No Charge - Shirley Caesar

My sister's little boy came into the kitchen

One evening while she was fixing supper

And he handed her a piece paper

He had been writing on

 

And after wiping her hands on an apron

 

She took it in her hands and she read it

 

And this is what it said

 

For mowing the yard, five dollars

 

And for making up my own bed this week, one dollar

 

For going to the store, fifty cents

 

And playing with little brother while you went shopping, twenty-five cents

 

Taking out the trash, one dollar

 

And for getting a good report card, five dollars

 

And for raking the yard, two dollars

 

Total owed, fourteen seventy-five

 

Well, she looked at him standing there and expecting

 

And a thousand memories flashed through her mind

 

So she picked up pen and she turned the paper over

And this is what she wrote

 

For the 9 months I carried you

Holding inside me, no charge

 

For the nights I sat up with you

Doctored you, prayed for you, no charge

 

For the time and the tears and the costs through the years

 

There is no charge

 

When you add it all up the real cost of my love

Is no charge

 

For the nights filled with gray

And the worries ahead, no charge

 

For the advice and the knowledge

 

And the costs of your college, no charge

 

For the toys, food and clothes

And for wiping your nose there's no charge son

 

When you add it all up the real cost of my love

Is no charge

 

paid in full

 

When you add it all up the real cost of my love is no charge
