Lyrics

Motherly love
Motherly love
Forget about the brotherly
And otherly love

Motherly love is just the thing for you
You know, your mother's gonna love you
'Till you don't know what to do

The Mothers got love that'll drive you mad
They're ravin' 'bout the way we do
Don't need to feel lonely,
Don't need to feel sad,
If we ever get a hold on you

(What you need is)
Motherly love
(Come on, get it now)
Motherly love

Forget about the brotherly
And otherly love
Motherly love is just the thing for you
You know, your mother's gonna love you
'Till you don't know what to do


Nature's been good to this here band
Don't ever think we're shy
Send us up some little groupies
And we'll take their hands
And rock 'em 'till they sweat and cry

(What you need is)
Motherly love
(Get it now)
Motherly love

Forget about the brotherly
And otherly love
Motherly love is just the thing for you
You know, your mother's gonna love you
'Till you don't know what to do

We can love you 'till you have a heart attack
You can best believe that's true
We'll bite your neck,
And scratch your back
'Till you don't know what to do

(What you need is)
Motherly love
Motherly love
Forget about the brotherly
And otherly love
Motherly love is just the thing for you
You know, your mother's gonna love you
'Till you don't know what to do

You know, I got little motherly love for you, baby
You know, I got little motherly love for you, honey
You know, it doesn't bother me at all that you're eight-teen years old
'Cause I got a little motherly love for you, baby

Notes About This Song

FZ liner notes on "Freak Out!" (1966): "'Motherly Love' is a body commercial for the band. It is sung during live performances to advice the female audience of potential delights to be derived from social contact with us folks. Trivial poop."
