I'd walk for miles, cry or smile for mama and daddy
I want them, I want them to know
Just how I feel, my love is real for my mama and daddy
I want them to know I love them so.

In my heart joy tears start 'cause I'm happy
And I pray every day for mom and pappy and each night
I'd walk for miles, cry or smile for my mama and daddy
I want them to know I love them so.

--- Instrumental ---

I'd fight in wars, do all the chores for my mama and daddy
I want them to live on till they're called
I'd work and slave and never rave to my mama and daddy
Because I know I owe them my all.

In my heart joy tears start 'cause I'm happy
And I pray every day for mom and pappy and each night
I'd walk for miles, cry or smile for my mama and daddy
I want them to know I love them so...
