Treat Me Like Your Mother Lyrics

by The Dead Weather

Don't act like you can't act
I know what you think you're doing
You better learn to shake hands
And treat me like your mother

Don't act like you can't act
Stand up like a man
You better learn to shake hands
And treat me like your mother

You came up too late
You came up too late now
You came up too late
To do a thing

Come on look me in the eye
You wanna try to tell a lie?
I bet you can't, you know why?
I'm dressed like your mother

Look me in the eye now
You wanna try to tell a lie?
You can't, you know why?
I'm dressed like your mother

You came up too late
You came up too late now
You came up too late
Play dumb, play dead, play straight

Who's got it figured out?
Play dumb, play dead, play straight
Who's got it figured out?
Play straight, try to manipulate

M A N I P U late, M A N I P U late
M A N I P U late, M A N I P U late
Am I too, am I late? Am I too, am I late?
Am I, am I, am I, am I, am I too late?

Who's got it figured out?
Left, right, left, right
Got it figured out
Who's got it figured out?
Play straight

Stand up like a man
You better learn to shake hands
You better look me in the eye now
Treat me like your mother

Come on look me in the eye
You wanna try to tell a lie?
You can't, you know why?
I'm dressed like your mother

Play dumb, play dead, try to manipulate

You blink when you breathe
And you breathe when you lie
You blink when you lie

You blink when you breathe
And you breathe when you lie
You blink when you lie

You blink when you breathe
And you breathe when you lie
You blink when you lie

Who's got it figured out?
Left, right, left, right
Got it figured out
Who's got it figured out?
Play straight, try and manipulate

Who's got it figured out?
Left, right, left, right
Who's got it figured out?
Play straight, try to manipulate

You blink when you breathe
And you breathe when you lie
You blink when you lie
Who's got it figured out?
Play straight
