Johnny Guitar Watson

Mijn ouders hadden in 1976 een Hitachi SDT 2680R Stereo Music Centre gekocht bij Albert Heijn in Deventer. Op één van de cassettebandjes met opnames van de top 30 stond 'A Real Mother For Ya' van 'Johnny Guitar Watson'. Ik vond dit meteen al een te gek nummer!

In de jaren '80 zat Mark B. in Arnhem op school. Daar waren destijds veel platezaken. Ik heb hem gevraagd of hij eens een CD van J.G.W. voor mij kon kopen. De CD die hij meenam was 'A Real Mother'

Johnny 'Guitar' Watson - A Real Mother For Ya

Wanna buy a new car
but the price ain't right (ha ha, ain't that cold)

Started riding a bike (huh, listen)
They're making milk out of powder (yeah they are)
Got the babies crying (poor babies, they don't know what that stuff is)
Rents going up higher (yes it is)
Got the parents lying (I'll pay you tomorrow)

Make you want to run for cover, yes it will
And if you look you will discover, yeah
Lord it's a real mother for ya, Ow!

Dance to the music, yeah
