"Take Your Mama" is a song by American band Scissor Sisters and is the second track on their self-titled debut album (see 2004 in music). It was released March 29, 2004 as a single in the UK, peaking at #17 in the UK Singles Chart (see 2004 in British music). It also saw considerable success internationally, notably in New Zealand, where it reached #11 in the New Zealand Top 40 Singles Chart. The song was included in the soundtrack to FIFA Football 2005.

In Australia, the song was ranked #23 on Triple J's Hottest 100 of 2004.

The song was written by Jason Sellards and Scott Hoffman. The song's lyrics depict the struggles of being a young gay male adult raised in a somewhat conservative environment, and the hardships of admitting one's sexuality to their mother.[citation needed]
