Mom’s Ma


You taught me how to dance
And hid me when you had the chance
Never forgotten
Always Remembered
My Mom’s ma

Rock n’ Roll and the Blues
Occupied your dancing shoes
Never forgotten
Always Remembered
My Mom’s ma

A King would’ve enjoyed your cooking
Yet you did it for your underling
Never forgotten
Always Remembered
My Mom’s ma

An accomplice to my wrongs
And a teacher to my rights
Never forgotten
Always remembered
My Mom’s ma

You made me a better man
Always telling me that I can
Never forgotten
Always Remembered
My Mom’s ma

Then you started forgetting
Without our understanding
Never forgotten
Always Remembered
My Mom’s ma

The last thing you said to me
I will never forget, but you did
Never forgotten
Always Remembered
My Mom’s ma
