When I was a little boy (When I was just a boy)
And the Devil'd call my name (When I was just a boy)
I say, "Now who do" (Who)
"Who do you think you're fooling?" (When I was just a boy)
I'm a consecrated boy (When I was just a boy)
Singer in a Sunday choir
Oh, my mama loves me, she loves me
She get down on her knees and hug me
And 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

When I was grown to be a man (Grown to be a man)
Mm, and the Devil would call my name (Grown to be a man)
I say "Now who do" (Who)
"Who do you think you're fooling?" (Grown to be a man)
I'm a consummated man (Grown to be a man)
I can snatch a little purity
My mama loves me, she loves me
She get down on her knees and hug me
Oh, she loves me like a rock
She rock 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 the Congress call my name (Was the President)
I say "Now, who do" (Who)
"Who do you think you're fooling?" (Who do you think you're fooling?)
I got the Presidential seal (Was the President)
I'm up on the Presidential podium
My mama loves me, she loves me
She get down on her knees and hug me
Oh, and she loves me like a rock
She rock me like the rock of ages
And love me
She love me, love me, love me, love me
Love me like a rock
She love me, love me, love me, love me
Love me like a rock
She love me, love me, love me, love me
Love me like a rock
Whoo, yeah
Love me like a rock
La-la-la-la-la-la
Rock me like the rock of ages
Love me like a rock
Love me like a rock
Rock me like the rock of ages
Love me like a rock
Love me like a rock
La-la-la-la-la-la
Rock me like the rock of ages
Love me like a rock
Love me like a rock
Whoo-hoo
Rock me like the rock of ages
Love me like a rock
Love me like a rock
Rock me like the rock of ages
Love me like a rock
Love me like a rock
Rock me like the rock of ages
Love me like a rock
Love me like a rock
Rock me like the rock of ages

I always thought it was kinda corny
Love this song!  so much better than the recent Paul Simon album.  I'm not liking that song about having a backstage pass.

Not a bad idea! 

Love this album!! 
Always despised this song
I'm about eleven or twelve, this is all over the radio, and on a visit to Coffeyville, Kansas, when I start singing along, my aunt, my mother, and my cousin Toni can't help but join in, all nodding it's clever but silly, and totally fun, and catchy as hell. Music memories!
Paul's best pre-Graceland solo album, IMO.
Chock full o' tasty tunes!
3rd!
I am a rock, i am an island. but she loves me like a rocky outcrop - i dunno what i'm talking about (clearly)!
A staple of AM radio in the 70's along with Kodachrome.
Paul Simon radio station?
