"I Wish I Was Your Mother" as written by and Ian Hunter....
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 paling
I watch your sparkle fading
You realize you're tailing
'Cause you're so good

I don't mean to upset you
But there's so much crying to get through
If only 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've seen you
Would have been you as a child

Played houses with your sisters
And wrestled with 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 all the spending
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
Through my head

I wish I was your mother
I wish I'd been your father
And then I would've 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
