Oh mother

 

 

I draw you a picture,

I sing you a song,

I’ve been the only one for you,

since I were born.

 

You look; you smile,

You listen and wonder,

But your eyes move to him when he enters,

You think his words are kinder.

 

But you never cry,

Oh mother, oh mother,

Why?

Why?

Oh mother, oh mother

Do you never cry?

 

Me and you, you say

you and I, I correct

together ’til the end, I think

it would be perfect.

 

You promise me,

but you beg him,

I belong to you, never alone

but you belong to him.

 

But you never cry,

Oh mother, oh mother,

Why?

Why?

Oh mother, oh mother

Do you never cry?

 

I’d sprint for your love,

I’d jump for your joy,

do you think he wants you more?

That man, that boy?

 

I’d scream.

I’d run and hide.

Your silence scares us

We shouldn’t be on this ride.

 

But you never cry,

Oh mother, oh mother,

Why?

Why?

Oh mother, oh mother

Do you never cry?

 

I live for you,

you live for him.

Mummy don’t leave me,

the man’s not worth the whim.

 

His words are kinder, you think

my words are true, I know.

His love was not right

if only you knew, oh mother, ohh.
