Mama Lay Softly On The Riverbed Lyrics - Morrissey

Lyrics

Mama, why did you do it?
Mama, who drove you to it?
was it the pigs in grey suits
persecuting you?
uncivil servants unconcerned at how they frighten you?
Life is nothing much to lose
it's just so lonely here without you
Mama, why did you do it?
Mama, who drove you to it?
spare priggish money-men who scared the life out of you
bailiffs with bad-breath
I will slit their throats for you
Life is nothing much to lose
it's just so lonely here
without you, Mama
Life is nothing much to lose
it's just so lonely here without you, so
we're gonna run to you
we're gonna come to you
we're gonna lie down
beside you, Mama
we're gonna be with you
we're gonna join you
we're gonna lie down
beside you, Mama
and we will be safe and sheltered in our graves
we'll come before you
and we will kiss you
by way of one final hug, Mama
