  • People always say
    I have a laugh
    Like my mother does
    Guess that makes sense

    She taught me how to smile
    When things get rough

    I've got her spirit
    She's always got my back
    When I look at her
    I think, I want to be just like that

    When I love I give it all I've got
    Like my mother does
    When I'm scared, I bow my head and pray
    Like my mother does

    When I'm weak and unpretty
    I know I'm beautiful and strong
    Because I see myself like my mother does
    Like my mother does

    I never met a stranger
    I can talk to anyone
    Like my mother does

    I let my temper fly
    And she can walk away
    When she's had enough

    She sees everybody
    For who they really are
    I'm so thankful for her guidance
    She helped me get this far

    When I love I give it all I've got
    Like my mother does
    When I'm scared, I bow my head and pray
    Like my mother does

    When I'm weak and unpretty
    I know I'm beautiful and strong
    Because I see myself like my mother does

    She's a rock
    She is grace
    She's an angel
    She's my heart and soul
    She does it all

    When I love I give it all I've got
    Like my mother does
    When I'm scared, I bow my head and pray
    Like my mother does

    When I'm weak and unpretty
    I know I'm beautiful and strong
    Because I see myself like my mother does
    Like my mother does

    I hear people sayin'
    I'm starting to look like my mother does Writer/s: LIZ ROSE, NATHAN CHAPMAN, NIKKI WILLIAMS
