Pink Floyd - Mother Lyrics




Mother, do you think they'll drop the bomb?
Mother, do you think they'll like this song?
Mother, do you think they'll try to break my balls?
Ooh, aah, mother, should I build the wall?

Mother, should I run for president?
Mother, should I trust the government?
Mother, will they put me in the firing line?
Ooh, aah, is it just a waste of time?

Hush now, baby, baby, don't you cry
Mama's gonna make all of your nightmares come true
Mama's gonna put all of her fears into you
Mama's gonna keep you right here under her wing
She won't let you fly but she might let you sing
Mama's gonna keep baby cozy and warm

Ooh, babe, ooh, babe, ooh, babe
Of course mama's gonna help build the wall

Mother, do you think she's good enough for me?
Mother, do you think she's dangerous to me?
Mother, will she tear your little boy apart?
Ooh, aah, mother, will she break my heart?

Hush now, baby, baby, don't you cry
Mama's gonna check out all your girlfriends for you
Mama won't let anyone dirty get through
Mama's gonna wait up 'til you get in
Mama will always find out where you've been
Mamma's gonna keep baby healthy and clean

Ooh, babe, ooh, babe, ooh, babe
You'll always be a baby to me

Mother, did it need to be so high?

  6. tony salas

    i love you mom were not the closest but your still my best friend♥️

  7. Lillian Rox

    This sometimes reminds me of my mom...we are very close and I love her to death but she made me scared of everything as a kid...was always very overprotective of me...made me an anxious child and an anxious adult sometimes...that last line “mother did it need to be so high?” Gets to me every time

  8. Gio D' Alessio

    ...non ascolto e non mi offendono tutti i loro pregiudizi e le opinioni della gente che mi dice che sono arrogante e maleducata perchè non sono i loro preconfini pensati per me. Non sono la loro bimba, santa, e paperella bianca. Ciaooooo po po ahahah

  9. JesusIsSouthern

    Anyone who was raised by an abusive mother knows the pain here. Crushed when she loves you, crushed when she won't.

  10. Paul James Brady

    My mother has ruined my life, I was bullied an abused by her from the day I was born till today. She’s never apologised or give me any explanation. She’s the most heartless woman ever to walk our planet. I’m all fucked up with horrendous mental heath problems and it all became of her. She’s a parasite and if there is somewhere after death she is going to hell (sooner rather later)

  11. Peter Melnyk

    Mother will they try to brake my BALLS.....SUNDAY EARLY MORNING...my mind said play this...

  21. Adam Rene Gonzalez

    I love you momma, I don't have anything else to say to you that this song hasn't already

  22. Philippe Cirse

    Pendant de nombreuses années, les scientifiques, les philosophes et les théologiens ont posé certaines des plus grandes questions de la vie, telles que "Quel est le sens de la vie?", "Y a-t-il un Dieu?". Mais même dans ce cas, une question se pose avant tout, une question à laquelle il reste encore à répondre. Cette question étant "Comment pouvez-vous avoir du pudding si vous ne mangez pas votre viande?"

  23. chris g

    This song has a lot of meaning

  24. Mikedawg559

    Never seen the movie sober... Tried a few times😳😳

    mother , it's 2020

  27. Gio D' Alessio

    ...spalle contro i muri e per le persone abituate alle sofferenze e alle difficoltà piu che piangere facile e naturale è essere positive e ottimiste e sorridere.....che bene e amore non finiscono se sono anche e ancora libertà.....

    Gio D' Alessio

    23 10.....ho un sacco e più motivi per essere fiera di non assomigliare a mia madre.....

    Gio D' Alessio

    Io non impongo e creo muri hola

  28. Aggressive Pipe & Earth

    I have been listening to this song for 40 years and seems it gets more relevant with each passing year.

  29. Dan Pro

  33. HaseHERSHFELD Hershfeld

    🐰🎸🇺🇸🎤☮️🐰01-09-2020THU *I THINK SOME PPL JUST LIKE TO BOSS OTHER PPL AROUND, POES LAW IS EARLY INTERNET PHILOSOPHY, IN THE OLDEN DAYS OF THE NETS THE WEBMASTERS WERE LIKE GOD, THEY HAD ABSOLUTE POWER & RULE. THEY COULD BLOCK ANYONE, FOR ANY REASON, EVEN ARBITRARILY. SO THERES SOME HOLDOVER FROM THOSE DAYS FROM THE OLD TIMERS BUT I USUALLY JUST FLUSH ALL THAT. CONTEXT OF CONTENT IS LIKE LEARNING TO READ. U EITHER GET THE GIST OR U DONT. LIKE LIFE* 🏁 *CONSEQUENTLY, IF U DONT JUST BEND OVER FOR THE INSECURE BOSSY PPL, THEYLL IMMEDIATELY TURN U INTO PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER EINS AND ANYTHING U DO IS VERBOTEN OR BAD, WHATEVER. I THINK U NEED TO COME INTO THE LIGHT AND THE MODERN AGE THE WERLD DOESNT HAVE TO BE A DYSTOPIA U OLD BASTURDS ALWAYS WANT LIFE TO BE HORRIBLE THOUGH GAWD FORBID U LOSE SOME OF UR POWER TO MAIM IMPRISON OR KILL*

  34. Terry Tyler

    They do me like they did Sid Barrett and Elvis Presley, they just steeling from my mind.

  35. Terry Tyler

    You want to abolish ICE, but fail to abolish 50 & 60 hz kilocycles no more rigging

  36. Eddy Quigley

    This song is as relevant in 2020 as it was back then timeless

  37. Nick LeGrande

    Something about this song just allows me to breathe and have a moment of clarity.

  38. mikosoft

    The drummer is Jeff Porcaro. His signature late snare is all over the place.

  39. thefemalearrow

    This should’ve been in the movie joker or a trailer

    UpAndDown

    Hell no. This is about Pink/Roger, not the Joker. It'd be an appropriation of the song. Not to mention it's a rock opera.

  40. HaseHERSHFELD Hershfeld

    🇺🇸

  41. Lisergy Floyd

    Mother, do you think they are "my" band?

  42. Gio D' Alessio

  44. HaseHERSHFELD Hershfeld

    I LEFT HIS A#@ CUZ HE WAS WITH CHEN LEE/ROBERT SMITH AND DIDNT GIVE A $&#* ABOUT ME GOOD OL ROGER WATERS. THERES PICTURES OF HER/HE ALL OVER FROM 2018. I WAITED 14 MONTHS AND JUST BECAME HIS JOKE. I NEED A MAN NOT A CHILD. LIARS, HYPOCRITES, SO JUDGMENTAL OF EVERYBODY ELSE. HE CANT EVEN RUN HIS OWN LIFE. HES GONNA JUDGE MINE. HIS BE-OTCHES CONSTANTLY SLAP HIM AROUND LIKE HE HAS NO PENIS. HIS GIRLS RUN HIM! ALL THOSE ASIAN BE-OTHCES, ALWAYS GLARING AT EVERYONE. HE WAS MARRIED TO AN ASIAN, ALL HIS KIDS HAVE TIGHT EYES, DARK HAIR & EYES. SAME THING W/TB I KNOW WHAT U THINK OF ME. SAY A NORA. ASIANS W/ BREAST IMPLANTS
