Jermaine Jackson – Oh Mother lyrics

Have I told you
You are my river
That never stops for a rest

Have I thanked you for letting me
Come out of you
And giving me all your best

Have I thanked you
For having our family,
Without them I wouldn't be here

Have I told you no matter
How far I may go
All of you always are near

Ooh, Mother
You've given everything to me
Ooh, Mother
You never asked for anything
Ooh, Mother
I'm sorry for all those times I've hurt you so
When all along it was sreally me
scared of letting go
So afraid to grow

Have I told you
I love you forever

Have I told you
I love you always

Have I told you
The difference you make in my life
You make in your own special way
