Beautiful music retains its beauty , if written skillfully it also retains its relevance to the world today.



Mother, do you think they'll drop the bomb?
Mother, do you think they'll like this song?
Mother, do you think they'll try to break my balls?
Ooooh aah, mother, should I build the wall?

Mother, should I run for president?
Mother, should I trust the government?
Mother, will they put me in the firing line?
Ooooh aah, is it just a waste of time?

Hush now, baby, baby, don't you cry
Mama's gonna make all of your nightmares come true
Mama's gonna put all of her fears into you
Mama's gonna keep you right here under her wing
She won't let you fly but she might let you sing
Mama's gonna keep baby cosy and warm

Ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe
Of course Mama's gonna help build the wall

Mother, do you think she's good enough?
Mother, do you think she's dangerous?
Mother, will she tear your little boy apart?
Oooh aah, mother, will she break my heart?

Hush now, baby, baby, don't you cry
Mama's gonna check out all your girlfriends for you
Mama won't let anyone dirty get through
Mama's gonna wait up till you get in
Mama will always find out where you've been
Mamma's gonna keep baby healthy and clean

Ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe
You'll always be a baby to me

Mother, didn't need to be so high

The world would be a sorry place without Pink Floyd , food for the ears.

They will definitely try to break your balls!

I love Roger Waters' acoustic dirges such as "If" and "Grantchester Meadows."

I was going to rage against that short dude too! Then ramble on about the Misfits for a while about how over rated they were. Then maybe reawaken the argument "that Rollins can so kick his a$$…" and mention the time he was knocked out back stage!!

Ah, I miss the 90s!

Roger Waters is cool too, I guess!!

Beautiful. Personally to me the music of today just doesn't have the heart to it like the music did back in the eighty's.

Yeah but that was back in the day when he still had his voice. I am convinced the man can't sing a note anymore and most of the more recent videos of him appearing to do so are somehow faked. Been a longtime fan of Floyd and I started getting suspicious of his live vocals when I watched his concert DVD he put out (I think it was In The Flesh Live) where I noticed at least one section of Every Stranger's Eyes sounded exactly the same as it does on the album (and you know what that means).

In the years since I have noticed if you look for videos of him performing live it is not hard to find instances where he is "singing" with his real voice and sounds terrible.

Conclusion - Something happened to his voice somewhere between Pros & Cons and Amused To Death and he hasn't been the same since. I mean, he was never David Gilmour but he used to be able to sing well enough to do songs like the ones you mentioned. And I agree they were nice.

Also, I think that video is from when they filmed The Wall concert and screwed up the exposure to the point to where it was basically useless. I heard they had somewhat restored it but I kind of doubt they ever got it right if there wasn't much there to get out of it.

It's just part of aging maybe. Those vocal chords get worn out like rubber bands and he did a lot of screaming into a microphone.
