When I'm a mom
I'll love my kids
and play with them all day

I'll give fun baths
and brush their hair
and teach them how to pray

I'll read cool books
cook lots of food
and take them to the park

We'll sing and slide
dig in the sand
then head home when its dark

I'll teach my children
left from right
and sing sweet lullabies

I'll tuck them in
and pat their backs
and hold them if they cry

When I'm a mom
I guess I'll have so many
things to do

but most of all...
when I'm a mom
I hope I'll be like you
