Happy Mother’s Day

Some lyrical ponderings on mothers for the day.

I Want To Say a Little Something That’s Long Overdue
The Disrespect To Women Has Got To Be Through
To All The Mothers And Sisters And the Wives And Friends
I Want To Offer My Love And Respect To The End”

— Beastie Boys “Sure Shot”

“Mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys”

— Willie Nelson “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys”

Let’s all get up and dance to a song
That was a hit before your mother was born
Though she was born a long, long time ago
Your mother should know 
Your mother should know”

— The Beatles “Your Mother Should Know”

My mama loves, she loves me
She gets down on her knees and hugs me
She loves me like a rock
She rocks me like the rock of ages
And she loves me”

Mama told me not to come
“That ain’t the way to have fun, son””

— Three Dog Night “Mama Told Me(Not to Come)”
