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?

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

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.

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 😊

My favorite song off The Wall. Bought the album when it first came out, bought the cassette tape for the car, and when the brand new compact disk format came out I was in Japan and waited in line to get it. The whole album was mind blowing at the time and their stadium concert was off the charts amazing. I really miss bands like this.

I love you, Roger.
Thank you for sharing your gift with us, thank you for being you.
This album has always been my favorite, from way back when it was released.
It resonated with me then, I didn't really know why. I do now, Comfortably Numb used to be my favorite song on the album, but no more.

The child in me is no longer grown, the dream is not gone.

Peace, and light.

Collin W
Collin W:
Being playing more guitar over the last year, and finding great songs to play along to. I've played along with all the greats but this song, this performance, those singers, this is by far my favorite song to play along with. Thank you all for making this lockdown bearable.
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.

Can’t even begin to explain the feelings I get when I hear this song. It’s always been one of my favorites for as long as I can remember. But this version... those two women and their voices. Simply in awe of their talent and how they suck you into the song. What an outstanding job by everyone involved. Cheers to each and everyone of you.
Every time listening to this song is like seeing one of your best friends again. Brings back the best memories of young adulthood.

Una de las mejores versiones de esta canción. Gracias Roger!
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.
