My Mum


Lullabies in vain, but for me. You can tell me why all the stars are shining I’ll rest the eyes, try to sleep. Then the ocean blue, I can tell you just why You took them all out like a gangster Just as they thought they’d take the piss They met the Judge, the Jury and the Hanger. You had to do it for your kids. Thank you for giving me life, I rather like it. Every day I know the strength of your love, there’s nothing like it How well you get through on the phone. Like a ray of sun, shining on your son We came to your Sister Act show. And dressed up like a nun, I still picked out my Mum And cried with the purest feeling of love I saw you singing in the spotlight Cried at the Christmas film with you Cos we’ve had a wonderful life Thank you for giving me mine. I rather like it. Every day I know the strength of your love, there’s nothing like it.

Mother, this time I might have beat them. I was ready to dance, but I never got the chance. You took them all out like a gangster. Soon as they thought they’d take the piss They met the Judge, the Jury and the Hanger You only did it for your kids.
