mama says lyrics – billy pilgrim

mama they won’t take me seriously
they show me the door but they hold back the key
i ask myself what is wrong with me
do they see something i don’t see
i know you told me, not to take from strangers
but i am preoccupied with the dangers
and respect among thieves
there’s a piracy on the high seas
and i am held for treason here
with no reasons clear, that i know
the old house by the late
a split was so apparent
an imminent break
how could i’ve known
i was just a kid
i was only doin’
just what i was told
and i know you told me, not to take from strangers
but i am preoccupied with the dangers
and respect among thieves
there’s a piracy on the high seas
and i am held for treason here
with no reasons clear, that i know
what do i know? the seeds don’t grow
through my broken home
what do i know?
i don’t want to grow old alone
what do i know?
mama they won’t take me seriously
they show me the door
but they hold back the key
