Mother


Mama can you fix my hair for the dance?
Mama can you hem my dress if you get a chance?
Mama do you think I'm pretty or nice?
Mama do you think a boy will look at me twice?
Mama could I wear makeup for my date?
Mama getting home could I be a little bit late?
Mama are you glad I'm your daughter?
And to every question she said yes,
She's the best Mama in the world I guess!

Mom could you help fix the brakes on my bike?
Mom would you mind if I play a new record I like?
Mom could I have a third helping of dessert?
Mom could you put a button on my blue shirt?
Mom can you get grass stains off my new jeans?
Mom do you think I'll find the girl of my dreams?
Mom are you glad I'm your son?
And to every question she said yes,
She's the best Mom in the world I guess!

Mommy I'm tired can I sit on your lap?
Mommy if I'm good could I skip my nap?
Mommy could you stop and play with me?
Mommy can you count to a zillion and three?
Mommy can you get ink stains out of the rug?
Mommy could you smile and give me a hug?
Mommy are you glad that I'm your child?
And to every question she said yes,
She's the best Mommy in the world I guess!

Mother were we like that when we were kids?
Mother can you get grape stains out of bibs?
Mother do you have time to perm my hair?
Mother could you help me upholster a chair?
Mother can you baby sit Wednesday night?
Mother do you think this dress looks all right?
Mother are you glad I live close by?
And to every question she said yes,
She's the best Mother in the world I guess!

There are famous Mothers in history,
And famous Mothers of mystery.
Mothers who have birthed a Nation,
A special Mother bore a son for our salvation.
Mothers who have given their all.
Mothers who are great and small.
Mothers of many and Mothers of few.
But of all the precious Mothers most blest.
Your the best Mother in the world I guess!

Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
