lyrics

THE MORNING HEAVY

Mother, Mother Theresa
We should have mourned you more
You traveled far and worked hard
To do the work of God
Mother Mary, Mother Mary
Is she the last of the righteous?

And sister Di
You’ve gone before your time
And Elton sang a song in your name
While the whole world watched and sobbed
I hope your dying will do some good someday
Besides making pataratzi rich, rich and feeling good

Once an Eagle
You will always fly like an angel
Into my arms

Find the good and praise It
The morning heavy and a heavy heart

Never saw your pain
As I see you standing in the rain
You both spoke but we didn’t listen
Just watched TV and said,
“It’s not our problem, it’s not our concern”

Once an Eagle
You will always fly like angel
Into my arms (2x)

Find the good and praise It
The morning heavy and a heavy heart (2x)
