Lyrics:

MOTHER

Mother more than 60 years old
Sleeping your nights all alone
Thinking of time running out
Remember the past with a tear in your eyes

Your children have grown up and gone
They've been moving out into the world
And you, tinted hair and glasses
A pair of slippers and flowers you wear

A line on your face
A smile and a prayer
Sweet memories that comfort your dreams
While seasons are changing
And your nephews are yelling
Looking after them
Your best time returns

The smell of a pie in your rooms
Washing dishes and cooking for few
Your husband's picture on the kitchen-board
And a small Cross hanging there on the wall

A line on your face
A smile and a prayer
Sweet memories that comfort your dreams
While seasons are changing
And your nephews are yelling
Looking after them
Your best time returns
Looking after them
Your best time returns
