. Anyway I reckon this song wouldn't inspire me much.

I had actually thought this song was to a lover and he is saying "hey, if you are not mature enough to have a relationship go back to yo mama." Or if it is a friend who has not grown up he is saying "hey man, i've grown up, you havent, go back to your Mama.
