​She nags you constantly
Wash your face
Brush your teeth
Eat your veggies

She is there when you are scared
When you are sad
Her gentle caring words
Ease your cares away

I can't find my shirt
It's in the wash
Hurry breakfast is ready
She steers the ship each morning

She embarrasses you
Inspires you
Nurses you
Teaches you right from wrong

She has wise advice
She worries about you
She kisses you goodbye
And welcomes you home again

If you are young or old
Good or bad
In you she has faith
That's good old mum​
