Mother – 23 Jan 06


Mother

by

Roger Waters with Sinead O Connor Live in Berlin

Mother, do ya think they’ll drop the bomb?
Mother, do ya think they’ll like this song?
Mother, do ya think they’ll try to break my balls?
Ooooh, ahhh, Mother, should I build The Wall?
Mother, should I run for President?
Mother, should I trust the government?
Mother, will they put me in the firing line?
Ooooh, ahhh, is it just a waste of time?

Mother: Hush, now, baby, baby, don’t you cry.
Mama’s gonna make all of your nightmares come true.
Mama’s gonna put all of her fears into you.
Mama’s gonna keep you right here under her wing.
She won’t let you fly, but she might let you sing.
Mama’s gonna keep baby cozy and warm.
Ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe,
Ooh, babe, of course, Mama’s gonna help build The Wall.

Mother, do ya think she’s good enough — for me?
Mother, do ya think she’s dangerous — to me?
Mother, will she tear your little boy apart?
Ooooh, ahhh, Mother, will she break my heart?

Mother: Hush, now, baby, baby, don’t you cry.
Mama’s gonna check out all your girlfriends for you.
Mama won’t let anyone dirty get through.
Mama’s gonna wait up until you get in.
Mama will always find out where you’ve been.
Mama’s gonna keep baby healthy and clean.
Ooooh, babe, ooooh babe,
Ooooh, babe, you’ll always be baby to me

Mother, did it need to be so high?
