Eric Clapton - Mother's Lament Lyrics

  • (traditional)
  • Are we rolling? a one, a two, a three, a four...
  • A mother was washing her baby one night;
  • The youngest of ten and a delicate mite.
  • The mother was poor and the baby was thin;
  • twas naught but a skeleton covered with skin.
  • The mother turned round for a soap off the rack.
  • She was only a moment but when she turned back
  • Her baby had gone, and in anguish she cried,
  • Oh, where has my baby gone? the angels replied:
  • Oh, your baby has gone down the plug hole.
  • Oh, your baby has gone down the plug.
  • The poor little thing was so skinny and thin,
  • He should have been washed in a jug, in a jug.
  • Your baby is perfectly happy;
  • He wont need a bath anymore.
  • Hes a-muckin about with the angels above,
  • Not lost but gone before.
  • Do you want to do it again?
