Tammy Wynette – I Wish I Had A Mommy Like You lyrics

There lives a little boy in the house next door to me
And as usual his mommy was gone
So he came over this morning and sat down next to me
And asked why does mommy leave me alone
But he'll find out someday why his mommy stays away
And why a woman needs arms to hold her tight
And that she would stay at home and not leave him all alone
If his daddy didn't stay away at night
He said I wish I had a mommy like you just like you
To hold me in her arms the way you do
When I lay me down to sleep I pray the Lord my soul to keep
And I ask for a mommy like you

Though a tear fell from his eye he was trying not to cry
I said don't worry everything will be all right
So you just wait and see and I held him close to me
Just like I held his daddy last night
He said I wish...
And I ask for a mommy like you
