    Has anyone ever heard this song? Its by a guy named Jason Matthews from North Carolina and its called Thats what Mama's Do. I just love this song. He is a songwriter in addition to a singer and we went and heard him play last summer.

    She’ll change a dirty diaper,
    wipe a runny nose
    Get a two day purple Kool-Aid
    stain right out of your clothes
    And she'll put her last spare dollar under your pillow,
    when you lose a tooth
    She'll bust down your door,
    and drag you out of bed
    Make you sit right next to her in church,
    wearing your Sunday best
    And when she bows her head to pray,
    you can bet she's saying one for you
    That's what mamas do
    They raise you,
    ground you Build their whole world around you
    With no care for the hell they'll go through
    That's what mamas do
    She'll keep up with all your girlfriends,
    scare off the ones she hates
    She'll get a new grey hair and a wrinkle to spare
    every time you come home late
    And when you leave to chase that dream,
    she's gonna cry when she walks by your empty room
    She'll call and sing you happy birthday,
    when everybody else forgets On your wedding day,
    she'll joke and say,
    where are my grandkids?” Oh,
    and when she finally gets 'em
    she'll spoil 'em rotten the way her mama did with you
    That's what mamas do
    They raise you,
    ground you
    Build their whole world around you
    And they'll carry the weight of your world too
    That's what mamas do
    But she'll get old and fragile,
    and the end will come too soon
    And she'll let go and you'll hold on,
    the way all children do And you'll miss her,
    mourn her Leave pretty flowers for her
    And you'll cry like the baby she knew
    And she'll hear you,
    guide you And pray the light finds you
    She'll never stop watching over you
    Oh, until you're up there, too
