Mother and Child Reunion

ŠPaul Simon, released on Paul Simon (album) 1972

.

No I would not give you false hope

On this strange and mournful day

But the mother and child reunion

Is only a motion away, oh, little darling of mine.

I can't for the life of me

Remember a sadder day

I know they say let it be

But it just don't work out that way

And the course of a lifetime runs

Over and over again

.

No I would not give you false hope

On this strange and mournful day

But the mother and child reunion

Is only a motion away, oh, little darling of mine.

.

I just can't believe it's so,

and though it seems strange to say

I never been laid so low

In such a mysterious way

And the course of a lifetime runs

Over and over again

.

But I would not give you false hope

On this strange and mournful day

When the mother and child reunion

Is only a motion away,

Oh, oh the mother and child reunion

Is only a motion away

Oh the mother and child reunion

Is only a moment away
