  • She borders the pavement, flanks avenues
    Parades pass white glove attended by my mother the war
    She'll raise a shaft, lift a banner, toss a rose

    My mother the war
    Mother the war
    Mother the war
    Mother the war
    Mother the war

    She knows every neighbor, chats at their doors
    Compare econosize electric appliances, my mother the war
    Come share a tea and a seat by my cradle with

    My mother the war
    Mother the war
    Mother the war
    Mother the war

    Momentos of distant vigil, three years each tour
    Hands of god enfold him prayed, my mother the war
    Haunts her doorway, begs her postman, is there word for

    My mother the war
    My mother the war
    Mother
    Mother the war

    In bitter defiance she's spitting the corps
    Wet a brood short league for combat, my mother the war
    Well acquainted with sorrow, well with grief

    My mother the war
    Mother the war

    Fold and laced, carrion, blood soaked robes
    Fold and laced, carrion, blood soaked robes

    My mother the war, yeah yeah
    My mother
    Mother
    Mother
    Mummy
