Mother Dear

Something’s on my mind
Mother dear, the boy keeps me crying
Don’t know which way to turn
Keeps me so confused
Keeps me so confused

Mother dear
‘Cause for him, I yearn
But he treats your daughter bad,
Keeps your daughter sad

I wish I didn’t love him so (help, help me, mother dear)
‘Cause now, I can’t let him go (help, help me, mother dear)
His kiss gets a little sweeter
Ooh, my heart gets a little weaker

I’m falling deeper (deeper deeper)
Deeper in love each day (help, help me, mother dear)
I know he’s no good for me
But I’m too weak to break away

Ooh, each day love gets a little stronger
Ooh, heartaches last a little longer

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

Help, help me, mother dear
‘Cause I can’t help myself (help, help me, mother dear)
Ooh, he treats your daughter bad,
Keeps your daughter sad

So many times, I’ve tried (help, help me, mother dear)
Telling him we’re through (help, help me, mother dear)
But when he takes me in his arms,
There’s nothing I can do

Ooh, it’s no use (it’s no use)
I can’t break loose (I can’t break loose)
I’m lovin’ him more and more
And more each passing day

All my love, to him I give
Without him around, I couldn’t live
I need him so, and he knows it
Can’t let him go and I show it

Help, help me, mother dear
I’m so in love with him
But he treats your daughter bad,
Keeps your daughter sad

Help, help me, mother dear
Help, help me, mother dear
He keeps your daughter crying
He keeps your daughter sighing

Help, help me, mother dear
(fade out)
