Lyrics
I've been around the world, you bet, but never went to school
Hard knocks are all I seem to get, perhaps I've been a fool;
But still, some educated folks, supposed to be so swell,
Would fail if they were called upon a simple word to spell.
Now if you'd like to put me to the test,
There's one dear name that I can spell the best!

M is for the million things she g-ave me
O means only that she's growing old
T is for the tears she shed to save me
H is for her heart of purest gold
E is for her eyes with love-light shining
R means right and right she'll always be
Put them all together they spell moth-er
A word that means the world to me

When I was but a baby, long before I learned to walk,
While lying in my cradle, I would try my best to talk;
It wasn't long before I spoke and all the neighbors heard,
My folks were very proud of me for "Mother" was the word.
Although I'll never lay a claim to fame,
I'm satisfied that I can spell the name:

M is for the mercy she possess-es
O means that I owe her all I own
T is for her tender sweet caresses
H is for her hands that made a home
E means everything she's done to help me
R means real and regular you see
Put them all together they spell moth-er
A word that means the world to me
