My Yiddishe Momme Lyrics

My Yiddishe Momme - Anne Shelton

Of things I should be thankful

For I've had a goodly share

And as I sit here in the comfort of my cosy chair

 

My fancy takes me to a humble eastside tenement

 

Three flights up in the rear to

Where my childhood days were spent

 

It wasn't much like Paradise but 'mid the dirt and all

There sat the sweetest angel one that I fondly call

 

My yiddishe momme I need her more then ever now

 

My yiddishe momme I'd like to kiss that wrinkled brow

I long to hold her hands once more as in days gone by

And ask her to forgive me for things

I did that made her cry

 

How few were her pleasures

 

She never cared for fashion's styles

 

Her jewels and treasures

 

She found them in her baby's smiles

 

Oh I know that I owe what I am today

To that dear little lady so old and gray

To that wonderful yiddishe momme of mine

 

How few were her pleasures

 

She never cared for fashion's styles

Her jewels and treasures

She found them in her baby's smiles

 

Oh I know that I owe what I am today

 

To that dear little lady so old and gray

 

 

To that wonderful yiddishe momme of mine
