Roger Waters - "Mother" (Roger Waters and His Band Play ‘Mother’ from Quarantine)



Social distancing is a necessary evil in Covid world. Watching "Mother" reminds me just how irreplaceable the joy of being in a band is.

Roger Waters




Roger Waters and his touring band aren’t able to be out on the road right now — the COVID-19 pandemic postponed his anticipated This Is Not A Drill tour to 2021.


“We haven’t stopped work,” Waters said. “We didn’t stop for a single second. The show is part rock & roll arena show, part cinema. It’s couched on this idea that we are divided between the ruling classes, who I characterize as living in the iCloud. They live in the sky — it’s all white up there, and they live in great luxury. And then there’s the netherworld where the rest of us shuffle around, uncomfortably numb.”







Lyrics


Mother, do you think they'll drop the bomb?

Mother, do you think they'll like this song?

Mother, do you think they'll try to break my balls?

Ooh, aah, mother, should I build the wall?


Mother, should I run for president?

Mother, should I trust the government?

Mother, will they put me in the firing line?

Ooh, aah, is it just a waste of time?


Hush now, baby, baby, don't you cry

Mama's gonna make all of your nightmares come true

Mama's gonna put all of her fears into you

Mama's gonna keep you right here under her wing

She won't let you fly but she might let you sing

Mama's gonna keep baby cozy and warm


Ooh, babe, ooh, babe, ooh, babe

Of course mama's gonna help build the wall


Mother, do you think she's good enough for me?

Mother, do you think she's dangerous to me?

Mother, will she tear your little boy apart?

Ooh, aah, mother, will she break my heart?


Hush now, baby, baby, don't you cry

Mama's gonna check out all your girlfriends for you

Mama won't let anyone dirty get through

Mama's gonna wait up 'til you get in

Mama will always find out where you've been

Mamma's gonna keep baby healthy and clean


Ooh, babe, ooh, babe, ooh, babe

You'll always be a baby to me


Mother, did it need to be so high?
