Nick Cave – Mama's Boy lyrics

I was born in a motel room
The night my Daddy lost his job
Just after one, he pulled a gun
And blew the brains out of some poor slob

They call me mamma...
They call me mamma...
They call me mamma's boy
But I don't care

I'll be a mamma...
I'll be a mamma...
I'll be a mamma's boy
Since Daddy got... The electric chair.
