What is the point of this song?

By Paul Simon
(Ooohh..)

When I was a little boy (when I was just a boy)

And the Devil would call my name (when I was just a boy)

I'd say "Now who do, (who-oo)Who do you think you're fooling?" (when I was just a boy)

I'm a consecrated boy (when I was just a bo-o-o-y)I

'm a singer in a Sunday choir (oooh)



Oh my mama loves me, she loves me

She get down on her knees and hug me (ahh a-a-ah)(oh)She loves me like a rockS

he rocks me like the rock of ages

And loves me

She love me, love me, love me, love me


When I was grown to be a man (grown to be a man)

And the Devil would call my name (grown to be a man)

I'd say "Now who do, (whooo)Who do you think you're fooling?" (grown to be a man)

I'm a consummated man (grown to be a ma-a-a-n)

I can snatch a little purity (oooh)


My mama loves me, she loves me

She get down on her knees and hug me (ahh a-a-ah)(oh)

She loves me like a rock

She rocks me like the rock of ages

And loves me

She love me, love me, love me, love me


And if I was the President (was the President)

The minute that Congress called my name (was the President)

I'd say "Now who do, (whooo)Who do you think you're fooling? (who do you think you're fooling)I've got the Presidential Seal (was the president)

I'm up on the Presidential Po-o-dium (oooh)


My mama loves me, she loves meS

he get down on her knees and hug me(oh)

She loves me like a rock

She rocks me like the rock of ages

And loves me


Fade out:She love me, love me, love me, love me(loves me like a rock)
Who wants to be loved like a rock?
Rocks are ignored.
Rocks can't eat, sleep, talk or move.
Rocks are kicked.
Rocks are thrown.
Rocks are climbed with sharp pick axes.
They have no feelings.
On the othe hand:
A diamond is called a rock.
Rocks can be painted.
There used to be pet rocks.
Firm foundations are built with rock.
Famous monuments are built with rock.
Jesus is my rock.
Yeah, maybe I would like to be loved like a rock after all.

I don't about the rock thing, but it's funny that he says Congress instead of the devil - like they are eqivalent. What a comparison :o)
