You’ve been so good to me over the years
And I couldn’t speak for all the laughter and the tears
And it’s true; i’ve done bad things to you
You’ve loved me unconditionally for all the things I do

And there’s no other like a mother’s love
Not a golden charm or a million bucks
It’s when they tuck you in at night
When you’re young and scared they’ll hold you tight
And when you dream that you’re the best
It’s a mother’s love that’ll take you there
That’ll take you there

Hey mum, i’m gonna make you so proud
And even when you’re old and not around
I’ll sing these words oh so loud

Hey dad, i’m sorry I made you so mad
And I know it took years to work things through
But I finally found that I can say I love you to

Remember that wakeup call
I’d been out all night in the freezing cold
I must’ve looked like death
You could smell the alcohol on my breath
Your face spoke of anxiety
More worry than I had ever feared
It only made us stronger

And it seems so hard with a family to feed
And a life of your own, you kept us on our feet
We never had much time to talk
Just to let you know you’re in my thoughts

And when you bought my first guitar
Dad, you said that i’d go far
I swear i’ll make you proud

Hey mum, i’m gonna make you so proud
And even when you’re old and not around
I’ll sing these words oh so loud

Hey dad, i’m sorry I made you so mad
And I know it took years to work things through
But I finally found that I can say I love you to

If I could be half the man that you have been
I know my kids would be in good hands
I’ll speak your words with pride
I’ll speak them till the day that I die

Mum, you’ve always been so good to me
You never questioned my ability
You always told me I can and I will
And i’ll live by that, yeah i’ll live by that

Hey mum, i’m gonna make you so proud
And even when you’re old and not around
I’ll sing these words oh so loud

Hey dad, i’m sorry I made you so mad
And I know it took years to work things through
But I finally found that I can say I love you to

Hey mum, i’m gonna make you so proud
And even when you’re old and not around
I’ll sing these words oh so loud

Hey dad, i’m sorry I made you so mad
And I know it took years to work things through
But I finally found that I can say I love you to
