Mama, why did you do it?
Mama, who drove you to it?

Was it the pigs in grey suits persecuting you?
Un-civil servants, unconcerned that's how they frighten you
Life is nothing much to lose
It's just so lonely here without you

Mama, why did you do it?
Mama, who drove you to it?

Spare priggish money-men
Who scared the life out of you
Bailiffs with bad-breath
I will slit their throats for you

Life is nothing much to lose
It's just so lonely here without you, Mama

Life is nothing much to lose
It's just so lonely here without you, so
We're gonna run to you
We're gonna come to you
We're gonna lie down
Beside you, Mama
We're gonna be with you
We're gonna join you
We're gonna lie down
Beside you, Mama
And we will be safe and sheltered in our graves
We'll come before you
And we will kiss you
By way of one final hug, Mama
