You taught me everything
And everything you've given me
I always keep it inside
You're the driving force in my life, yeah

There isn't anything
Or anyone that I can be
And it just wouldn't feel right
If I didn't have you by my side

Cause you were there for me to love and care for me
When skies were grey

Mama, mama, you know I love you
Oh you know I love you, mama
Mama, you're the queen of my heart
Lovin' you is like food to my soul

Yes it is, yes it is
