My little girl came up to me in the kitchen this evenin'
 While I was fixin' supper. And she handed me
A piece of paper she'd been writing on, and
 After wiping my hands on my apron I read it
And this is what she said.

For mowing the yard, five dollars 
For making my own bed this week, one dollar  Going to the store, fifty cents
 Playing with my sister while you went to the store 
Twenty-five cents  Taking out the trash one dollar  Getting a good report card, five dollards 
And for raking the yard, two dollars  Total of fourteen dollas and seventy-five cents.

Well, I looked at her standing there expectantly 
And a found memory flashed through my mind
And so I picked up the pen and turning the paper 
Over this is what I wrote.

For the nine months I carried you
Growin' inside of me no charge 
For the nights I sat up with you
 Doctored and prayed for you no charge 
For the toys that you chose 
And for wiping you nose there's no charge 
When you add it all up the full cost of my love
Is no charge.

Well, when she finished reading she had
 Great big old tears in her eyes and she looked 
Up at me and said mommy I sure do love you
Then she took the pen and in great big letters 
She wrote, paid in full.

When you add it all up the cost of real love
Is no charge.
