Curtis Mayfield – Mother's Son lyrics

Raining in the [Incomprehensible]
Think about a restaurant
Mother, mother's son

Think I'll make a great big kiss
Mother, mother's son

Get down and get fucked
Watch out for those junkies
Mother, mother's son

Mother's son, mother

In street with people you meet
Getting tired, want something to eat
Mother, mother's son

No, you won't be a superstar
But try to be the child you are
Mother, mother's son

Can't let fool you
I will have to school you
Mother, mother's son

Mother, mother's son

Can't get no water
When the [Incomprehensible]
Just thinking not giving
Makes life not worth living

Can't let fool you
I will have to school you
Now you want to be a superstar
But try to be the child you are
