DON'T WANT TO BE YOUR MAMMA
by Selia Qynn, 2/96
(A country duet with verses sung by the man and chorus sung by the woman.)

We've been through so much, baby,
Invested so much time,
I've felt so strongly for you,
That I still feel like you're mine.
So won't you reconsider,
And come hold me close again?
I promise I won't hurt you.
This time I'll be your friend.

Don't say goodbye just because
I don't give you what you need.
No one gets everything they want.
That would be considered greed.
So come and stand beside me.
The hard times will make us strong.
We could even have some children
To help the process along.

I'm emotionally exhausted, and bored with all this angst.
So kind of you to offer, but I have to say no thanks.
I'm afraid I'd fall asleep in the middle of the trauma.
I may be dysfunctional, babe, but I don't wanna be your mamma.

Last night I dreamed we were together
And you had seven breasts.
And a pesky guest was resting in
The west wing of our nest.
Dreams have secrets to reveal.
A symbol is a clue.
I don't know what all this means,
I just want to be with you.

Come on, babe, sacrifice your life. What else you gonna do?
My outlook isn't all that bad, If you don't mind the view.
So come on home and love me, And stop wasting all this time.
I'll forgive you your insanity If you'll give in to mine.

I'm emotionally exhausted, and bored with all this angst.
So kind of you to offer, but I have to say no thanks.
I'm afraid I'd fall asleep in the middle of the trauma.
I may be dysfunctional, babe, but I don't wanna be your mamma.
