I Wish I Was Your Mother

This song is by Mott the Hoople and appears on the album Mott (1973) and on the compilation album The Ballad of Mott: A Retrospective (1993).

I scream at you for sharing
'N I curse you just for caring
I hate the clothes you're wearing, they're so pretty
'N I tell to not to see me
'N I tell you not to feel me
'N I make your life a drag, it's such a pity

'N I watch your warm glow palin'
'N 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
'N 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

Ooh I wish I was your mother
I wish I'd been your father
'N 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
