Fiddlin' - There is Nothin' Like a Mom

Here is another song to honor mom for Mothers Day.

THERE IS NOTHIN' LIKE A MOM
to the tune of "There is Nothin' Like a Dame" from Roger and Hammerstein's South Pacific

CHILDREN
She can lend a helping hand,
She can kiss a scraped up knee,
Feeds us yogurt and bananas,
She can swing us on a tree,
She plays dominoes and Scrabble,
And sings lots of dandy songs --

DAD
What have we got?

ALL
We got our mom!

CHILDREN
We get home schooling from home,
We read scriptures, we do plays,
We get speeches from our mother,
And there's chores to do each day,
We get diapers filled wit' guckies,
We get dizzy from the smell --

DAD
But who do we love?

ALL
You know darn well!

DAD
We have  someone to put on a clean white shirt for.
What we have is what there ain't no substitute for.

ALL
There is nothin' like a mom --
Nothin' in the world!
Ther is nothin' hereupon
That is anythin' like a mom.

CHILDREN
If we're restless, If we're blue,
If we're lonely and, in brief,
We feel every kind of feelin'
But the feelin' of relief.
We can go and talk with mommy
All because we're understood.

ALL
What do we feel?

CHILD #1
We feel darn good.

DAD
Lots of things in life are beautiful, but, brother --
There is one particular thing that is nothin' whatsoever
In any way, shape, or form like any other.

ALL
There is nothin' like a mom --
Nothin' in the world!
There is nothin' hereupon
That is anythin' like a mom
Nothin' else is bulit the same!
Nothin' in the world --

CHILD #2
Piles of kids are hanging on,
On the comfy lap of a mom.

DAD
There is absolutely nothin' ever wrong with our mom!

CHILDREN
So suppose a mom ain't rich,
Or completely free from flaws,
Or as faithful as a bird dog,
Or as kind as Santa Claus --
It's a waste of time to worry
Over things she may be not:

DAD
Be thankful for --

ALL
The mom we've got!
There is nothin' like a mom --
Nothin' in the world.
There is nothin' hereupon
That is anythin' like a mom.
That reads books like a mom
And nothin' cooks like a mom.
There are no hugs like a mom's
And nothin' snugs like a mom,
Nothin' acts like a mom
Or attracts like a mom.
There ain't a thing that's wrong with any kid here
That can't be cured by puttin' him near
A cuddly, womanly, female, feminine mom!
