From the Bible to the popular song There's one theme that has moved right along From all the things that bide us good The one best thing is motherhood There was a guy, although it seems Who once took this measurement to extremes He loved his mother and she loved him And yet this story is rather grim
There once was a man named Oedipus Rex You may have heard about his odd complex His name appears in Freud's Index because he Loved his mother! His rivals used to say quite a bit that As a Monarch he was most un-fit, But sure and all you have to admit that he Loved his Mother!
Yes he loved his mother like no other His daughter was his sister and his son was his brother One thing on which you can depend is He sure knew who a boy's best friend is When he found out what he had done He tore his eyes out one by one The tragic end to a loyal son who Loved his mother
So be sweet and kind to Mother, Now and then have a chat Buy her some flowers, or some candy Or a brand new hat But, Brother you better let it go at that Or you might end up with an odd complex (complex) And You might end up like old Oedipus (I'd rather marry a duck-billed platypus) Then end up like old Oedipus Rex!
