Mama Lay Softly on The Riverbed - Morrissey

Mama, why did you do it?
Mama, you'll go to it...

Was it the pigs in grey suits
Persercuting you?
Un-civil servants
With no care for how they lied to you

Life is nothing much to lose
It's just so lonely here without you

Mama, why did you do it?
Mama, you'll go to it...

Intruding British workmen
Who scared the life out of you
Balliffs with bad breathe
I will slay them through for you

Life is nothing much to lose
It's just so lonely here without you

Mama, why did you do it?
Mama, you'll go to it...

We're gonna run to you
W're gonna come to you
We're gonna lie down next to you

We're gonna run to you
We're gonna be with you
We're gonna lie down right next you (fade out, repeat)
