The Dead Weather – Treat Me Like Your Mother lyrics

Don't act like you can't act
I always think you do it
You better learn to shake hands
Treat me like your mother

Don't act like you can't act
Stand up like a man
You better learn to shake hands
Treat me like your mother

You came up, too late
You came up, too late now
You came up, too late
To do a thing

Come on look me in the eye
You wanna try to tell a lie
I'll bet you can't and you know why?
I'm just like your mother

Look me in the eye now
You wanna try to tell a lie
You can't and you know why?
I'm just like your mother

You came up, too late
You came up, too late now
You came up, too late
Play dumb, play dead, play straight

Who's got it figured out?
{play dumb, play dead, play straight}
Who's got it figured out? Play straight
Time to manipulate

M-A-N-I-P-you-late
M-A-N-I-P-you-late
M-A-N-I-P-you-late
M-A-N-I-P-you-late
Am I too,
Am I late
Am I too
Am I late
Am I, am I, am I, am I,
Am I too
Late

Who's got it figured out
Left right, left right got it figured out
Who'd got it figured out play straight

Stand up like a man
You better learn to shake hands
Look me in the eye now
Treat me like your mother

Come on, look me in the eye
You wanna try to tell a lie?
You can't and you know why?
I'm just like your mother

Play dumb, play dead
Tryin' to manipulate

You blink when you breathe an d you breathe when you lie
You blink when you lie
You blink when you breathe an d you breathe when you lie
You blink when you lie
You blink when you breathe an d you breathe when you lie
You blink when you lie

Who's got it figured out
Left right, left right got it figured out
Who's got it figured out, play straight
Tryin to manipulate
Who's got it figured out
{Left, left right} left right left right
Who's got it figured out, play straight
Tryin to manipulate

You blink when you breathe an d you breathe when you lie
You blink when you lie
Who's got it figured out, play straight

    I think it helps if you try to over analyze it and find a deeper meaning in it than what was intended. (thick layer of sarcasm, but I hope all the 10-12-year-olds reading this can see through that.) keep reading into stuff, though. It probably is about "someone trying to find a person whom is the opposite of their mom, but in the end, always turns out to be like their mother. "
