It's a stranger world we live in
than it's ever been before,
Old enemies are best of friends
while others go to war;
Hunger grips the nations
without hope or pride or dreams,
While grain sits in the silos
that are bursting at the seams.

That kids feel more confused now
shouldn't come as a surprise,
Each day we see more families
split up before our eyes;
The thief is treated better than
the victim that he robs,
Computers do the work of ten
while people lose their jobs.

Sometimes I sit and wonder why
everything has changed,
I guess they call it progress,
nothing stays the same;
But I'd like to start all over
from the day that I was born,
Go back to just a kid
all cuddled up in Momma's arms.

'Cause the world seemed a safer place
when Momma held me tight,
No strangers ever entered,
no creatures walked the night;
A castle filled with daydreams,
a cradle soft and warm,
Serenaded by her heartbeat,
cuddled up in Momma's arms.

Then I realized there's one who
helps me fall to sleep at night,
Whose arms still bring me comfort
each time they hold me tight;
She's a lady, she's a lover,
she's the one I'm so proud of,
She's the mother of the children
that we conceived in love.

I often sit and watch her
at the closing of the day,
I marvel how she takes the time
to join the kids in play;
From Teddy Bears to Tonkas,
Ninja Turtles to the farms,
Till they snuggle down to sleep
all cuddled in their Momma's arms.

'Cause the world seemed a safer place
when Momma held me tight,
No strangers ever entered,
no creatures walked the night;
A castle filled with daydreams,
a cradle soft and warm,
Serenaded by her heartbeat,
cuddled up in Momma's arms.
Serenaded by her heartbeat,
cuddled up in Momma's arms.
