  INTRO: A D E A
         A D E A

  VERSE1
 
  A                   D 
  I scream at you for sharing
  A                       D
  'n I curse you just for caring
  A                         Bm                  E
  I hate the clothes you're wearing, they're so pretty
  A                   D
  'n I tell to not to see me
  A                    D
  'n I tell you not to feel me
  A                     Bm                E
  'n I make your life a drag, it's such a pity


                  
  'n I watch your warm glow palin'
  'n I watch your sparkle fadin'
  As you realise you're failin', cos you're so good
  Now I don't mean to upset you
  But there's so much crime to get through
  If only I could make it easier, then I would

  CHORUS

  A                    D
  Oh I wish I was your mother
  A                    D
  I wish I'd been your father
  A                    Bm
  'n then I would have seen you
             D             E
  Would have been you as a child
  A                       D
  Played houses with your sisters
  A                          D
  And wrestled with all your brothers
  A      
  And then who knows
  Bm                  D            E 
  I might have felt a family for a while

  VERSE2 (SAME CHORDS AS VERSE1)

  It's no use me pretendin'
  You give and I do the spendin'
  Is there a happy ending, I don't think so
  Cos even if we make it
  I'll be too far out to take it
  You'll have to try and shake it from my head
  
  CHORUS

  Oooooh I wish I was your mother
  I wish I'd been your father
  'n then I would have seen you
  Would have been you as a child
  Played houses with your sister
  And wrestled with all your brothers
  And then who knows
  I might have felt a family for a while
 
  OUTRO (SAME AS INTRO)
