Mother have you heard the screams
Through the open door?
He's tied up to the bedpost
Just like the night before.

Mother light your cigarette
And pour another drink.
Apologies for disrespect
Come sooner than you think.

Tonight----she takes control.
She's singing
Doo-doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo-doo, doo doo doo
Doo-doo, doo doo doo doo
Doot doo doot do doo

Mother keep these crazy thoughts
From drifting through your head.
After eighteen years of marriage
Do you really want him dead?

Mother----you may lose control.
She's singing
Doo-doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo-doo, doo doo doo
Doo-doo, doo doo doo doo
Doot doo doot do doo

Mother put that gun away
With your silly grin
Stop aiming at my father's head
There's always other men.

Mother --- you've lost control.
She's singing
Doo-doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo-doo, doo doo doo
Doo-doo, doo doo doo doo
Doot doo doot do doo

Doo-doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo-doo, doo doo doo doo doo
Doo-doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doot doo doot do doot.

(Ends abruptly)
