IRVING BERLIN lyrics - To My Mammy

IRVING BERLIN
"To My Mammy"

[Verse:]
Mammy mine, there's a light divine
In your eyes that shines for me
And that light tells me I'm all right
Though the world may not agree
Whatever they say or do
I know how I stand with you

[1st refrain:]
Who cares what the world may say?
No matter what comes my way
I'm everything
To my mammy

And who cares if I lose the race?
No matter who takes my place
I'm still the king
To my mammy

How much does she love me? I'll tell you no lie
How deep is the ocean? How high is the sky?

Who cares if my friends have gone?
You'll find me still holding on
'Cause I can cling
To my mammy

[2nd refrain:]
Who cares if the people shout
I'm nothing to rave about?
I'm everything
To my mammy

And who cares if the future shows
I may be in beggar's clothes?
I'm still the king
To my mammy

The crowd disapproving won't hurt me because
My mammy still loves me and that's my applause

Who cares if they say I'm through?
Someday when my song won't do
I still can sing
To my mammy
