Caring, loving, as mothers all in heart
That they are gods so said we do agree
Things do change but at times for all'fair'art

Mother she could find a girl so smart
For son so sweet her choice her'fair'degree
Caring, loving, as mothers all in heart

Busy preparations mounted high cost
Forward mother shopping, spending on spree
Things do change but at times for all'fair'art

Wishing pappa shouting decreed 'cut cost'
Wedding planning done rich momma was free
Caring, loving, as mothers all in heart

When all was well steady going so smart
Then came the news shocking 'no jamboree'
Things do change but at times for all'fair'art

Girl'fair'fled to beat son to loose heart
Alarmed pappa attacked momma fair free
Caring, loving, as mothers all in heart
Things do change but at times for all'fair'art
