"I'll Always Love My Mama" is a 1973 single by the Philly soul group The Intruders. Released from their album Save the Children, it is a common song on Mothers Day.

Written by Gamble & Huff and co-written by McFadden & Whitehead, the song reached #36 on the pop chart and #6 on the R&B charts in the summer of 1973. It was recorded as a long LP track, which was broken down into Parts 1 and 2 for the single release. The song's memorable lyrics include:

I'll always love my mama, she's my favorite girl
I'll always love my mama, she brought me in this world

"I'll Always Love My Mama" was inspired by Kenny Gamble's mother, Ruby who died in 2012.
