Songaweek is a free site. But for this one, I'm asking for a little something. Not for me, but for Scott and other children with cancer.
Scott's Dad is involved with an upcoming golf marathon for the Children's Dream Fund. He's trying to raise money for a
special little girl named Cheyenne. If you're a regular songaweek visitor, I'm begging you to give what you can. Sometimes
it's the little things that mean the most.

This song is from a son to a mother.

We welcome your comments.

Momma you can cry anytime 
I need your smile right now
I need your heart pressed up to mine
and your words to tell me how
to live with a meanness I can't see
and a feeling I can't shake
that the only thing worth waking for
is a bond you'll never break

I'll take the pain from your face
with a kiss upon your cheek
I'll sing to you when the lights are low
flex your muscles when you're weak
I'm superman I'm spiderman
all rolled up in a ball
my blood count can go straight to hell
I'll still catch you if you fall

Mamma I won't let you down
Mamma I won't let you down

No burden will I become
nor a statistic floating by
I've found my home across the sea
and never once asked why
there's surely some worse than me
what would my doubts convey
to those who wanted a bit more time
but weren't allowed to stay

Mamma I won't let you down
Mamma I won't let you down

So Momma rest your weary head
and dream like you used too
of the softness of a Scottish rain
that turned the sky deep blue
I'll be here when the morning comes
and we'll plan another day
I was born my mother's son
and don't know another way

Mamma I won't let you down
Mamma I won't let you down

Momma you can cry anytime
I need your smile right now
I need your heart pressed up to mine
and your words to tell me how
to live with a meanness I can't see
and a feeling I can't shake
that the only thing worth waking for
is a bond you'll never break

Mamma I won't let you down
Mamma I won't let you down
Mamma I won't let you down
Mamma I won't let you down
