A Cautionary Song lyrics song by The Decemberists

Here is the song lyric of The Decemberists : and you can also sing and watch music video

there's a place your mother goes when everybody else is soundly sleeping
through the lights of beacon street
and if you listen you can hear her weeping, she's weeping, cause the
gentlemen are calling and the snow is softly falling on her petticoats. and
she's standing in the harbour and she's waiting for the sailors in the
jolly boat. see how they approach

with dirty hands and trousers torn they grapple 'til she's safe within
their keeping
a gag is placed between her lips to keep her sorry tongue from any
speaking, or screaming
and they row her out to packets where the sailor's sorry racket calls for
maidenhead
and she's scarce above the gunnels when her clothes fall to a bundle and
she's laid in bed on the upper deck

and so she goes from ship to ship, her ankles clasped her arms so rudely
pinioned
'til at last she's satisfied the lot of the marina's teeming minions, in
their opinions

and they tell her not to say a thing to cousin, kindred, kith or kin or
she'll end up dead
and they throw her thirty dollars and return her to the harbor where she
goes to bed, and this is how you're fed

so be kind to your mother, though she may seem an awful bother, and the
next time she tries to feed you collard greens, remember what she does when
you're asleep
