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)
