Your Mother Should Have Told You

Robert PalmerBuy this song

Your looks are sensational Where do I begin?
You're so unbelievable It must be a sin

I try to keep pace with you
But I never win
You're on the attack again
I'll have to give in

You look fully grown
I thought you'd have known 
Your mother should have told you Girls turn into women Your mother should have warned you
You fall in love and then

Your mother should have told you
You're sinking or you're swimming Your mother should have warned you
Boys turn into men

Her manners are counterfeit But she knows how to act
And when you get used to it
It's better than fact

You never can tell
The real from pretend You liked the beginning Well, wait till the end

You look fully formed
You should have been warned 
Your mother should have told you Girls turn into women Your mother should have warned you
You fall in love and then

Your mother should have told you
You're sinking or you're swimming Your mother should have warned you
Boys turn into men

You look fully grown
I thought you'd have known 
Your mother should have told you Girls turn into women Your mother should have warned you
Boys turn into men

Your looks are sensational Where do I begin?
You're so unbelievable It must be a sin

I thought you'd have known You look fully grown
Well, attend to your own

Your mother should have told you Girls turn into women Your mother should have warned you
You fall in love and then

Your mother should have told you
You're sinking or you're swimming Your mother should have warned you
Boys turn into men

Your mother should have told you Girls turn into women Your mother should have told you
You fall in love and then

Your mother should have told you
You're sinking or you're swimming Your mother should have told you
Boys turn into men
