Mommy! Mommy! Through the tears
I hurt my knee, make it feel better please!
Mommy! Mommy! With a smile
I drew you a picture, Mommy!
It's you, Mommy! Isn't it pretty?

Mom! Mom! Through the tears
They teased me, make it better please?
Mom! Mom! With a smile
I won the spelling bee, Mom!
I'm going to County, Mom! Isn't that cool?

Mom! Mom! Through the tears
He broke up with me, make it better please?
Mom! Mom! With a smile
My art teacher really liked my drawing, Mom!
It's going to Panoply, Mom! Isn't that cool?

Mommy? Mommy? Through the tears
I'm so lonely, make it better please?
Mommy? Mommy? Through the tears
I'm so scared, don't you see?
Mommy? Mommy? With a smile
My English teacher really liked my poem, Mom.
I'm entering into a contest, Mom. Isn't that cool?

Mommy? Mommy? With a disheartened cry
What happened to the mommy who healed my hurt knee?
Who smiled at my picture and said I was the best artist in the world?
Who could heal a heart pained by teasing laughter?
Who helped me study for my Spelling Bee?
Who could heal a heart broken by a teenage boy?
Who smiled at my art and said it was great?

Mommy? Mommy? Mom? Mom?
What happened to my mommy?
