lyrics

Learning to live, learning to die
You’ve got time enough when you’re young
Walking around with your head in the clouds
Unaware of the damage you’ve done
Mama can’t hold you no more
Daddy can’t tell you the score

When some foreign girl
Comes and captures your heart
Will you know of the place that she’s from
As you wander around all alone in the dark
Will you hear all the songs that she’s sung
Mama can’t hold you no more
Daddy can’t tell you the score

Man made the atlas, man made the cages
And man loved the girl for her charms
And he watered the world with the blood of the ages
And went by the light of the stars
Mama can’t hold you no more
Daddy can’t tell you the score

So put down your troubles and wait for tomorrow
You’ll only be gone for awhile
And long distant faces get lost in the wires
As they travel for mile after mile
Mama can’t hold you no more
Daddy can’t tell you the score

And you wish that he could but it’s good
Now that you’re back at your door
