Name of Song: The Other Side of a Mother

You can train a mother to defend herself,
You can train a mother to fix machines,
You can train a mother to do anything at all,
It’s just traditions that try to make an unease.

There are plenty of mothers who stay in shape,
There are plenty of mothers who know how to work,
Just because a mother knows how to care for and love,
Is no reason to say that is all.

Chorus
Mothers can do almost anything,
If you allow them to figure it all out,
The only real difference between a father and them,
Is that they’ve been chosen to carry the child.

You can’t minimize a mother because a man’s stronger,
That’s a viewpoint that has little finesse,
The real strength of a person is in holding their own,
As a spirit, and as someone who cares.

The real power of a mother is in her kindness,
They seem to know how to see another’s point of view,
They innately have an urge to turn anger into love,
That’s the softness of the mother we all knew.

Chorus
Mothers can do almost anything,
If you allow them to figure it all out,
The only real difference between a father and them,
Is that they’ve been chosen to carry the child.

A mother has a vital job to do,
Never minimize it, or make it something it’s not,
It seems as vital as a father’s care for providing,
And without a mother we’d all be doing something else.

There is a duty to protect the mother of our future children,
That’s a job that was given man a long time ago,
Let’s make a vow to reinvent this noble purpose,
You’ll be amazed at how our world will change its course.

Chorus
Mothers can do almost anything,
If you allow them to figure it all out,
The only real difference between a father and them,
Is that they’ve been chosen to carry the child.
