Lyrics to The Mother’s Day Song:
G                                        C                                      G
Every day you keep me safe and warm and loved and fed
G                                                 D
But today’s your special day, It was my turn instead
G                                              C                        G
So I got up at 5 a.m. I’ve been working hard since then
G                                                          D                G
Some things I didn’t get quite right, next year I’ll try again

Just for you I did my best to cut my own hair
Some places came out pretty good. And some are kind of bare
I washed all your nicest clothes, but the washer wasn’t free
So I used the dish washer Pretty smart of me!


C                            D          G                   Em
Remember no one’s perfect Every kid has faults
Remember it’s the thought that counts, more than the results
My heart was in the right place even though I did it wrong
C                          D                       C             D           G
It was all to say on Mother’s day my love for you is strong

I vacuumed really quietly I didn’t use the power
I cleaned your dirty iPad screen, I held it in the shower
I painted all the ceilings it was easy with the mop
Now the carpet’s painted too with cool rainbow drops!

I answered all your work emails with “Just leave me alone”
And we gave a prince from Scamdinavia a loan
I watered all the house plants with the garden hose
I forgot to turn it off sometimes that’s how it goes

Your car’s shiny inside and out with lots of olive oil
Who knew that oatmeal splatters up so high and far on boil
I tried to make you orange juice but I spilled it on the floor
I tried to fry you bacon we don’t have a stove no more

Since you can’t really cook this week I called the pizza place
I emptied out the fridge and freezer so there’s enough space
They should be here any time, two dozen pizza pies
I paid with your credit card, I hope that you’re surprised

    Hi. Since the Mother’s Day Song, Father’s Day Song, and that birthday song are all identical music tracks, there is just one instrumental download for all three. It’s a free link in the description of the YouTube video of The Mother’s Day Song.

    Please tell your son I’m glad he wants to use my song. 🙂

    Hello Bryant!
    I was delighted to listen to your song…
    It brought back so many memories of raising my 4 kids!
    They did so many crazy things as you wonderfully describe in your song LOL
    I was wondering if I could sing your song once at our local Church for Mothers DayCelebration Service ? I will sing & play acoustic guitar, with a couple children assisting me (maybe one more adult to help).
    If you give permission,we appreciate your kindness. if not , I understand.
    Have a great Day –
    Keep writing… Music is great medicine1
