My music teacher taught me Mother of Mine while I was in class 4. Ever since it has been one of my favourites to sing to MJ.
Mother you gave me happiness, much more than words can say .. /
I thank the lord that he may bless you, every night and every day …
I feel this is one of those precious songs because the lyrics speak volumes about a mother-child bond .. A bond of unconditional love and a sense of security and calm we feel with our mothers.
The other song that comes to mind almost like its twin is Bachelor Boy by Cliff Richard.
When I was young my father said/
Son I have something to say …/
He said, “son you are a bachelor boy and that’s the way to stay… Until your dying day
These songs remain etched lyrics and tunes intact, any time ready to sing and sing along… 🙂
