For Mama (La Mama) Lyrics

For Mama (La Mama) - Connie Francis (康妮 法蓝西斯)

Ave Maria

 

She said: "My daughter I beg of you

I have a with that must come true

The last thing you can do for Mama

Please promise me that you will stay

And take my place while I'm away

And give the children love each day"

I had to cry what could I say

 

How hard I tried to find the words

I prayed she wouldn't see my cry

So much to say that should be heard

But only time to say goodbye to Mama

 

They say in time that you'll forget

Yet still today my eyes are wet

I tell myself to smile for Mama

 

Now soon there'll be another spring

And I will start remembering

The way she loved to hear me sing

Her favorite song "Ave Maria"

 

Ave Maria

 

The children have all grown up now

I kept my promise to Mama

 

I cannot guide them anymore

 

I've done my best all for Mama

 

Ave Maria

 

But still it seems so very small

 

For all she did for me
