"What Love Can Do (44)" - Song lyrics (translator):

Oh Mommie, Mommie - Mom~ie wo~o~o~o
Mommie, Mommie - Mom~ie wo~o~o
Mommie, Mommie - Mom~ie wo~o~o.
Mommie
why didn’t You tell Me
what ‘LOVE’
can do?
I find Myself
doing things
I never did - before
partaking - forgiving - overlooking
having more patience
and being more understanding
even more ... than ever - before
find Myself
saying things
I - never thought
I - would say
My Honey Bud and Sweetie Pie
Cup Cakes
My Pretty Young Thing
Dearest Dear
all things
I - never thought
I - would say.

Oh Mommie, Mommie
Mommie why didn’t You tell
why didn’t You tell ..?

Mommie
why didn’t You tell Me
what ‘LOVE’
would do?
walk the Children
to school
and Their friends
to the playground and BACK - from sleepovers
I now plan trips and PACK - the lunches too
for visits to the amusement centers -- WOW ..!

Oh Mommie
the dishes
I do
wash and fold the clothes
I do
say yes and no
when I know
it’s no and yes
what ‘LOVE’ has done~e~e
oh Mommie, Mommie
Momm~ie - wo~o~o ..?

Oh Mommie, Mommie
Mommie why didn’t You tell
why ..?

Mommie
why didn’t You tell
what ‘LOVE’
could do?    oh sweet love
‘LOVE’ has been
here and there
been everywhere
with Me    oh sweet love
‘LOVE’ has been
more than an existence
‘IT’s’ been
a life-giver and protector
by Me
‘IT’s’ made Me
the envy
of many-a men
an’ when I was made
to fail - totally
fall down - on My Own
‘LOVE’ extended
a helping
caring hand
so I  APPEARED to be strong
even in the midst of My uncertainties
oh Mommie
“LOVE” has been
a blessing to Me ..!

‘IT’s’ taken a place
besides Me
and sometimes
depending on the mood
I meditate
‘LOVE’ took the lead
or stand behind
My doubtful decisions
if only to support
least I lose a skipped stride
‘LOVE’ is always there
being aware of the Fam’ly
Our togetherness builds
‘LOVE’ has been Me.

I must say
I am happy - too
when I should be - lonely
I go Home strong
knowing ‘LOVE’ a-waits Me
Mommie, Mommie
what ‘LOVE’ has DONE
to Me!

Oh Mommie, Mommie - Mom~ie wo~o~o~o
(Mommie, Mommie, Mom~ie wo~o~o.)2x

Giving-up
My space
slowing down
to take notice
of Life’s - simple things
selecting My Friends
with more caution
as I know
MINE - is not the only need
to be satisfied
now ... I let My Thoughts and Dreams
fly -- more freely
as I am so confident
there is ‘LOVE’ there
(to catch Me
if I - shall - fall.)2x

Oh Mommie, Mommie - Mom~ie wo~o~o~o
Mommie, Mommie - Mom~ie wo~o~o
Mommie, Mommie - Mom~ie wo~o~o.

Mommie
look what ‘LOVE’
has done
to Me
‘IT’s’ been strong
by Me
‘IT’s’ been there
for Me
‘IT’s’ been happy    so happy
with Me
o~o~oh so sad
‘IT’s’ been sad
with Me
‘IT’ cares
for Me
‘IT’s’ been honest
to Me
been very
very HONEST
with Me
‘LOVE’ has been
a mentor
for Me
‘LOVE’ has been ... ‘LOVE’~ly
‘IT’ has been ... ‘LOVE’~ly.

Oh Mommie, Mommie
Mommie why didn’t You tell
why ..?

Mommie woo
Mommie, Mommie wo~o~o
why didn’t You tell Me
what ‘LOVE’ can do
what ‘LOVE’ would do
what ‘LOVE’ could do
do - do - do
DO  FOR  ME ..?


Oh Mommie ... Momm~ie wo~o~o~o
Mommie, Mommie - Mom~ie wo~o~o
Mommie, Mommie - Mom~ie wo~o~o~o.


‘LOVE’ in ‘ITs’ infancy
working to attract company
for ‘ITs’ insecurities
IS - SO - VIGOROUS
IS - SO - VIGOROUS
in the beginning
‘LOVE’ - IS - SO - RESILIENT
in the beginning
‘LOVE’ - IS - SO - STRONG
Mommie woo
Mommie, Mommie wo~o~o
why ... didn’t You tell
why ... didn’t You tell
didn’t You tell - tell - tell
what ‘LOVE’
can do
would do
could do
do - do - do
DO  FOR  ME ..?
