(morrissey/j.marr) Originally performed by the smiths. jeff performed it several times, usually in medley with hallelujah or with kangaroo. Oh mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head And as I climb into an empty bed - oh well, enough said I know it's over still I cling, I don't know where else I can go Over and over..... Oh mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head See the sea wants to take me, the knife wants to slit (cut) me Do you think you can help me Sad veiled bride please be happy - handsome groom give her room Loud loutish lover treat her kindly though she needs you More than she loves you - and I know it's over - still I cling I don't know where else I can go - over and over..... I know it's over and it never really began but in my heart it was so real And she even spoke to me and said "if you're so funny, then why are you on your own tonight? " "and if you're so clever then why are you on your own tonight? " "and if you're so very entertaining then why are you on your own tonight? " "and if you're so very good looking, then why do you sleep alone tonight? " I know - 'cos tonight is just like any other night - that's why you're on Your own tonight With your triumphs and your charms - while they're in each other's arms It's so easy to laugh it's so easy to hate it takes strength to be gentle And kind - over and over.... It's so easy to laugh it's so easy to hate it takes guts to be gentle and Kind - over and over.... Love is natural and real - but not for you my love not tonight my love Love is natural and real - but not for such as you and I my love Oh mother... etc.
