Mother don't sit
Mother don't stand
Mother don't send me

Smoking grass go into the movie
The ambulance is after you too
Promise we're gonna go to New York City
Sorry about the fight in front of you
Angry women said 'motherfucker' on TV
Sister come and lay your head on me,
I can see you haven't had any sleep in a long time.

That baby's gonna be so easy on me
Never see his smile
Never see his face

Smoking grass go into the movie
The ambulance is after you too
Promise we're gonna go to New York City
Sorry about the fight in front of you
Angry women said 'motherfucker' on TV
Father said he was gonna give me something
He gave me hate

Mother don't sit
Mother don't stand
Mother don't send me

The coat is always on
Because it's always cold
We always ? when she wants to hear it
A lot of times we would just starve
They recognize the color of the smear
Maybe I'll listen and you can read my mind
I'm sorry please don't be mad Brother can't even speak
He's got a tongue and two legs to walk on and he can leave
Brother is old and grey
Brother is old and grey
Brother is old and grey
And he's only
He's only seventeen
We recognize the color of the smear
Maybe we will all listen when we are all under
Maybe we will all listen when we are all under

Father said he was gonna give me something
He gave me hate

Mother don't sit
Mother don't stand
Mother please don't send me

Angry women said motherfucker on tv
Maybe I'll listen and you can read my mind
I'm sorry please don't be mad
