Lookin' for to save my, save my soul
Lookin' in the places where no flowers grow
Lookin' for to fill that god shaped hole
Mother, mother sucking rock and roll, mother
Holy dunc, space junk comin' in for the splash
Been around back, been around front
We’ve got wild white funky dopes on punk staring into the flash
Been around back, been around front
Lookin' for the baby Jesus under the trash
Been around back, been around front
Mother, mother sucking rock and roll, mother
Mother hopping sugar popping dropping rock and roll (Happy mother), mother
Mother, mother, mother
Mother, mother, mother

Mother, am I still your son
You know I'm waiting for so long to hear you say so
Mother, you left and made me someone
Now I'm still a child but no one tells me no

Lookin' for a sound that's gonna drown out the world
Been around back, been around front
Lookin' for the father of my two little girls
Been around back, been around front
Got the swing, got the sway, got my straw in lemonade
Been around back, been around front
I’m still looking for the face I had before the world was made
Been around back, been around front
Mother, mother sucking rock and roll, mother
Bubble poppin', sugar droppin' rock and roll, mother
Mother sucking, fucking rock and roll, mother
Mother, mother, mother
Mother, mother, mother

Soothe me mother
Move me father
Move me brother
Woo me sister
Soothe me mother
Move me father
Show me mother
Show me mother
Show me mother
Show me mother
Show me mother
Show me mother
