Mother do you think they'll drop the bomb ?
Mother do you think they'll like this song ?
Mother do you think they'll try to break my balls ?
Ooooh, mother should i build a wall ?
Mother should i run for president ?
Mother should i trust the government ?
Mother will they put me in the firing line ?
Oooh is it just a waste of time ?

Hush now baby, baby don't you cry.
Mama's gonna make all of your nightmares come true.
Mama's gonna put all of her fears into you.
Mama's gonna keep you right here under her wing.
She won't let you fly but she might let you sing.
Mama will keep baby cosy and warm.
Ooooh babe,
Ooooh babe,
Ooooh babe,
Of course mama's gonna help build the wall !

Mother do you think she's good enough,
For me?
Mother do you think she's dangerous,
To me?
Mama will they tear little boy apart?
Oooh,
Mother will she break my heart?

Hush now baby, baby don't you cry.
Mama's gonna check out all your girlfriends for you.
Mama won't let anyone dirty get through.
Mama's gonna wait up untill you get in.
Mama will always find out where you've been.
Mama's gonna keep baby healthy and clean.
Ooooh babe,
Ooooh babe,
Ooooh babe,
You'll always be a baby to me !

Mother, did it need to be so high ?
