When I was just a little one
My mama used to tell me

“Don’t loose your head
You’ll get there
Life is hard
But not unfair”

It wasn’t long ago
I learned I have been played for a fool
But I let it go- I let it go
We must keep our spirits High!

Come to me mother
And whisper in my ear
Tomorrow is another day
And soon another year

It’s hard to run fast as time slips away
And I didn’t begin to love you like I should
Anyway

So pick up those oars
And row madly up the stream
Put more juice in the engine
Let me see a little steam!

Years and years of rowing
Up and down
It seems
To port town to port town
They're trying to find the sea

Come to me mother
I want to know you are near
We're closer than we’ve ever been
It’s never been so clear

“Life is too short”
Well that’s what they say
and I didn’t begin to love you like I should
Anyway

Come to me mother
And whisper in my ear
Tomorrow is another day
And soon another year

It’s hard to run fast as time slips away
And I didn’t begin to love you
Yes I didn't begin to love you yeah

Until I was so far away
I picked those oars
And I rowed madly

Stream to river
River to sea
Till you mother
Whisper to me

Pick up up those oars
and row madly up the stream
Put more juice in the engine
Let me see a little steam

Years and years of rowing
Up and down it seems
To port town to port town
They're trying to find the sea!

Come to me mother
And whisper in my ear
Tomorrow is another day
And soon another year

it’s hard to run fast
As time slips away
And I didn’t begin to love you like I should
Anyway
