Mama I’m Coming Home è una ballata metal incisa da Ozzy Osbourne nel 1991 con l’album No More Tears e scritta da questi assieme al frontman dei Motorhead, Lemmy, il quale collaborò ad alcune altre tracce del disco.
Il titolo, così come il testo, è indirizzato alla moglie nonchè manager Sharon Osbourne, alla quale Ozzy preannunciava con essa un suo imminente ritiro dalle scene.
E’ stato l’unico singolo della sua carriera solista ad entrare nella classifica americana, al 28esimo posto.
