I Wish I Was Your Mother (Escovedo Alejandro)

I scream at you for sharing I curse you just for caring I hate the clothes you're wearing, they're so pretty I tell you not to see me I tell you not to feel me I make your life a drag, it's such a pity I watch your warm glow palin' I watch your sparkle fadin' As you realize you're failin' cos' you're so good Oh, I don't mean to upset you But there's so much crime to get through If I could make it easier then I would 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 pretending You give and I do the spending Is there a happy ending, I don't think so Cos' 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 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
