ORIGINAL SONGTEXTE

[Verse 1: Dennis Edwards]

It was the third of September

That day I'll always remember, yes I will

'Cause that was the day, that my daddy died

I never got a chance to see him

Never heard nothin' but bad things about him

Momma I'm depending on you, to tell me the truth

Momma just hung her head and said, son

[Hook]

(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) my son, yeah

(Wherever he laid his hat was his home)

(And when he died) all he left us was (alone)

Well, well

[Verse 2: Dennis Edwards, Melvin Williams and Richard Street]

Hey momma

Is it true what they say that papa never worked a day, in his life

And momma, some bad talk goin' round town

Sayin' that papa had three outside children

And another wife, and that ain't right

I heard them talking papa doing some store front preachin'

Talking about saving souls and all the time leechin'

Dealing in dirt, and stealing in the name of the Lord

Momma just hung her head and said

[Hook]

(Papa was a rolling stone) my son

(Wherever he laid his hat was his home)

(And when he died) all he left us was (alone) hey

(Papa was a rolling stone) dadgummit

(Wherever he laid his hat was his home)

(And when he died) all he left us was (alone)

Uhh!

[Verse 3: Damon Harris and Richard Street]

Hey momma

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

Hey momma

Folks say papa never was much on thinking

Spent most of his time chasing women and drinking

Momma I'm depending on you, to tell me the truth

Momma looked up with a tear in her eye and said, son

[Hook]

(Papa was a rolling stone) well well well well

(Wherever he laid his hat was his home) hey yeah huh

(And when he died) all he left us was alone lone lone lone alone

(Papa was a rolling stone) huh huh huh huh huh huh

(Wherever he laid his hat was his home) hey yeah

(And when he died) all he left us was alone

I say yeah

[Hook]

(Papa was a rolling stone) yes he was

(Wherever he laid his hat was his home) huh huh huh

(And when he died) all he left us was alone

My daddy was

(Papa was a rolling stone) yes he was hey yeah

(Wherever he laid his hat was his home)

[Outro]

Ahhhh ha ha

ÜBERSETZUNG

[Strophe 1: Dennis Edwards]

Es war der dritte September

An diesen Tag werde ich mich immer erinnern, ja, das werde ich

Denn das war der Tag, an dem mein Daddy starb

I never got a chance to see him

Ich habe immer nur Schlechtes über ihn gehört.

Mama, ich verlasse mich auf dich, dass du mir die Wahrheit sagst.

Mama ließ ihren Kopf hängen und sagte, son

(Hook)

(Papa was a rolling stone)

(Wo immer er seinen Hut hinlegte, war sein Zuhause)

(And when he died) all he left us was (alone)

(Papa was a rolling stone) my son, yeah

(Wo immer er seinen Hut hinlegte, war sein Zuhause)

(And when he died) all he left us was (alone)

Nun, nun

(Strophe 2: Dennis Edwards, Melvin Williams und Richard Street)

Hey, Mama.

Ist es wahr, was sie sagen, dass Papa nie einen Tag in seinem Leben gearbeitet hat

Und Mama, in der Stadt gibt es böses Gerede

Sayin' that papa had three outside children

Und eine andere Frau, und das ist nicht wahr.

Ich hörte, wie sie sagten, dass Papa in einem Laden predigt.

Er redete davon, Seelen zu retten, und die ganze Zeit schmarotzte er

Er handelte mit Dreck und stahl im Namen des Herrn.

Momma just hung her head and said

(Hook)

(Papa was a rolling stone) my son

(Wherever he laid his hat was his home)

(Und als er starb) war alles, was er uns hinterließ, (allein) hey

(Papa was a rolling stone) dadgummit

(Wherever he laid his hat was his home)

(And when he died) all he left us was (alone)

Uhh!

(Strophe 3: Damon Harris und Richard Street)

Hey momma

Ich hörte, Papa nannte sich einen Tausendsassa

Sag mir, ist es das, was Papa in ein frühes Grab schickte?

Die Leute sagen, Papa bettelte, lieh und stahl

Um seine Rechnungen zu bezahlen

Hey momma

Man sagt, Papa hat nie viel nachgedacht.

Er war die meiste Zeit hinter Frauen her und trank.

Mama, ich verlasse mich darauf, dass du mir die Wahrheit sagst.

Mama sah mit einer Träne im Auge auf und sagte: "Sohn.

(Hook)

(Papa was a rolling stone) well well well well

(Wherever he laid his hat was his home) hey yeah huh

(And when he died) all he left us was alone lone lone lone alone

(Papa was a rolling stone) huh huh huh huh huh huh

(Wherever he laid his hat was his home) hey yeah

(And when he died) all he left us was alone

Ich sage ja

(Hook)

(Papa was a rolling stone) yes he was

(Wherever he laid his hat was his home) huh huh huh

(And when he died) all he left us was alone

My daddy was

(Papa was a rolling stone) yes he was hey yeah

(Wherever he laid his hat was his home)

(Outro)

Ahhhh ha ha
