Mother’s Day

In 1915 Howard Johnson wrote the lyrics for the song M-O-T-H-E-R, Theodore Morse the music. Heard often in movies of the 30′s and 40′s, Garrison Keillor sings the tune occasionally on his show and will be sung by Tom Callinan at The Silo’s Mother’s Day Tea.
Mother
M Is for the Many things she gave me,
O Means only that she’s growing Old.
T Is for the Tears she shed to save me,
H Is for her Heart of purest gold.
E Is for her Eyes with love light shining,
R Means Right and Right she’ll always be.
Put them all together, They spell MOTHER.
A word that means the world to me.
