Mother's Song Lyrics

by Gregory Porter

Listen, and gather round me children, children of a mother whose life lifted up love
Listen, and gather round me children, children of a mother whose life lifted up peace
A mother who taught all of her children to love and be loved by each other
Hold your sisters hand as she walks across life and look out for each other
Carry your brothers load, dont you ever, ever betray him
Go to the store, buy grandmamma a pound of love
Listen, gather round me children, children of a mother whose life lifted up joy
Listen, gather round me children, children of a mother whose life lifted up hope
A mother who taught all of her children to love and be loved by each other
Hold your baby sisters hand as she walks across life and look out for each other
Carry your brothers load, dont you ever, ever betray him
Go to the store, buy grandmamma a pound of love, I believe its on sale

Instrumental break

Listen, gather around me children, children of a mother whose life lifted up love
Listen, gather around me children, children of a mother whose life lifted up hope
A mother who taught all of her children to love and be loved by each other
Hold your baby sisters hand as she walks across life and look out for each other
Carry your brothers load, dont you ever, ever betray him
Go to the store, buy grandmamma a pound of love
Listen, gather round me children, children of a mother whose life lifted up joy
Listen, gather round me children, children of a mother whose life lifted up peace
A mother who taught all of her children to love and be loved by each other
Hold your sisters hand as she walks across life and look out for each other
Carry your brothers load, dont you ever, ever betray him
Go to the store, buy grandmamma a pound of love

Listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, oh oh oh oh ahhhh
Children of a mother whose life lifted up me
