I had no mother, alone in my life,
I wished for a mother to have as my wife,
Day after day I prayed as I do,
Then one day I ran into you.
You were the mother I waited to see.
You were sweet and real smart and sexy to me.
I needed you not just for me,
But also what God gave us, the family you see.
You're the best mother; I could have as my wife.
You're the only mother I want in my life.
We are not like the Cleavers as seen on TV,
We're just a real life family.
All in all it's about like I dreamed,
A wife and five kids,
20 Gerbils, a dog,
Three cats to be weaned,
Very little money,
A house to be cleaned,
Kids always fighting,
We're the neighbors who screamed!
Not quite like I dreamed…
We have our own problems; they haven't scared me away,
Ill always love you day after day,
And you're the only mother that I want to lay!
With all the turmoil, that has headed our way,
I always thank God for you,
At the end of each day!
If I could trade you for a big pot of gold,
I would rather live poor,
Seeing the mother of my kids growing old.
I love you, you MOTHER!
