  • In a patent leather life
    I was foolish, you were right
    All night rookies pass the time
    Looking for somewhere to go
    Shiny boots are up their thighs

    Mother in the night
    Calling you, calling you
    Mother in the night
    Where are you, where are you now?
    Mother's left the building
    We're the missing children
    Mother in the night
    Where are you, where are you tonight?

    Mother, may I stay all night?
    Lift your curfew like the light
    Collars turned against the cold
    I'm looking for someone to hold
    In your packed-in-leather night

    Mother in the night
    Calling you, calling you
    Mother in the night
    Where are you, where are you now?
    Mother's left the building
    We're the missing children
    Mother in the night
    Where are you, where are you?

    Now that I can't remember
    I need you more than ever
    Why can't we be together always?

    Mother in the night
    Mother in the night

    Mother's left the building
    We're the missing children
    Mother in the night
    Where are you, where are you now?

    Mother in the night
    Calling you, calling you
    Mother in the night
    Where are you, where are you tonight? Writer/s: BEN PHILLIPS, DEBORAH HARRY, KATO KHANDWALA
