BZN & Carola Smit - Mother
Tekst en muziek: Jan Tuijp, Dick Plat, Jan Keizer en Jack Veerman
(1997)






When I’m feeling down and find myself in trouble
Sick and tired of all the daily cares
When I’m close to tears with bringing up the children
I recall the days when I was young



And then I say this little prayer
Looking at your picture standing there



“Mother, this is me, I have to say I’m sorry
For all the moments that I broke your heart
Mother, now I see what you’ve been going through
And that I am so much, so much like you



Different points of view and other moral senses
Bandied words, you solved it all so well
Now I follow you, it’s not a bed of roses
Many times I felt, I was in hell



But then I said this little prayer
Looking at your picture standing there



Mother, this is me, I have to say: “I’m sorry”
For all the moments that I broke your heart
Mother, now I see what you’ve been going through
And that I am so much, so much like you



I wished that you were here again
To talk about it all
’Cause now I need your wisdom most of all



Mother, this is me, I have to say: “I’m sorry”
For all the moments that I broke your heart
Mother, now I see what you’ve been going through
And that I am so much, so much like you



Oh mother, don’t you know
I miss you so”
