  VERSE1
 
  C                   F 
  I scream at you for sharing
  C                       F
  'n I curse you just for caring
  C                         Dm                  G
  I hate the clothes you're wearing, they're so pretty
  C                   F
  'n I tell to not to see me
  C                    F
  'n I tell you not to feel me
  C                     Dm                G
  '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

  C                    F
  Oh I wish I was your mother
  C                    F
  I wish I'd been your father
  C                    Dm
  'n then I would have seen you
             F             G
  Would have been you as a child
  C                       F
  Played houses with your sisters
  C                          F
  And wrestled with all your brothers
  C      
  And then who knows
  Dm                  F            G 
  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
