We're having a party tonight;
A birthday for our guiding light.
When everyone comes
To celebrate Mums.
It's her who has kept us so tight.
My family's a big one and we
Aware that, were it not for she,
And all that she did
When we were a kid
And huddled about at her knee
Would never have turned out so well.
For, though we put our Mom through hell,
We always knew that,
At the drop of a hat,
She'd come bail you out of a cell.
I'm kidding - No-one's been to jail.
But Mom's always there... Without fail
She's holding your hand,
So she'd understand
If we'd had to ask her for bail.
