"Mama Say" is the debut single of the Bloodhound Gang. It was originally released as a single from the band's 1994 EP, Dingleberry Haze, but is usually associated with the 1995 album Use Your Fingers. The single features the song remixed by God Lives Underwater.

The song samples Michael Jackson's 1983 single "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" in the repeated line "Mama say, mama sa mama cu sa" in its chorus; the title is taken from both this sample and the song "Soul Makossa", which inspired the Jackson tune. Another credited sample is from Duran Duran's "Save A Prayer".
