  Live, Free Trade Hall, Manchester England UK - 17.may.1966  

Coal black glass don't make no mirror 
Coal black water don't make no tears 
You say you love me, with what may be love 
Don't you remember making, baby, love? 
Yes, you got your steam-drill, now you're lookin' for some kid 
To get it to work for you like your nine-pound hammer did.
But I know that you know that I know that you show 
Something is tearing up your mind.

Tell me mama
Tell me mama
Tell me mama, what is it? 
What's wrong with you this time? 

Black sunglass camee(???) don't even run
Tombstone badge on can't get it done
Fool's gold in your teeth and your cemetery hips
Stay outside of your graveyard lips
Yes, everybody's wondering when your friendship's gonna end
But come on baby, I'm your friend
And I know that you know that I know that you show 
Something's tearing up your mind.

Tell me mama
Tell me mama
Tell me mama, what is it? 
What's wrong with you this time? 

Oh, you sure please him but your face is red
And he can't get it, he's almost dead
Everybody sees you on your window ledge
How long is it gonna take for you to get off the edge?
You just gonna make everybody jump and roar
Now what you wanna go and do that for?
And I know that you know that I know that you show 
Something is tearing up your mind.

Tell me mama
Tell me mama 
Tell me mama, what is it? 
What's wrong with you this time?   up

Coal black glass don't make no mirror 
Coal black water don't make no tears 
You say you love me what with may be love 
Don't you remember making, baby, love? 
Yes, you got your steam-drill now you're lookin' for some aid

But I know you know I know you know 
Something is tearin' up your mind.

Tell me mama
Tell me mama
Tell me mama, what is it? 
What's wrong with you this time? 

Put your dark sunglasses on your Babylon chest
[Paint it/Penit(???)] your time but you know what's best
Penit(???) you lagging(???) but your cemetery grips
Facin' up border(???) with your graveyard lips 
Everybody haunts when your friendship ends
But come on baby, I'm your friend!
Sometimes right time's the right time to go an' now
What's resting on your mind?

Tell me mama

Oh, that your ...... but your face is red
Paint it your hiddin'(???) but your dyin' lead 
Get on your bangin'(???) and you're out on the edge
Come baby get off that window ledge
You're just gonna make everybody jump an' roar 
What you wanna go and do that for? 
And I know that you know that I know that you show 
Something is tearing up your mind.

Tell me mama
Tell me mama

  Live, Odeon Theatre, Liverpool UK - 14.may.1966   

Coal black glass don't make no mirrors
Coal black water don't make no tears
You say you love me with what may be love
Don't you remember makin', baby, love?
Yes, you got your steam-drill now, you're lookin' for some kid
To get it to work for you like your nine-pound hammer did.
But i know that you know that i know that you show
Something's tearing up your mind.

Tell me, mama
Tell me, mama
Tell me, mama, what is it?
What's wrong with you this time?

Pull on your gas gimmick (???), you get it done
Painted face on to make your pony run
Burst on time you got cemetery hips
Rolling outside of your graveyard lips
Yes i know -- wonderin' when your friendship ends
But come on baby, i'm your friend!
And i know that you know that i know that you show
Something's tearing up your mind.

Tell me, mama
Tell me, mama
Tell me, mama, what is it?
What's wrong with you this time?

Oh you're sure pleased Yankie(???) is dead 
Manage your trading and you're almost dead
Time slow training on your window ledge
Everybody sees you're nearly on the edge
But you're just gonna make everybody jump an' roar
What you wanna go and do that for?
And i know that you know that i know that you show
Something is tearing up your mind.

Tell me, mama
Tell me, mama
Tell me, mama, what is it?
What's wrong with you this time?  up
