lyrics

she’s my mother dark and green
says i’m growing like a weed
oh, my mother teaches me,
she says “boy you better listen up”

doesn’t matter, nice or day
she’s got wisdom either way
drink your water, clean your plate
she says “boy you better listen up”

i know my mother loves me, ‘cause my mother loves us all
my mother brings me higher and she never lets me fall
and if my father tells me to go and sleep it off,
i have to tell my father he was wrong

no matter, she’s my mother, ball and chain
air is heavy on my brain
drowning in a drop of rain,
she says “boy you better listen up”

mother tells me you’ve done wrong
mother sings a sorry song
mother knew it all along
she says “boy you better listen up”

i hope my mother loves me, ‘cause she never lets me in
my mother is an angel with a few forgiven sins
my father never loved her, he was always quick to judge
my father is a bastard that contaminates my blood

no matter,
she’s my mother dark and green
says i’m growing like a weed
oh, my mother teaches me,
she says “boy you better listen up”

scared of my own shadow again..
