When Jack was born
He winked at Mom
Her pretty face
Was the first he saw

Was Jack wrong, cause he loved Mom?

Things weren't bad
Before they got worse
Momma pinched Jack
Until it hurt
Momma thought
Her boy was cursed

You leave, leave, leave that boy to me
Oh, Jack, I love him
You leave that boy to me
You leave, leave, leave that boy to me
I know his condition
And soon he'll be set free

Off at school
Jack was cruel
He'd become
The bully's bull
Was Jack wrong to mimic Mom?
And after school
From the corner stool
Mom was kissin'
On the golden rule
Jack had become a teacher's fool

You leave, leave, leave that man to me
Oh Mom I love you
And soon you will be free
With my will, my hands, like old Solomon
And in your honor, I'm gonna cut that man in half

All the lessons that Momma would teach
Books from Rome and ancient Greece
Men who pushed rocks from stony mountains
Turnin' one fish into five thousand
A king who went blind from a mother's love
Till a rage came over Jack
With Momma lyin' on her back
The one who taught him right from wrong
Who'd known better all along
She got rammed through when Jack killed his mom

Don't leave, don't leave, don't leave this world to me
Oh Mom I love you
I didn't mean to set you free
With my will, my hands, like old Solomon
Oh Mom I love you
I didn't mean to set you free

Was Jack wrong? (Jack killed Mom)
Was Jack wrong? (Jack killed Mom)
Was Jack wrong? (Jack killed Mom)

Jack killed Mom
Jack killed Mom
Jack killed Mom
Jack killed Mom
Jack killed Mom
Jack killed Mom

When Jack killed his mom
