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
