Clean Bandit and Ellie Goulding Parodies Pres.Trump in ‘Mama’ Video: Watch, Lyrics


"Mama" is on Clean Bandit's second studio album, What Is Love? It follows hits including "Rockabye" and "Solo." and is about how the experience of falling in love (or lust) for the first time can change your relationship with yourself just as much as it changes your relationship with the other. In exploring her attraction to someone else, Ellie is discovering herself as well.


Clean Bandit and Ellie Goulding parody Donald Trump in their new “Mama” video, ruminating on how one destructive father-son relationship can negatively impact the whole planet.

How do angry men become so angry? Clean Bandit takes a look at the making of a monster in its music video for "Mama" featuring Ellie Goulding. The catchy single plays in a minor chord to sow some subtle stress, while the visual, self-directed by the UK group, watches as one young boy grows up in fear only to become a dangerous man. Specifically, the fictional boy grows up to be President of the United States, and he looks a lot like Donald Trump.

"We wrote this script about a boy whose power was taken away from him as a child and he grew up determined to take that power back," singer Grace Chatto says in a press release. "We directed it ourselves and we found it to be a really interesting experience."

"Clean Bandit - Mama Lyrics"

[Intro]
Oh mama, hola, hola, hola
Don't know what this is
Oh mama, hola, hola, hola
Oh, what do I do now?

[Verse 1]
I see my body in a different light, ay ay ay
As if I woke up in a different life, ay ay ay
Feels like I'm walking with my heart on fire
Somebody pass me the water 'cause I'm burning

[Pre-Chorus]
'Cause a little bit's turning into a lot
There's no way I'll be turning the feeling off
Guess I'm everything that I thought I was not
Tell me, tell me, ay ay ay

[Chorus]
Oh mama, hola, hola, hola
Don't know what this is
What do I do now, do now, do now
Do with all of this?
All of these new emotions
I let them out in the open
Oh mama, hola, hola, hola
Oh, what do I do now?

[Verse 2]
I've never felt so good, I feel so soft, na na na
And now I know myself, I know my spots, na na na
I didn't know that I could have these thoughts, yeah yeah
Somebody pass me the water 'cause I'm burnin'
¡Qué calor!

[Pre-Chorus]
'Cause a little bit's turning into a lot
There's no way I'll be turning the feeling off
Guess I'm everything that I thought I was not
Tell me, tell me, ay ay ay

[Chorus]
Oh mama, hola, hola, hola
Don't know what this is
What do I do now, do now, do now
Do with all of this?
All of these new emotions
I let them out in the open
Oh mama, hola, hola, hola
Oh, what do I do now?

[Bridge]
Everything I thought I knew about me's upside down
Everything is changing, but I think I love it now, ay ay ay
[Chorus]
Oh mama, hola, hola, hola
Don't know what this is
What do I do now, do now, do now
Do with all of this?
All of these new emotions
I let them out in the open
Oh mama, hola, hola, hola
Oh, what do I do now?

[Outro]
All of these new emotions
I let them out in the open
Oh mama, hola, hola, hola
Oh, what do I do now?
