Mama, you mean the world to me.


You gave me a drawer in your kitchen You gave me the room with a view of the yard Whatever the hurt, you knew right where to kiss it You gave me the best of your heart


And you carried my rocks in your pocket Flowers and feathers and butterfly wings You had an answer for all of my questions You showed me wonderful things


I know that it hasn't been easy I hope that I love like you do 'Cause I know that this world would be better If everyone had a mother like you


You make the best macaroni We never cared that it came from a box The mom in the stands always clapping her hands Started cheering and still haven't stopped


And you held me when I came home crying 'Cause someone said something that just wasn't true I always said that Janelle was my best friend But really it's always been you


I know that it hasn't been easy I hope that I love like you do 'Cause I know that this world would be better If everyone had a mother like you
