My Mother drives me mad!
My mother drives me mad
Because my mother is mad
My mother drives me wild
I am her only child
So I get all the stick
And have to have it, double quick
She doesn't know how to wait
Whereas I am always late
So you can picture the scene
Two opposite ends of extreme
My mother drove Dad mad too
I wondered how he ever got through
But now I really know...
You have to let your emotions show
To swear and bang about
To let the frustration out
Cos my mother will drive me mad
Though she's the best Mum I ever had
My mother's madness gets worse
Sometimes with the dementia curse
She asks me the same question time again
Till I get fit to scream
I end up yelling and shouting
My own sanity I'm doubting
And as for mum's sanity it's gone
But mine won't still be here for long
My mother drives me mad!
When really it is quite sad
Sometimes we end up laughing
The hysteria breaking the intensity we are in
And when I see her smile
So natural and so kind
I know I love my mum
And so much for everything she has done
She adopted me and gave me back my life
She removed me from my strife
And now I try and do the same
To repay her kindness and restrain
As she had to restrain from murdering me!
Because of how challenging I could be...
So now she drives me mad
And I get to pay back the loyalty I have had
I stand by my word to help her in her care
As for me she was always there
And mad though she's making me
We're as happy as we can be.
