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
