Inspired by this thread (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?p=5909869#post5909869).

There's a dream I keep having
Where my mama comes to me
And kneels down over by the window
And says a prayer for me
Got my own way of prayin'
But every one's begun
With a southern accent
Where I come from

Tom Petty, Southern Accent

(And in deference to the aforementioned thread...)

Mama, mama, please no more husbands
I don't know who my daddy is.

Pretty much all of Pink Floyd's "The Wall".

Hmm. maybe a greater challenge would be to find rock sonds that mention mothers in a positive way...

I'll always love my momma
She's my favorite girl
I'll always love my momma
She brought me in this world

Jim Morrison's oedipus complex couldn't be more clear than it is on the Doors first album on the very popular (and long) track entitled The End.

Your mother she's an heiress, owns a block in Saint John's Wood
And your father'd be there with her
If he only could
But don't play with me, 'cause you're playing with fire

Rolling Stones, Play With Fire
