The following are the opening lyrics from a beautiful gentle soulful song called 'Mother' by a Hamilton band called Black Jack, off their album Deal.
It was written by the lead singer, Gavin Dempsey, for his Mother...
M's for the Memories in a life full of love
Over and over she's there
T is for her Tears, and there were many
H is for the Home we all shared
E is for Every time she catched me from falling and
R is for the Reasons when I asked her why
Mother knows me
Mother showed me
Mmmm - Mother of mine
When I left my children and they got a wonderful, kind new Mother, I had to work out where I fit in.
The last line of the last verse says
"Lost and lonely, she takes my hand..."
It was me who was lost and lonely and taking either of my children's hands kept me going until I was able to work it out...
Pimp My Attitude
You need to know, right now, this is all about me. I'm not educated. I don't have any (non-driving related) qualifications therefore, I'm not about to tell you what you should do - I know my place.
And here you are.
At my place.
So - welcome.
If you're here for 10 seconds, I won't even know so I won't be offended that you left early.
If you're here for hours and keep coming back, I will consider you a friend because the only thing my diverse yet loyal friends have in common, and what I appreciate most about them, is that they just keep coming back..
