Mothers and daughters

Mothers and daughters

She thinks she knows you
She thinks she owns you
She wants everything to be
The way she told you
Of course, she loves you
Worries about you
She?ll smother you till you?re chokin?
Tell me, don?t you

Say Mama, tell me why
Has pleasure got to rhyme with sacrifice?
You had your ways
I have mine
Your little girl?s a woman
Don?t you realise?

Of course she loves you
She adores you
She?ll smother you till you?re chokin?
Tell me, don?t you

She?ll try to cage you
She?ll enrage you
Walking round your life
Deciding for you
Sometimes she?ll praise you
Sometimes she?ll scorn you
Her dreams from yesterday could have destroyed you

Now Mama, tell me why
Has pleasure got to rhyme with sacrifice?
You had your days
I had mine
You?re little girl?s a woman now …
For quite some time
