(rod stewart, ian mclagan)Mother don’t you recognize your son, ooh hooComing home, yeah yeahGetting home, ’cause I failed you mother, hmm-mmmI’ll be there in the mornin’If you have me backThe rent up here is much too highFor a room without a tapA room without a tap, hooI’ll be early in the morningAnd I’ll find my way back homeBack home bad ’n’ ruinWith my tail between my legsTail between my legsAnd I’ll be so tiredI’ll be so tired, now listenI’ll be early tomorrow morningAnd I’ll fall down off my planeDon’t be embarrassed motherBy your ugly worn-out son, hmmYour ugly worn-out son.So just let me warn youMother, you won’t recognize me nowMother, you won’t recognize me nowMother, you won’t recognize me now, hooAnd I’ll be down on cannon[? ] streetPassport in my handShould you could not recognize meI’ve heavily made-up eyesMomma, you won’t recognize me nowBrother, you won’t recognize me nowHello thereSister, you won’t recognize me nowMother, you won’t recognize me nowOoh, hooSo mother when you’ve seen meDon’t forget I’m your boy tooI know my brother has done you proudHe’s one foot in the graveMother don’t you recognize me now ? I’m a burglar in the first degreeBut it don’t seem to worry meI’ll be so tired, so tiredI’ll be so tired, so tiredSo tired
