Listen to Me

Music: Shawn Poon
Lyrics: Leonard Sam

Look, dear, do I ask for much?
You know, dear, so much happened today!
They’re all you think about, isn’t it?
What’s wrong, what are you saying!

Mother, what have you done?
Don’t you raise your voice at me!
Why did you end the lease?
It’s just business, can’t you see!

You’re upset now, what’s the matter?
You missed your son’s recital!

Please stop and listen to me!

I was just at 220
Oh, I’m your mother
Of course I already know

How I wish that place were history
You’ll spend more time at home with me!

God has called me to be there
Your own family you despise!
Their future don’t you even care
Not good business being nice!
Can you reconsider?
My mind’s made up, it’s final!

Why don’t you listen to me?

There’s a joy at 220
Your children need a father
And it’s complex to explain
I’ll not discuss this further!
Oh, if you could see and know
You must think I’m insane!

Is this your final stand?
Surely, there must be another way!
This conversation’s at an end
Can we talk about this another day?
Your stubbornness will cost you
Don’t say I didn’t warn you
Why don’t you listen to me?
Why don’t you listen to me?
