Mother

This song is by Moloko and appears on the album Things to Make and Do (2000).

Mother dear you'll never be my sister
Seek the advice of the solicitor
Mother dear you'll never be my sister

Show me empathy
Californian sensibilities
For all my problems spring form my trouble upbringing
We need to go right back to the beginning
Dispossessed from the outset
What you need is precisely what you get
Mother dear it should be you that's sitting here on this couch ouch

Mother dear you'll never be my sister
Seek the advice of the solicitor
Mother dear you'll never be my sister
On my shoulder you're a chip
On my foot you're a blister
Mother dear you'll never be my sister
Seek the advice of the solicitor
Mother dear you'll never be my sister

So tell me what am I gonna do
They tell me that maybe I could sue
And oh how the many were corrupted by the few
So I dance the mambo and the cha cha cha
I run you over in my beautiful car
Dearest darling mummy dearest
We can't bear to have to near us

Mother dear you'll never be my sister
Seek the advice of the solicitor
Mother dear you'll never be my sister
On my shoulder you're a chip
On my foot you're a blister
Mother dear you'll never be my sister
Seek the advice of the solicitor
Mother dear you'll never be my sister

The blame lies in the family name
It's not my fault I did as I was taught
Escape to Mongolia or Timbuktu
I know somehow somewhere I'll be bumping into you

You see I'm blameless
I had a mother who was shameless
No wonder my life collapsed
See I'm aimless
With all this analysis
I think I'm having a relapse

Mother dear you'll never be my sister
Seek the advice of the solicitor
Mother dear you'll never be my sister
On my shoulder you're a chip
On my foot you're a blister
Mother dear you'll never be my sister
Seek the advice of the solicitor
Mother dear you'll never be my sister

We love you we do
We've taken advice
We may sue

You see I'm blameless
I shall remain nameless
You can't run away from the past
I know what her game is
But I've forgotten what my name is
I'm just too frightened to ask

Tell me what did you expect
What you made is
Precisely what you get (x3)
