  The song you are inquiring about is "Mama Get The Hammer" which is
performed by Barrence Whitfield and the Savages on an LP by the same
name.  (Mamou M-11)  A truly outrageous band from Boston I believe. I
hope this helps. I have this album in my collection so if you have
trouble locating a copy, I could make a tape for you if you wish. Let me
know how you come along in your search.
