Paul Simon - Loves Me Like a Rock

Is there a more cheerful song about moms? Grab a guitar and take your mom to church with Paul Simon's gospel-tinged classic.

Lyrics
She gets down on her knees and hugs me
She loves me like a rock
She rocks me like the rock of ages
And she loves me




Carrie Underwood - Mama's Song

Looking for the song most likely to make your mom cry?

Lyrics
Mama you taught me to do the right things
So now you have to let your baby fly
You've given me everything that I will need
To make it through this crazy thing called life




Backstreet Boys - The Perfect Fan

Say what you will about the Backstreet Boys, but this is a lovely piano ballad with gorgeous harmonies. Recruit a few siblings (and maybe a cousin choir!) for an after-brunch serenade.

Lyrics
'Cause mom you always were
The perfect fan



Lynyrd Skynyrd - Simple Man

"I think anybody out there needs to respect their mother, and the words of their mother." - Johnny Van Zant on "Simple Man"

Moms all over the world agree.

Lyrics
Mama told me when I was young
Come sit beside me, my only son
And listen closely to what I say
And if you do this
It will help you some sunny day




The Spice Girls - Mama


  • Play this song for your mom if: Your mom would find tongue-in-cheek humor in lyrics like: "Mama I love youMama my friendYou're my friend.
  • "You were a rebellious child: "I didn't mean to be so bad. I never thought you would become the friend I never had."


We're not passing judgment either way.
