Mother
John Lennon Lyrics


Mother, you had me
But I never had you
I, I wanted you
You didn't want me
So, I
I just got to tell you
Goodbye
Goodbye

Father, you left me
But I never left you
I needed you
You didn't need me
So, I
I just got to tell you, mm
Goodbye
Goodbye

Children, don't do
What I have done
I couldn't walk
And I tried to run
So, I
I just got to tell you
Goodbye
Goodbye

Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home

Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home

Mama don't go
Daddy come home
Mama don't go
Daddy come home

"Mother, you had me but I never had you". My god, so powerful, and loaded that one sentence.

It’s amazing what damage some parents can do to their children.

Including John himself.

@George PenwellA rotten or abusive father is no better than not having a father because in a true sense he's still not there for you.

We always become the thing we hate the most.

Fortitude Valance

Parents make the massive mistake of not learning from their own childhood when it comes to their offspring.
