MOTHER'S LAMENT  
CREAM - Disraeli Gears : capo on 5th

A one, a two, a phree, a pho--ah...
  [D]                    [G]
A mother was washing her baby one night;
    [A]                   [D]        A
The youngest of ten and a delicate mite.
    [D]                     [G]
The mother was poor and the baby was thin;
      [A]                   [D]            A
'Twas naught but a skeleton covered with skin.
    [D]                        [G] 
The mother turned 'round for a soap off the rack.
        [A]              [D]               A
She was only a moment but when she turned back
    [D]                   [G]
Her baby had gone, and in anguish she cried,
     [A]                           [D]        A
"Oh, where has my baby gone?" The angels replied:
[D]                             [G]     
Oh, your baby has gone down the plug hole.
 [A]                       [D]
Your baby has gone down the plug.
G                 G7           D          B7      
The poor little thing was so skinny and thin,
[E7]                             A          A7
He should have been washed in a jug, in a jug.
[D]                       [G]
 Your baby is perfectly happy;      
[A]                    [D]
He won't need a bath anymore.
[G]                             [D]    E7
He's a-muckin' about with the angels above,
     [A]       A7     [D]
Not lost but gone before.
