Ian Hunter - I Wish I Was Your Mother lyrics

Hunter

I scream at you for sharing
And I curse you just for caring
I hate the clothes you're wearing, they're so pretty.

And I tell you not to see me
And I tell you not to feel me
And I make your life a drag, it's such a pity.

And I watch your warm glow palin'
And I watch your sparkle fadin'
As you realise you're failin', 'cause you're so good.

Now I don't mean to upset you
But there's so much crime to get through
If only I could make it easier, then I would.

Oh I wish I was your mother
I wish I'd been your father
And then I would have seen you, would have been you as a child.

Played houses with your sisters
And wrestled with all your brothers
And then who knows, I might have felt a family for a while.

It's no use me pretendin'
You give and I do the spendin'
Is there a happy ending? I don't think so.

'Cause even if we make it
I'll be too far out to take it
You'll have to try and shake it from my head.

Oh I wish I was your mother
I wish I'd been your father
And then I would have seen you, would have been you as a child.

Played houses with your sisters
And wrestled with all your brothers
And then who knows, I might have felt a family for a while.
