Mothers Day Song


I don't remember much about when I was born
But I know you took care of me all day long
I see photos of me making mess after mess
Mother, when ever did you get any rest?

I'm glad you're my mother and I'm glad I'm your child
I'm sorry if sometimes I act way too wild
but I know you wouldn't have it any other way
I love you, Mom. Happy Mother's Day

I managed to grow and you helped all the way
from diapers to bottles to grade after grade
though I don't say this often I wish I did
after all mom I am only a kid

You know I think you're pretty so don't take this wrong
but you look kind of tired pretty much all day long
you drive me all over like a New York City cab
by nighttime you look like you had it

Now that I'm older I look back and see
all that you did just because of me
you gave up a lot you know I know that now
I'll do the same for my kids someday

I'm glad you're my mother and I'm glad I'm your child
I'm sorry if sometimes I acted too wild
but I know you wouldn't have it any other way
I love you, Mom. Happy Mother's Day
