Beetlejuice the Musical - Dead Mom Lyrics


"Dead Mom" is a song performed by Sophia Anne Caruso (Lydia) from the musical Beetlejuice.

LYDIA:
Hey Mom, Dead Mom
I need a little help here
I'm prob'ly talking to myself here
But Dead Mom I gotta ask
Are you really in the ground?
Cause I feel you all around me
Are you here, Dead Mom?
Dead Mom

Dead Mom, my father is the greatest of pretenders
I wish his perfect picket fences
Would impale him through the heart
Every day he's staring at me
Like all "hurry up get happy
Move along
Forget about your mom"

But Daddy's in denial
Daddy doesn't wanna feel
He wants me to smile
And clap like a performing seal
Ignored it for a while
But Daddy's lost his mind for real
You won't believe the mess that we've become

You held my hand
And life came easy
Now jokes don't land
And no one sees me
Nothing seems to fit
Mamma is this it?
Are you receiving?
I want something to believe in

Oh I'm done
Take me where my soul can run
Or I'll be in my bedroom
Wake me when I'm twenty one
Daddy's moving forward
Daddy didn't lose a mom

Mamma won't you send a sign?
I'm running out of hope and time
A plague of mice, a lightning strike
Or drop a nuclear bomb

No more playing Daddy's game
I'll go insane if things don't change
Whatever it takes to make him say your name
Dead Mom
