From the album A World of My Own

Lyrics

Way back in 1963
Come on let’s start us a family
When Cupid’s bow was shiny and new
Then that November baby was due

A beautiful boy with a beautiful smile
A bundle of joy with a wonderful style
A style he would learn from the nurture of you

And as he grew she knew all the right things to teach him
And through her watchful eye she knew just how to reach him

CHORUS:
A mother’s love, was there ever a thing so wonderful
Sent from above, tell me what would we do if they weren’t there to see us through

And now that boy’s grown into a man
Too proud to reach for a helping hand
They raised him strong to stand on his own
But if he needs, there’s always a home

Someday he knew he would make them so proud
More than a face blending into the crowd
Off to the races, how can you lose?

She made it seem so easy to raise up a good man
And she would be so pleased to lend a helping hand with his own little man

CHORUS

She’ll always try her best to catch you if you fall
And if your life’s a mess she’ll be the one who makes it all too clear
She’ll steer you back the right way

Someday he knew he would make them so proud
More than a face blending into the crowd
Off to the races, how can you lose?

CHORUS
