“Mother” – Pink…

“Mother” – from the album “Pink Floyd The Wall” by Roger Waters

“Mother, do you think they’ll drop the bomb?
Mother, do you think they’ll like this song?
Mother, do you think they’ll try to break my balls?
Ooooo. Mother, should I build the wall?

Mother, should I run for president?
Mother, should I trust the government?
Mother, will they put me in the firing line?
Oooooh aaah. Is it just a waste of time?

Hush now, baby. Baby, don’t you cry.
Mamma’s gonna make all your nightmares come true.
Mamma’s gonna put all of her fears into you.
Mamma’s gonna keep you right here under her wing.
She won’t let you fly, but she might let you sing.
Mama’s gonna keep baby cozy and warm.
Ooooh babe. Ooooh babe. Oooooh babe,
Of course mama’s gonna help build a wall.

Mother, do you think she’s good enough — for me?
Mother, do you think she’s dangerous — to me?
Mother, will she tear your little boy apart?
Ooooh aaah. Mother, will she break my heart?

Hush now, baby. Baby, don’t you cry.
Mama’s gonna check out all your girlfriends for you.
Mama won’t let anyone dirty get through.
Mama’s gonna wait up until you get in.
Mama will always find out where you’ve been.
Mama’s gonna keep baby healthy and clean.
Ooooh babe. Oooh babe. Oooh babe,
You’ll always be baby to me.

Mother, did it need to be so high?”

The Song in a Sentence

“As Pink grows more curious about the world and his own individuality, his mother inadvertently adds bricks to his wall through her over-protection and dogged need to keep him safe.” http://www.thewallanalysis.com/main/mother.html
