Mother Like Mine

  • She's the sky that holds the clouds
    She's the lady of the house
    A blind believer in all I dare to be
    There's no safer place I've found
    Than the shoulder of her white night gown
    Oh I've got the best and the worst of her in me
    And I'd share her if I could

    So the wars would all be over
    'Cause she'd raise us all as friends
    And no one would ever wonder if somebody wanted them
    We'd walk on grass that's greener
    And our cares would all be freer
    If the world had a mother like mine

    She's our father's one great love
    She's the one he wanted most
    She's the light in the window of the house I grew up in
    She takes the midnight call
    She's the bravest of us all
    Still she sings in the garden, she let's her hair down in

    Oh the wars would all be over
    'Cause she'd raise us all as friends
    And no one would ever wonder, if somebody wanted them
    Tonight would be easier
    And our dreams would all be deeper
    If the world had a mother like mine

    Don't go away, don't go away from me
    Oh I understand, she is a helping hand still
    I have to say

    She's the sky that holds the clouds
    She's the lady of our house
    We all need her, but no one more than me

    Oh the wars would all be over
    'Cause she'd raise us all as friends
    And no one would ever wonder, if somebody wanted them
    We'd walk on grass that's greener
    And the dishes would all be cleaner
    If the world had a mother like mine
