Mama, you gave life to me
Turned a baby, into a lady
And mama, all you had to offer
was a promise of a lifetime of love
Now I know, there is no other
Love like a mother's
Love for her child
and I know
a love so complete
something

Goodbye's the saddest word I'll ever hear
Goodbye's the last time I will hold you near
Someday you'll say that word and I will cry
It'll break my hear to hear you say goodbye

Mama, you gave love to me
Turned a young one
Into a woman
and mama, all I ever needed
was a guarantee of you loving me

Cuz I know
there is no other
love like a mother's
love for her child
and it hurts so
that something so strong

must say goodbye

Goodbye's the saddest word I'll ever hear
Goodbye's the last time I will hold you near
Someday you'll say that word and I will cry
It'll break my heart to hear you say goodbye

Well the love you give

You'll always be there everytime I call
You ought to be the greatest love of all
You take my weakness and you make me strong
And I will always love 'till forever comes
