Cheap Trick – Shelter lyrics

If I had a child
I would shelter it from harm
If I had a child
I would hold it in my arms
If I had a child
I would love it as my own
If I had a home

If I had a mom
I would shelter her from harm
If I had my mother
She would never lose her grace
If I had a mother
She would shelter me from harm
Oh, if I had a mom

If I had a love
I would shelter it from a broken heart
If I had a heart
I'd surrender it to my love

If I had my father
He would smile
If I had my dad
He'd be so kind
If I had a dad
He would tell me I was good
Oh, if I- if I
If I had a dad
Had my dad
