Mother and Child Reunion
by Paul Simon

No, I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away

Oh, little darling of mine
I can't for the life of me
Remember a sadder day
I know they say let it be
But it just don't work out that way
And the course of a lifetime runs
Over and over again

No, I would not give you false hope (no)
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away

Oh, little darling of mine
I just can't believe it's so
Though it seems strange to say
I never been laid so low
In such a mysterious way
And the course of a lifetime runs
Over and over again

But I would not give you false hope (no)
On this strange and mournful day
When the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away

Oh, oh, the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away
Oh, the mother and child reunion
Is only a moment away (oh oh)

Oh, the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away
Oh (oh), the mother and child reunion
Is only a moment away

Oh, oh, the mother and child reunion
Oh, is only a motion away
Oh, the mother and child reunion
Is only a moment away (way, way, way)

Mom and Dad raised me on Paul Simon, Cat Stevens, Creedence Clearwater, Jim Croce, Billy Joel, Huey Lewis & The News, and quite a few other singers.

John-boy

That's pretty funny, probably a little awkward for you though

Mark Schultz

Sounds as if your parents raised you right.

@John-boy I took my mom to see Neil Diamond. Some lady loaned her a pair of binoculars. I thought we were going to have to have them surgically removed from her eyes. She kept saying, "Oh my god, those pants.'. The pants were tight, black leather, and I'm pretty sure there was nothing underneath them, lol. She talked about it for months. She was only 4 yrs older than he was.

I miss my mother so much.

Like, my mom thought about this song when she kissed me goodbye to send me off to college. My family lives in California, and I moved to Chicago for school. When I was boarding the train to take my long journey East, this song was playing in her mind.
