Dig little digger, don't be shy
You saw your mother with another guy
You think you'll tell her that she's one of a kind, you say
My Mother is mine

You put your trucks up on the bed next to him
So he can get a better look at them, you say
This ones my favorite one, this one you can't have
I got it from my Dad, you say
I got it from my Dad

Now you're thinking little thoughts about it
Taking every inch of him in
What does it mean when something changes how it's always been
And in your head you keep repeating the line
My Mother is mine

I've done the damage, the damage is done
I pray to God that I'm the damaged one
In all these grown-up complications that you don't understand
I hope you can, someday
I hope you can

And now you're thinking little thoughts about it
Taking every inch of him in
What does it mean when something changes how it's always been
And in your head you keep repeating the line
My Mother is mine

And now you're thinking little thoughts about it
Taking every inch of him in
What does it mean when something changes how it's always been
And in your head you keep repeating the line
My Mother is mine
