Mother And Child Reunion Lyrics

by Paul Simon

No I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away

Oh, little darling of mine
I can't for the life of me
Remember a sadder day
I know they say, "Let it be"
But it just don't work out that way
And the course of a lifetime runs
Over and over again

No I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away

Oh, little darling of mine
I just can't believe it's so
And though it seems strange to say
I never been laid so low
In such a mysterious way
And the course of a lifetime runs
Over and over again

But I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
When the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away

Oh, oh the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away
Oh, the mother and child reunion
Is only a moment away

Oh the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away
Oh, the mother and child reunion
Is only a moment away

Oh the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away
