She came here from a one horse town
And i let my defences down
I thought that she was heaven sent
But straight to hell is where i went

“Your mother must be very proud
Your mother must be very proud”
So proud her eyes fill up with tears
Each time she hears your name

Her heroine was paula yates
As famous as the men she dates
And heroin is what she’ll do
To stop the feelings coming through
You know they made her spitroast at both ends
Then made her airtight with his friends
His last girlfriend was on the game
Now she’s the same

“Your mother must be very proud
Your mother must be very proud”
So proud her eyes fill up with tears
Each time she hears your name

Don’t think i don’t know what it’s all about
Your guilty conscience cos you got caught out
You took the money lying flat
Now isn’t there a word for that?
And when you’re playing happy families
Will you deny you ever knew me please?
There’s one last thing i have to say
I never loved you/i still love you
But anyway
But anyway

“Your mother must be very proud
Your mother must be very proud”
So how come she looks so ashamed?
Ashamed to see your name

“Your mother must be very proud
Your mother must be very proud”
So proud she wants to hide away
In dreams of yesterday

So go back to your one horse town
Instead of bringing this place down
And as for me and my new kid…
I hope you’re proud of what you did

“Your mother must be very proud
Your mother must be very proud”
How proud do you think she’s gonna be
To hear the truth from me?
Finally…
