KATE & ANNA MCGARRIGLE
"Mother Mother"

Get for me a dog that bites
Turn him loose on moonless nights
Get for me a dog that bays
And turn him loose on sunless days

Someone's trying to hurt me

Build for me a house of stone
Lock it up when you leave me alone
And cage it in a fence of iron
To keep your child from all harm

Mother Mother oh help me
Someone's trying to hurt me
Mother Mother oh help me
Someone's trying to hurt me
Mother Mother oh help me
Someone's trying to hurt me
Mother Mother oh help me
Someone's trying to hurt me

Get for me a bird of prey
Starve it night and day
And turn it loose where tyrants dwell
And make a heaven from this hell

Mother Mother oh help me
Someone's trying to hurt me
Mother Mother oh help me
Someone's trying to hurt me
Mother Mother oh help me
Mother Mother
