Special Awards (Eric Waterman) tabs

Click Here for tabs.

She's a lady, a real special lady,
Yes, Mother, you're the greatest of all.

Just about every time you read
The morning news or turn on the TV,
You'll read about or you'll see
Some very special people,
Winning awards for their achievements,
Dedication and talent.

I often wonder why she wasn't awarded,
I mean that very special lady;
No, she wasn't even nominated,
I'm sure she has all the qualifications.

She's some nurse,
I've known her to stay up all night,
Trying to cure the common cold;
And I believe she did,
She cured all our scratches, bruises,
Even our disappointments,
With a gentle hug and a tender kiss.

She's a fine teacher.
She taught us the Lord's Prayer,
Right from wrong,
Helped us with our school work,
And took us to church on Sundays.

Yes, she's a good sport.
She showed us the principle rules of the game,
To be a good winner and a good loser.

An entertainer?
Why, she could tell a bedtime story so real to life,
You would fall to sleep and wake up in Disney World;
And when she sang Amazing Grace,
It came right from the heart.

Costume designer?
No, she didn't design any fancy clothes,
Except that warm quilt on the bed,
The one with all the colored patches;
I'll never forget that old pair of wool socks,
The pair with the blue, green, and red stripes,
The warmest pair of socks that I ever wore;
Not only did she design them, she manufactured them.

Performer? Yes, what an excellent performance,
If someone were to offer her an award,
She would probably say, "No, thank you,
It was all my pleasure."

Of course, we don't have an award of such value,
Well, with one exception,
And that is to say, we love you.

So, for all you special ladies,
Wherever you may be,
Please accept this special award;
She's a lady, a real special lady,
Yes, Mother, you're the greatest of all.

WE LOVE YOU.
