She's the sky that holds the clouds
She's the lady of the house
A blind believer in all I dare to be
There's no safer place I've found
Than the shoulder of her white night gown
Oh I've got the best and the worst of her in me
And I'd share her if I could

So the wars would all be over
'Cause she'd raise us all as friends
And no one would ever wonder if somebody wanted them
We'd walk on grass that's greener
And our cares would all be freer
If the world had a mother like mine

She's our father's one great love
She's the one he wanted most
She's the light in the window of the house I grew up in
She takes the midnight call
She's the bravest of us all
Still she sings in the garden, she let's her hair down in

Oh the wars would all be over
'Cause she'd raise us all as friends
And no one would ever wonder, if somebody wanted them
Tonight would be easier
And our dreams would all be deeper
If the world had a mother like mine

Don't go away, don't go away from me
Oh I understand, she is a helping hand still
I have to say

She's the sky that holds the clouds
She's the lady of our house
We all need her, but no one more than me

Oh the wars would all be over
'Cause she'd raise us all as friends
And no one would ever wonder, if somebody wanted them
We'd walk on grass that's greener
And the dishes would all be cleaner
If the world had a mother like mine

Oh like mine
