Mother Submit Correct Lyrics

Mother dear, you'll never be my sister
Seek the advice of a solicitor
Mother dear, you'll never be my sister

Show me empathy, Californian sensibilities
All my problems spring from my troubled upbringing
We need to go right back to the beginning

Dis-possessed from the outset
What you made is precisely what you get
Mother dear, it should be you that's sitting here
On this couch, ouch

Mother, dear, you'll never be my sister
Seek the advice of a solicitor
Mother, dear, you'll never be my sister
On my shoulder you're a chip
On my foot you're a blister

Mother dear, you'll never be my sister
Seek the advice of a solicitor
Mother dear, you'll never be my sister

So tell me what am I gonna do
They told me that maybe I could sue
And oh, how the many
Were corrupted by the few

So I dance the mambo and the cha cha cha
I run you over in my beautiful car
Dearest darling, mummy dear
We can't bear to have you near us

Mother dear, you'll never be my sister
Seek the advice of a solicitor
Mother dear, you'll never be my sister
On my shoulder you're a chip
On my foot you're a blister

Mother dear, you'll never be my sister
Seek the advice of a solicitor
Mother dear, you'll never be my sister

The blame lies in the family name
It's not my fault I did as I was taught
Escape to Mongolia or Timbuktu
I know somehow, somewhere I'll be bumping into you

You see, I'm blameless
I had a mother who was shameless
No wonder my life collapsed

See I'm aimless
With all this analysis
I think I'm having a relapse

Mother dear, you'll never be my sister
Seek the advice of a solicitor
Mother dear, you'll never be my sister
On my shoulder you're a chip
On my foot you're a blister

Mother dear, you'll never be my sister
Seek the advice of a solicitor
Mother dear, you'll never be my sister
On my shoulder you're a chip
On my foot you're a blister

We love you, we do
We've taken advice
We may sue

You see I'm blameless
I shall remain nameless
You can't run away from the past

I know what her game is
But I've forgotten what my name is
I'm just too frightened to ask

Tell me what did you expect
What you made is precisely what you get
Precisely what you get
Precisely what you get
