She said my son I beg of you
I have a wish that must come true
The last thing you can do
For mama

 Please promise me that you will stay
And take my place while I'm away
And give the children love each day
I had to cry what could I say?

How hard I tried to find the words 
I prayed she would not see me cry
So much to say that should be heard 
But only time to say goodbye to mama

They say in time that you will forget 
Yet still today my eyes are wet
I tell myself to smile for Mama

Now soon there'll be another spring
And I will start remembering
The way she loved to hear us sing
Her favourite song 'Ave Maria'

Ave Maria 

The children all have grown up now
I kept my promise to mama
I cannot guide them anymore 
I've done my best all for mama

Ave Maria 

 Still this seems so very small 
For all
She did for me
