Mother, do you think they'll drop the bomb?
Mother, do you think they'll like this song?
Mother, do you think they'll try to break my balls?
Mother, should I build the wall?

Mother, should I run for president?
Mother, should I trust the government?
Mother, will they put me in the firing line?
Is it just a waste of time?

Hush now, baby, baby, don't you cry
Mamma's gonna make all of your nightmares come true
Mamma's gonna put all of her fears into you
Mamma's gonna keep you right here, under her wing
She won't let you fly, but she might let you sing
Mamma's gonna keep baby cosy and warm
Ooh babe, ooh babe
Ooh babe
Of course, Mamma's gonna help build the wall

Mother, do you think she's good enough–for me?
Mother, do you think she's dangerous–to me?
Mother, will she tear your little boy apart?
Mother, will she break my heart?

Hush now, baby, baby, don't you cry
Mamma's gonna check out all your girlfriends for you
Mamma won't let anyone dirty get through
Mamma's gonna wait up until you get in
Mamma will always find out where you've been
Mamma's gonna keep baby healthy and clean
Ooh babe, ooh babe
Ooh babe
You'll always be baby to me

Mother, did it need to be so high?

Roger, if you and David could find some way of putting it all behind you both, and make just one video like this together, it would bring a flood of hope into a world that's sorely lacking it right now.

I've heard those 3 chords a million times, but when they're played by Roger Waters they're somehow redefined into something else. That's the magic of a great artist.

Who really cares anymore? Waters is a legend. Gilmour is a legend. Roger has written and created some of the most moving pieces of work ever. David sings and plays the guitar like nobody else ever. They are all facts. Just enjoy it. Life's much better for it 😊

I gave my son Floyd as his middle name, for my love of the band. For as long as I remember, my father played The Wall, cranked on his high end sound system. It thrilled me, and at the same time put some fear into me, not knowing the message, but hearing the seriousness of it. Keep in mind he probable played it while I was in the womb! Perhaps this puts me in the top 100 earliest conceived fans...not the band's time here, but from conception to hearing. As soon as my little ear drums started pounding, you can count on my ability to hear this music. The old amp was always hot.
Excellent. I’ve always loved the insight of Roger’s writing!

Used to listen to this song and album on a Walkman up in the attic while smoking cigs, back when I was in high school. I was adopted so I always thought of my birthmom when this song came on and imagined singing it to her…we finally reunited when I was in my mid 30’s. Bitter sweet but we healed each other when we met and are still in touch! This song and album inspired me and helped me make it through my younger years! Roger is truly a brilliant writer and musician, thank you for your art and wisdom!!!

Um verdadeiro dinossauro um clássico, de todos os tempos curto pink Floyd desde os meus 10 anos até hoje com 63 e com muito orgulho
The two backing singers absolutely nailed it, the tone, the harmony was just perfect. And Roger sounds as good as ever. This bought back memories and so may tears.

I remember taking my parents Dark Side of the Moon album and listening to it when I was probably 10 years old. The art work is what intrigued me at first to listen to it. I found myself listening to it for the incredible music afterwards. The journey began from there. There are many great Pink Floyd albums but The Wall is the one that did it for me. My friends and I use to go to the midnight movies to watch it. I bet I've watched The Wall at least 70 times. As time has passed so has my brother and many of my good friends. They all went way too young. When I listen to or watch The Wall now it brings back so many memories of the times we had partying like we were invincible and listening to Pink Floyd. On 7/23 I took my 16 year old son with me to see Roger Waters in Detroit Michigan. His first,my third. His journey has just begun.

I'm playing this right now for my son he's 11 hours old I'm in the hospital room with him on my chest . I got one earphone in my ear n the other is next to his . This is the first song he will ever hear. Just like my mother did for me 40 years ago. Love this song n it's always been extremely important to hope he likes it. I'm sure he will. Thank you PINK FLOYD

Absolute best version. Thank you!
The Wall changed my life when I was struggling in high school. It seemed like the only truth I was exposed to. My mother is/was a narcissist, so boy did this song strike a chord. I would listen to the Wall multiple times a day for at least a year straight. The greatest album EVER made. Nothing compares to it.

I can listen to this over and over again..... I love also the backup vocals!
If you do indeed “ do this again,” I would love to hear another Wall song , “Hey You,” done this way. It is certainly a poignant song for the times we are in right now. But I do love this version of “Mother” though. Thanks for this unexpected surprise.

Gene Patterson:
Roger wrote some of the most beautiful music ever recorded, close your eyes and let the music alone take you on a magic carpet ride. Then add in the lyrics and it rises to even greater heights.
I saw him on the Us and Them tour a few years ago. The most amazing concert I have ever seen. I’m a metal head at heart but was raised on classic rock. The show could only be described as perfection.
This is sublime. Music that will last for all time alongside Bach, Beethoven, Mozart et al. Just supreme artistry.
Escucho a este gran músico y ser humano, por su buen corazón que está grabado en cada canción!!!
An All-Star lineup, sublime lead guitar, wonderful vocals ladies, a tight arrangement, and as mentioned, I appreciated Roger mouthing a few words for those watching closely, I heartily agree mate, this song is more poignant than ever after decades. I'll check the Raleigh, NC tickets and see if I'll have to sell a kidney to afford one.
Carlos Alberto
Carlos Alberto:
I have no words to express tehe feeling I've got watching this. Some tear drops rolled down from my eyes. Roger Waters is the Pink Floyd, no matter what other musicians play with him, he is the PinK Floyd.
Pete Wild
Pete Wild:
As a 14 year old, when I first got into the Floyd, they became everything to me. They weren't a pop band or a rock band, they were THE band. They were, I thought, enlightened beyond anything I had known before. They weren't like anyone else. When they split, they just didn't split themselves they broke all of us. I put them on a pedestal and they knocked themselves off it. So, like all right minded people, we looked elsewhere for the magic we had lost. I'm sure everyone has found nuggets of gold out there? I found plenty but I still wonder what could have been? The best concert I've been to in the last 30 years?. Nick Mason and his Saucerful of Secrets, that's what. Because I still love the floyd and always will. It's just so shite that it went the way it did. It doesn't invalidate the music. Just leaves millions of people a bit less happy than they once were. Still, I like this version of mother so thanks for that. ps. Pros and Cons is still one of my all time fave albums. I'm 53 now by the way so this has burnt bright for quite a while. Just saying :)

Sublime😍 and still chokes me up to this day 😭💜✨. All around great chemistry in this lineup. And I love that the two supporting vocalists look like Twin Sisters a bit! They sound great, everyone here sounds great.
Every time listening to this song is like seeing one of your best friends again. Brings back the best memories of young adulthood.

We do like this song, Roger.

It's amazing how he still sounds the same as he did when he was younger. Great stuff. Also that look at the camera at 1:10 was hilarious.
Those female backing vocals though, like holy mother they are angelic

I was 17 when I heard Atom Heart Mother, ❤ that was in 1971, I watched this group grow and ger better and better, I bought Animals as soon as I saw it in the rack at Gibsons in Copperas Cove Texas, hearing it now brings so many happy and sad memories both, my sometimes wasted youth but still the music was and still is a constant source of joy, always creating a backdrop to one's life. I m a fan of everything Rodger and David have done and I'll always wish Syd's life had been better.

My greatest joy is listening to pink Floyd, I am currently listening to vinyls that belonged to my brother who passed 31 years ago aged 22 and the father of my first two children who passed away in March sadly, but massive pink Floyd fans as I have grown to be, I think it's sad they can no longer be as one but love them for who they have become on their own, great musicians with different stories to tell in their own way, rip, Syd Barrett 😢
