Mom And Dad  Frank Zappa



[C6/9]You'll sit [Am9]home and [DsusE]drink all [Fmaj9]night they [C6/9]looked too [Am9]weird it
DsusE Em *
served them right.

(repeat the above)

[F6/9]Ever take a minute just to show a real emotion,

in between the moisture cream and velvet facial lotion?

[Bbmaj9]Ever tell your [Abmaj9]kids you're [Bbmaj9]glad that they can [Abmaj9]think?

[Bbmaj9]Ever say you [Abmaj9]loved them? Ever [Bbmaj9]let them watch you [Abmaj7]drink?
[DsusE]Ever wonder why your daughter looked so sad? It's
Em *
such a drag to love a plastic Mom and Dad.

Mama!  [F6/9]Mama! Your [CsusD]child [DsusE]was   [EsusF#]killed in the park to-[DsusE]day,

CsusD F Em *
Shot by the cops as she quietly lay.

[C6/9]By the [Am9]side of the [DsusE]creeps she [Fmaj9]knew. They killed her [Em]too.
