Sons are going on the big stage and mother can't breathe...

My son began to write rock songs
He plays the guitar and sings
He formed a band and brother joined
No lightweight garage band on flings
They put together a cd
And one year later, no lie
They open for a BIG BIG band
And mother can hardly breathe
But will try...

To remember the butterflies
When they first rode their bikes
Or hit a ball off the tee
And went to prom night
Oh no here it comes,
I still find it hard to breathe

I have to breathe...I know I do
But this sends
Chills up my spine
Motherhood comes with it thrills
Beyond belief! When boys dream dreams
That send them flying...

-anyone have a paper bag? Breathe in, breathe out....

I know your proud of your son's,
but they would be prouder if you
would relax, take a deep breath,
and breathe. You da-Woman!
