Mom And Dad

Frank Zappa

 C6/9Am9DsusEFmaj9C6/9Am9
 You'll sit home and drink all night they looked too 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?

 Bbmaj9Abmaj9Bbmaj9Abmaj9
 Ever tell your kids you're glad that they can think?

 Bbmaj9Abmaj9Bbmaj9Abmaj7
 Ever say you loved them? Ever let them watch you drink?

 DsusE
 Ever wonder why your daughter looked so sad? It's

Em *
such a drag to love a plastic Mom and Dad.

 F6/9CsusDDsusEEsusF#DsusE
Mama!  Mama! Your child was   killed in the park to-day,

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

 C6/9Am9DsusEFmaj9Em
 By the side of the creeps she knew. They killed her too.
