Mother

Album: Synchronicity (1983)
  • Well the telephone is ringing,
    Is that my mother on the phone?
    Telephone is ringing,
    Is that my mother on the phone?
    The telephone is screaming,
    Won't she leave me alone?
    The telephone is ringing,
    Is that my mother on the phone?

    Well every girl that I go out with
    Becomes my mother in the end.
    Every girl I go out with
    Becomes my mother in the end.
    Well I hear my mother calling,
    But I don't need her as a friend.
    Well every girl I go out with
    Becomes my mother in the end.

    Oh, oh mother
    Oh mother dear please listen
    And don't devour me.
    Oh mother dear please listen
    Don't devour me.
    Oh women please have mercy
    Let this poor boy be.
    Oh mother dear please listen
    And don't devour me.
    Oh mother

    Well the telephone is ringing
    Is that my mother on the phone?
    Telephone is ringing
    Is that my mother on the phone?
    The telephone is screaming,
    Won't she leave me alone?
    The telephone is ringing,
    Is that my mother on the phone?
