GEORGE MICHAEL - Mother's Pride

rate me

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 father's eyes

He's a soldier waiting for war

Time will come

He'll hold a gun

His father's son

And as he grows

He hears the band

Takes the step from boy to man

And at the shore she waves her son goodbye

Like the man she did before

Mother's pride

Just a boy

His country's eyes

He's 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 women say your daddy died a hero

In the name of God and man

Mother's pride

Crazy boy

His lifeless eyes

He's a soldier now forever more

He'll hold a gun till kingdom come
