Oh, there'll never be a lady like Mom,
She's the one who taught us right from wrong;
She raised a real big family, her and Dad in harmony,
There'll never be a lady like Mom.

When Christmas time rolled around,
She made sure that we all found,
Something underneath the Christmas tree;
Christmas stockings filled with treats,
Lots of fruit and something sweet,
What a life it was just being young and free.

She worked real hard all her life,
And she couldn't have been a better wife,
To Dad who is the luckiest man alive;
Ran a little grocery shop,
Day and night she never stopped,
Back then it was a challenge to survive.

Oh, there'll never be a lady like Mom,
She's the one who taught us right from wrong;
She raised a real big family, her and Dad in harmony,
There'll never be a lady like Mom.

She was always pleasant through it all,
She dressed us warm by early fall,
She did so while she sacrificed herself;
She made sure we were never cold,
And she treated Dad like he was gold,
We had all that we needed without wealth.

Oh, there'll never be a lady like Mom,
She's the one who taught us right from wrong;
She raised a real big family, her and Dad in harmony,
There'll never be a lady like Mom.

Oh, there'll never be a lady like Mom,
She's the one who taught us right from wrong;
She raised a real big family, her and Dad in harmony,
There'll never be a lady like Mom.

No, there'll never be a lady like Mom.
