Mothers Pride Lyrics

by George Michael

Oh she knows, she takes his hand
And prays the child will understand
At the door they watch the men go by
In the clothes that daddy wore, mother's pride

Baby boy, his fathers eyes
Hes a soldier waiting for war time will come
Hell hold a gun, his fathers son

And as he grows, he hears the band
Takes the step from boy to man
At the shore she waves her son goodbye
Like the man she did before, mothers pride

Just a boy his countrys eyes
Hes a soldier waving at the shore
And in her heart the time has come to lose a son

And all the husbands, all the sons, all the lovers gone
They make no difference, no difference in the end
Still hear the woman say, "Your daddy died a hero"
In the name of God and name mothers pride

Crazy boy, his lifeless eyes
Hes a soldier now forevermore
Hell hold a gun til kingdom come
