Written by Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus & Stig Anderson, this song appeared on ABBA’s 1975 self-titled album. According to the Mamma Mia Songfacts, ABBA’s manager Stig Anderson would often come up with titles that singers Ulvaeus and Andersson would write lyrics around, and this is an example of that. The phrase “Mamma Mia” is an Italian saying that literally means “My Mother” and is used to express surprise.

When released as a 45rpm single, In much of the world, the b-side was “Intermezzo No. 1”, an instrumental mostly played by Benny & Bjorn. In the UK, the b-side was “Tropical Loveland”, a more straight-foward pop song. The song made in the top 10 in Australia, Belgium, UK, Germany and several places, but peaked at #32 on the US charts.

I've been cheated by you ,since I don't know when
So I made up my mind, it must come to an end
Look at me now, will I ever learn
I don't know how, but I suddenly lose control
