INTRO: A D E A
[A] [D] [E] [A]  
VERSE1
[A]I scream at you for [D]sharing
[A]'n I curse you just for [D]caring
[A]I hate the clothes you're [Bm]wearing, they're so [E]pretty
[A]'n I tell to not to [D]see me
[A]'n I tell you not to [D]feel me
[A]'n I make your life a [Bm]drag, it's such a [E]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]Oh I wish I was your [D]mother
[A]I wish I'd been your [D]father
[A]'n then I would have [Bm]seen you
Would have [D]been you as a [E]child
[A]Played houses with your [D]sisters
[A]And wrestled with all your [D]brothers
[A]And then who knows
[Bm]I might have felt a [D]family for a [E]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)
