Elliott Smith - Wouldn't Mama Be Proud? Lyrics




The question is: wouldn't mama be proud?
There's a silver lining in the corporate cloud
And the pretty post that you're taking as an NCO
Of the Great Pretender
I should sure think so
Wouldn't mama be proud?
"Can I take your order?" asked the heavenly host
Ticket to the jet stream, blowing coast to coast
The long-stemmed glasses, a movie, and a pleasant dream in midair
"You gotta tell me quickly, 'cos we're almost there"
Wouldn't mama be proud?
Pointed out of the window at the sky gone black
"Kid, you're on the right track"
If I send you postcards from the side of the road
Photographs of moving parts about to implode
If I crawl to keep it together like you say you know I can do
To transmit the moment from me to you
Wouldn't mama be proud?
Wouldn't mama be proud?
Wouldn't mama be proud?

    The question is wouldn't mama be proud?
    There's a silver lining in the corporate cloud
    And the pretty post that you're taking as an NCO
    Of the great pretender?
    I should sure think so!
    Wouldn't mama be proud?
    “Can I take your order?” Asked the heavenly host
    Ticket to the jet stream blowing coast to coast
    The long stemmed glasses, a movie and a pleasant dream in mid-air
    “You gotta tell me quickly, ‘cause we're almost there”
    Wouldn't mama be proud?
    Pointed out of the window at the sky gone black
    “Kid, you're on the right track”
    If I send you postcards from the side of the road
    Photographs of moving parts about to implode
    If I crawl to keep it together like you say you know I can do
    To transmit a moment from me to you
    Wouldn't mama be proud?
    Wouldn't mama be proud?
    Wouldn't mama be proud?

    Elliot Smith is a troubled man. Elliot Smith is a talented man in my opinion.

    Man, he has the worst song titles.

    squadalawereoff1

    That's rich, coming from someone who titled a song "everyone I meet is slow"

    Did you come up with that one all on your own or did you get inspired by Catcher in the Rye?

    If elliot wasn't the best song writer of his generation then he was definitely the most underrated

    The question is wouldn't mama be proud?
    There's a silver lining in the corporate cloud
    And the pretty post that you're taking as
    As an NCO of the great pretender
    I should sure think so

    Wouldn't mama be proud?

    "Can I take your order?"
    Asks the heavenly host
    Ticket to the jet-stream
    Blowing coast to coast

    The long stem glasses, a movie
    And a pleasant dream in mid air
    "You gotta tell me quickly
    'Cause we're almost there"

    Wouldn't mama be proud?

    Pointed out of the window
    At the sky gone black
    "Kid you're on the right track"

    If I send you postcards
    From the side of the road
    Photographs of moving
    Parts about to implode

    If I crawl to keep it together
    Like you say you know I can do
    To transmit a moment
    From me to you

    Wouldn't mama be proud?
    Wouldn't mama be proud?
    Wouldn't mama be proud?
    Wouldn't mama be proud?

    First time I ever heard this song. What a shock - it's excellent. Yawn. Lol. Just another one hit out of the park.
