"Mother Mom Said" as written by and Daniel Johnston....
I had a reason
I had an excuse
My heart was bleeding
My head was in the noose
What did mother mom say
What did mother mom say
What did mother mom say
What did mother mom say

Mother mom said
Mother mom said
Mother mom said
Mother mom said
Don't go
Mother mom said

My arms were shaking
Like a chicken wing coop
I had it all spelled out for me
In my alphabet soup
And those soup cans and pop bottles
Dancing in the nude
And the nervous radio played forgotten songs that only an orphan could remember
Then everything fell apart
Then everything came together
And There were shoe laces there a million miles long
And I was gone

What did mother mom say
What did mother mom say
What did mother mom say
Uh what did mother mom say

Mother mom said
Mother mom said
Mother mom said
Mother mom said
Don't go
Please don't go

My bank account just fell through
Elma says it happened to her son
And now I'm hitting the road
Elma says it happened to her son
Elma says
Elma says
Elma says
Elma told my mom!

Elma told my mom
Elma told my mom
Elma told my mom
Elma told my mom
Don't go!
Please don't go
Please don't go
Please don't go
