I didn't ignore your post. But I'd like to hear the opinions of other members on this point. (I heard for the first time that "mom" and "mama" are different in nuance.)

I agree that mama may be stronger or from a different sociolect depending on geographic context. Look at "yo'mama" jokes or any of the "african american" stereotype skits from MADtv.

sorry for being so impatient and rush >.<" well ya when I suggested the change, the thought was that the song was written in a very informal and conceited manner, so using "mamas" rather than "mums" would further enhance the formality...

I would like to hear what other people have to say too... ^^

I changed "moms" to "mamas". I had not known that "mama" has such a nuance. "Mama" is such a common word among Japanese children. Thanks.

Maybe that's what Ayu wanted to show? That these people are childish, or Ayu is trying to ridicule them by treating them like kids?

I think both suit the lyrics really well actually.

She's got a cool, edgy look in the PV, and she sings the song in a really cool way, that while somewhat making fun of them, also is done in a mature way almost. It's almost like anyone in the west, when guys come flirting or bragging, girls tend to say 'yeah? Tell it to your mom'

Yeah... in Japan, the children call their mother "Mama" right? In some other regions of the world, "mama" has a really informal and rude underlying meaning to it.. which I thought suited the song lol.

and what maj said pretty much sense too; it seems like with the "bouya-tachi" part, which could mean as "immature"... the "mama" emphasizes the childishness and immaturity lol

There are many ways of calling mother. But I feel "mama" and "okaasan" are the most common. Japanese people believe that "mama" is as same as "mother" in English.

Long ago, like before the 1950s, "mama" or alternatively spelled "momma" (esp. in the south) were commonly used as a sweet term of endearment for one's mother, but in the second half of the last century it became more slangy and sassy, and more of a slang term for a woman.

Thanks, masa!
