Movies Are A Mother To Me

This song is by Loudon Wainwright III and appears on the album Loudon Wainwright III (1970).

The movies are a mother to me
There's nothing like a movie
To move me back to sanity
When I've gone insane

A rainy Tuesday or a Saturday night
When I messes with me and then we start a fight
We both head for the flicks
Things come out alright
We both enjoy that show

When two brothers get bad and push each other around
A mother can say things straight
She can handle her boys
Mum can calm them down
She's got that special trait

Sometimes I am my own enemy
Sometimes my own enemy it is me
Then, my enemy and me go see a good movie
We come out friends again

There's nothing like the silver screen
To patch things up, to intervene
To bridge the gap that lies between
Loudon and himself
