Detroit Marcella – Somebody's Mother lyrics

(Marcella Detroit)
>From where she stands
The world is more heartless than grand
Over the seas
It's easy to think that you're free
>From the pain
Worn and defiled
As millions of people stand by
And she can't complain
How much more can her poor body take?

And we're so civilized
These dogs of war are never kind
Just when you thought that it was safe
This lovely human race
Does it one more time

I've no right to sleep
'Cause somewhere she silently bleeds
And history smiles
She laughts at the fools who ask why?

And we're so civilized
These dogs of war are never kind
Just when you thought that it was safe
This less than human race
Does it one more time

She must be somebody's mother
She must be somebody's mother
I know somebody must love her
Oh, she must be somebody's mother
She must be somebody's mother
Someone's lover or daughter
Isn't anyone thinking of her, oh
She must be somebody's mother!!!!
