The Lyrics

Still live with Mum now, though I am older
Forty-two years old, and she's getting colder
Smothers me, why does my mum smother me
Well, I wanna leave but Mother won't let me so she can smother me

Still calls me 'baby' despite having stubble
Curfew's still eight SHARP - or else I'm in deep trouble
Smothers me, my mum always smothers me
Can't bring myself to say bugger off so she will always smother me

Mum's quite the pain, won't let me go
Sneak out, she knows where I'm going
Turns out the light, bolts the door
I ain't going out tonight, no

"This whole world is dangerous, you can't ignore"
I've heard enough, I cannot take it anymore
Smothering, Mum please don't smother me
Don't want to be a bother but could you maybe not smother me
I know I'm on parole, but could you stop it, don't smother me

Heya, bobpie...long time, dude! This was good: a little rough around the edges and needing a few KO lines, but a lovely idea well executed. 555

I really liked that last line, lol, this was a very good write although I agree with Kristof about the fact that it's missing a few killer lines. The "parole" one and the "stubble" lines were the best the rest was decent.

That is one of my all-time favorite Springsteen songs, and was absolutely perfect for this theme! Smothering you with fives!!

Necessity is the smother of invention.

Art-I like the idea. I though it could have been a bit more over the top. A wife replaces a mother in due time :)

You know. . .something about a 42 year old with a curfew. . .just made me laugh my a$$ off TCOP. I moved out of home when I was 18, one thing I can tell the character of this song. . .it's just how mom's are, I've learned to love the attention and concern, even living almost 1,000 miles from her--I enjoyed this one TCOP, so far in fact, this round hasn't really had a sour spot.
