J Mascis - Every Mother's Son

Well I've been riding a winning horse
For a long, long time
Sometimes I wonder
Is this the end of the line
No one should take advantage
Of who they are
No man has got it made
If he thinks he does, he's wrong

Every mother's so
Better hear what I'm saying
Every mother's son
Will rise and fall one day

Seen it happen so many times, so many times before
Some man got so much money he doesn't worry no more
Or he's got such a pretty woman that'll treat him fine
My friends have all been fools
It happens every time


I'm not tryin' to preach to no one, to no one at all
Seen a lot of my good friends just rise to fall
'Cause they got so much money or a woman so fine
Well my friends have all been fools, it happens every time


What I say


What I say
Oh, every mother's son will rise and fall one day

And so it goes
