"Does Your Mother Know" as written by Benny Goran Bror Andersson and Bjoern K. Ulvaeus....
Does your mother know
You had to go someday
Does your mother know
That you would go so fast
Anyway, that's all you think about
You'd call her if you could

But the letters that you write
In the faded winter light
Just tell her they tell her
That you've got ten dollars
And you'll be all right
And when you get straight
You're gonna come back east some day

Does your mother know
You have a man in the West
Does your mother know
You drove him from your door
Anyway that's all you think about
You'd call her if you could

Does your mother know
You walked all day in the rain
Does your mother know
How deep your love could be
Anyway that's all you think about
You'd call her if you could

But the letters that you write
In the faded winter light
Just tell her they tell her
That you've got ten dollars
And your rent costs eight
And when you get straight
You're gonna come back east some day

But the letters that you write
In the faded winter light
Just tell her they tell her

    Song MeaningFor the last 30 years I assumed getting straight was just generally getting your act together, but it just hit me: could it mean getting drug-free?
