Subject: Beautiful South - 'Mother's Pride'

Mother's Pride
by Paul Heaton and David Rotheray

        G                Am
Here he comes - Mother's Pride
         G                                          Am
With the first ever satchel she bought him swinging by his side
        G              Am
Here he comes Mother's Pride
       G                                     Am
With a headful of 'get your laces tied' and 'woe betide'

       F                               C
With a year's supply of sandwiches and fairy cakes
     F                              C
That she provides for him to eat at dinner breaks
     F             Am              G
It's no suprise at all, at all the friends he makes
His stomach aches
he's Mother's Pride

     Am                       C
He's presentable, well looked after
     F            C
He's domestically disastrous
     F        G          C
He's adorable - Mother's Pride

        C                Dm
Here he comes - Father's Pride
        C                                 Dm
With a head filled up with devil dogs and genocide
        C                Dm
Here he comes - Father's Pride
     C                                Dm
He's showing all the kids his tickets for ringside

      Bb                           F
He'll always roam the yard looking for a fight
      Bb                          F
He'll pick on all the kids who're twice his height
         Bb            Dm              C
He's the reason dinner ladies toss and turn at night
Dm                          C
Teacher's Blight - Father's Pride

         Dm           F
He's the image of his Dad
       Bb                   F
Mickey Mouse meets Jack the Lad
     Bb        C          F
He's never sad - Father's Pride

G Am
G Am

Here he comes Mother's Pride
Here he comes Father's Pride
Here he comes Mother's Pride
Father's Pride
His Mother's Pride
