"1997" as written by and Megan Alexanda Washington Michael Francis Tomlinson....
My mother works so hard, she works so late
Oh mother take it easy, you work so hard
You might be late to your own party
When you leave me it's not fair
When you leave me it's not fair
When you leave me it's not fair
When you leave me it's not fair, it's not fair

Hit you with the feather, miss you by a whisker
And I'm going to kill you if you dare to
Hit me with the feather, miss you by a whisker
Said a room whatever

Father, I love you so, I love you so
I love parts of your body
I love you so
You're never late to your own party
When you leave me it's not fair
When you leave me it's not fair
When you leave me it's not fair
When you leave me it's not fair

Don't give me more than I want, don't give me more than I want
Don't give me more than I want, I will take just what, I got it
Don't give me what you want

Mother, I love you so, I love you so
I love parts of your Father
Adorable
And now I know that if I had a brother
Oh he would know, he would know
But all I've got is a sister,
She lives below, she lives below, she lives below your home
How I love ya

Hit you with the feather, miss you by a whisker
And I'm going to kill you if you dare to
Hit me with the feather, miss you by a whisker
Better late than never, your own party

Hit you with the feather, miss you by a whisker
Better late than never, your own party x 4

    General CommentHey guys, I just attempted to figure out these lyrics by ear. There's a high chance that some of these are wrong, so if they are, just pm me and I will fix them asap.

    Love the catchiness of this song, not too sure what it's actually about :)

    Lyric CorrectionFather, I love you so, I love you so
    "I'VE GOT" parts of your body
    I love you so
    You're never late to your own party

    I love parts of your body sounds creepy :\

    General CommentMy mother works so hard
    She works so late
    Oh mother, take it easy
    You work so hard
    You might be late
    To your own party

    When you leave me it's not fair
    When you leave me it's not fair
    When you leave me it's not fair
    When you leave me it's not fair
    It's not fair

    Hit you with a feather
    Miss you by a whisker
    And I'm going to kill you
    If you dare to
    Hit me with a feather
    Miss you by a whisker
    Etcetera, whatever
    Oh my father

    Father, I love you so
    I love you so
    I've got parts of your body
    I love you so
    You're never late
    To your own party

    When you leave me it's not fair
    When you leave me it's not fair
    When you leave me it's not fair
    When you leave me it's not fair

    Don't give me more than I want
    Don't give me more than I want
    Don't give me more than I want
    I will just take what I've got
    Don't give me what you want

    Mother, I love you so
    I love you so
    I've got parts of your father, and Dorrigo
    Now I know that if I had a brother
    He would know
    He would know
    But all I've got's a sister
    She lives below
    She lives below
    She lives below your home

    How I love you

    Hit you with a feather
    Miss you by a whisker
    And I'm going to kill you
    If you dare to
    Hit me with a feather
    Miss you by a whisker
    Better late than never
    Your own party

    Hit me with a feather
    Miss you by a whisker
    Better late than never
    Your own party

    Hit me with a feather
    Miss you by a whisker
    Better late than never
    Your own party
