                "Mom & Dad" - Frank Zappa

This is from the Frank Zappa Songbook and appeared on the Mothers album
"Were Only In It For The Money".

Em *   Em7      Fmaj9  CsusD  DsusE  EsusF#          DsusE
       Mama!    Mama!  Some - one    said  they made some noise

         CsusD     Cmaj9b5  F         Em *
the cops have shot some     girls and boys.

C6/9       Am9      DsusE     Fmaj9      C6/9       Am9
You'll sit home and drink all night they looked too weird it

DsusE       Em *
served them right.

(repeat the above)

Ever take a minute just to show a real emotion,

in between the moisture cream and velvet facial lotion?

Bbmaj9         Abmaj9      Bbmaj9             Abmaj9
Ever tell your kids you're glad that they can think?

Bbmaj9       Abmaj9           Bbmaj9             Abmaj7
Ever say you loved them? Ever let them watch you drink?

Ever wonder why your daughter looked so sad? It's

                                           Em *
such a drag to love a plastic Mom and Dad.

       F6/9       CsusD DsusE EsusF#                DsusE
Mama!  Mama! Your child was   killed in the park to-day,

     CsusD              F       Em *
Shot by the cops as she quietly lay.

C6/9   Am9         DsusE      Fmaj9                 Em
By the side of the creeps she knew. They killed her too.

The chord shapes are

Em7 Fmaj9 CsusD DsusE EsusF# Cmaj9b5 F

C6/9 Am9 F6/9 Bbmaj9 Abmaj9 Abmaj7

Also the opening riff which reappears through out the song (marked as Em *) is


The ending tacet is:

 They killed her  too.

The last chord should be played as an arpeggio.
