Mother was on a diet for most of her life
She was never very happy in her skin
As well as being labelled a deserted wife
There was an expectation for her to be thin

Forked parochial tongues
Spitting malcontent
Her husband bailed out
No one knows where he went
He was a foreigner, don't you know
It only goes to show
Better the devil you know
The devil you know
Maybe she wouldn't be alone
If she'd stuck with one of her own

Oh don't believe a word
That don't make no sense at all

And these children of god
Never say it to her face
They smile whenever they see her
They think she's a disgrace
They confess to some pedophile
Seeking forgiveness all the while
It's the god that they know
The only god that they know
Better the god they know

Oh don't believe a word
That don't make no sense at all
