lyrics

Oh Maria
Why must you lie in your room?
Hate to see you
Hiding away in the shadows
How come?
What’s the matter my love?
What procedure could we do to change your mood?
Pharmacy has kajillions of pills
Here’s some water
Swallow
Here’s some culture
Follow
And don’t you falter
Or people will know
They’ll think your mother
Fucked up raising you

Oh Maria
Why must you wind your cocoon?
Come and be a well-behaved
Teen-age consumer
Honey, get dressed
Burn right through your
Allowance
There’ll be more money
The older you get
One day like mother
You could buy some new breasts
Don’t look so depressed

You want to scream out loud
You hear the wind blowing through the trees
As if your God was saying
With a finger to his lips
“Child, don’t’ you speak.”

Oh Maria
Someday they’ll hand you your age
And you’ll be a
Gray-haired old bill-paying bother
Always in foul moods
Just like your father
And wife number two
You’ll have a daughter
She’ll look just like you
You’ll look upon her
And ask, “Why are you so blue?”
