All My Life (Right Or Wrong).

Mama I know you worry,
‘Bout me and my desires,
I’m growin’ up in a hurry,
I’m burnin’ like a forest fire,
But Mama I’m not yet ready,
To move out of my room,
My life is not quite steady,
Enough to part from you,
And Mama I want you to know,
That even when we part,
No matter where we may go,
You’ll never leave my heart,

O’, Mama can I sing you a love song,
Strange as it may seem,
But all my life, right or wrong,
You were singing your love to me,
And Mama you sure could sing,

Mama my life is a wonder,
For the strength of a woman like you,
Your will is louder than thunder,
Your patience is nothing new,
I know as my world is changing,
I will stand out from the rest,
‘Cos in the midst of my rearranging,
Stands you, my Mama, the best,
And in my days of indecision,
When fear inflicts a cost,
I’ll rest my soul convictions,
In me and you and God,

O’, Mama can I sing you a love song,
Strange as it may seem,
But all my life, right or wrong,
You were singing your love to me,
And Mama you sure could sing,

Mama I know you’ve hidden,
Your tears in my company,
Afraid you’d fail, but you didn’t,
Not by the looks of me,
And Mama I hope you are finding,
A comfort in the truth,
‘Cos it bears a constant reminding,
Of the love I feel for you,
And I am ever so happy,
‘Cos you wouldn’t see me blue,
I only hope God will help me,
To be a someone like you,

O’, Mama can I sing you a love song,
Strange as it may seem,
But all my life, right or wrong,
You were singing your love to me,
And Mama you sure could sing,

Yeah, Mama you sure could sing.

  1. Aw, this is great. I wanna Mama like yours.
    I really liked this stanza, especially 'Your will is louder than thunder'

    Your strength is nothing new
