McChildhood (McHeart, McLove, McMother)

This song is by Art Rush and appears on the album Macquarie Centre (2008).

Amy went vegan
When she was 16
She swore off corporate things
Amy reads books now
Amy checks lists
Amy learns to sing

Now changing your
Lifestyle is hard
But swearing off Maccas is easy
So that's the first thing she did
And she hasn't eaten
There in a year

There's always an alternative
That's what she told her friends
There's always somewhere better
Just around the corner
But social situations
Drag her back into McDonalds
While she doesn't eat a bit
She has to admit
She misses that shit

Going to Maccas
The very first time
When she was 5
She was so excited
Her father's shoulders
Carried her in
And the lights were bright
And the people smiled

She had Fanta
She called it Red Coke
She watched the ice rink
From the window
Pretty older girls
With the older boys
Going round and round
As the meat went down her throat

There's always an alternative
That's what she told her friends
There's always somewhere better
Just around the corner
But social situations
Drag her back into McDonalds
While she doesn't eat a bit
She has to admit
She misses that shit

Associations in her mind
Deeper than she realised
Subconscious links were made
Twixt golden arch and happy joys

Going on road trips
When she was 7, 8 and 9
With her mom and dad and brother
Hours in the car together

The main attraction centre stage
That brightened up their midday
And their midnight
Even in mid-fight
They would look forward to Maccas
Just around the corner

There's always an alternative
That's what she told her friends
There's always somewhere better
Just around the corner
But social situations
Drag her back into McDonalds
While she doesn't eat a bit
She has to admit
She misses that shit

McChildhood, McHeart
McLove, McMother
I love you McMother
More than I realise
I love you McMother
When I look in your greasy eyes

(Comfort food
Familiarity, stability)

I love you McMother
More than I realise
I love you McMother
When I look in your greasy eyes
