Selena sings "Mama" (A Mother's Day Special)

I'm so proud of my only princessette, Selena. She's just 9 years old, but she sings each song with feeling. She specially recorded this song - MAMA - for me, because it talks about a mother who's been away from her family to work for them. FYI, I left her when she was just 2-month old. But she's used to this setup and my mom has done a great job in raising her up. The only mismatching part of this song is - I'm not a maid in London! LOL.

Play the first song on this playlist to listen to her song. It's a playlist of some of my songs too. Find the lyrics of this song below the music player.

I want to do a montage video for this beautiful song. Hopefully it'd be just in time for this coming Mothers' Day. :-)




MAMA
(Popularized by Smokey Mountain | Revived by Charice Pempengco)

Mama she wrote me a letter
Saying she's gonna be fine
Please take good care of your sister
I'll be home in three years time


Mama it seems like forever
You've been gone since i was five
They say you were a good teacher
In the same school where i can't survive

Mama's a maid in london
I want to believe that she's fine
She could be lonely in london
I want to know why she had to go
I need her, i want to be near her
I've got to be with her
And see to it that we're together once more

My english teacher she told me
She wants to be where you are
Mama she's leaving her family
To earn all the money she wants

London, vancouver, or hong kong
Governess, housekeeper, or nurse
What is to happen to all of us children?
With mothers who travel so far

Mama's a maid in london
I want to believe that she's fine
She could be lonely in london
I want to know why she had to go
I need her, i want to be near her
I've got to be with her
And see to it that we're together once more

Once more...
