Lyrics:

MAMA SANG 'THE WREN'

Roses and Sweet William in the rock wall
We'd play in the woods behind the house till night fall
We'd say goodnight to all our friends
Another summer day would end
And Mama sang

She sang while doing laundry in the basement
We'd be skipping rope out on the pavement
Counting pennies for the store
Playing cards on the living room floor
And Mama sang

Savouring the world inside the sound
She opened our hearts and made us proud
Sailing to the high note at the end
Daddy and I would always cry
When Mama sang 'The Wren'

Years later, we're all in different places
But I close my eyes and I can still see all those faces
Dinner party at Christmas time
Snowy windows and the clock would chime
And Mama sang

Savouring the world inside the sound
She opened our hearts and made us proud
Sailing to the high note at the end
Daddy and I would always cry
When Mama sang 'The Wren'

Mama sang
Every song with all her heart
Mama sang
She's still singing dawn to dark

Savouring the world inside the sound
She opened our hearts and made us proud
Sailing to the high note at the end
Daddy and I would always cry
When Mama sang 'The Wren'
