      About "Bad Wisdom"

      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "Bad Wisdom"

      Mother the doctor knows something is wrong
      Cause my body has strange information
      He's looked in my eyes and knows I'm not a child
      But he doesn't dare ask the right question

      Mother my friends are no longer my friends
      And the games we once played have no meaning
      I've gone serious and shy and they can't figure why
      So they've left me to my own daydreaming

      What price to pay
      For bad wisdom
      What price to pay
      For bad wisdom
      Too young to know
      Too much too soon
      Bad wisdom
      Bad wisdom

      Mother you've taught me the laws are so fine
      If I'm good that I will be protected
      I've fallen through the crack and there's no getting back
      And I'll never trust whoever gets elected

      Mother your eyes have gone suddenly cold
      And it wasn't what I was expecting
      Once I did think that I'd find comfort there
      And instead you've gone hard and suspecting

      What price to pay
      For bad wisdom
      What price to pay
      For bad wisdom
      Too young to know
      Too much too soon
      Bad wisdom
      Bad wisdom

      Mother I'm cut at the root like a weed
      Cause there's no one to hear my small story
      Just like a woman who walks in the street
      I will pay for my life with my body

      What price to pay
      For bad wisdom
      What price to pay
      For bad wisdom
      Too young to know
      Too much too soon
      Bad wisdom
      Bad wisdom
