He got here and wrinkled scared and cryin'
The she took him up and held him to her breast 
And he sure was glad to get what mama offered 
Then he went to sleep and put his fears to rest

It didn't seem to matter what he needed 
He could always count on mama to supply 
And regardless of the sleep she might be losin'
He always found a twinkle in her eye

 There ought to be a hall of fame for mamas 
Creation's most unique and precious pearls
And heaven help us always to remember 
That the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world 

She taught him all the attributes of greatness 
That she knew he couldn't learn away from home
And by the time she wore the cover off her bible 
Her hair was gray and her little man was gone

 There ought to be a hall of fame for mamas 
Creation's most unique and precious pearls
And heaven help us always to remember 
That the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world 

Yes, the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world
