Song about a Mother-Daughter Reunion in Australia

G’day to anyone involved in this adventure.  There is about to be a reunion of one of the Mums who played a role in my book Reunion.

You could help by just singing along to the old tune of Gundagai, written a hundred years ago in 1922. The composer was Jack O’Hagan. Here is a rendition of it with the old words:

SONG FOR MUM

(Note for singers: Underlined word means emphasis on this syllable)

  1. The memory’s always there, of those dear days.

How I loved to watch my child and see her ways.

You know I’m always yearnin’, just to be returnin’

And to have a real re-union with my girl….

Let’s get back, on the track, we can do without the flack,

And be united once again.

Oh, when I see her growin’, the tears will be a-flowin’

Beneath a sunny sky.

She has gone now to school, and acquired some pals.

I don’t know what she… even remembers of me,

But we’ll soon revive the past, And I know it’s going to last,

When I cuddle my baby again.

  1. When we meet, the years of hurt will disappear

Unfairness, begone! It’s time to indulge in cheer

The dreams will be abounding, and all the love resounding

It will be heaven for Mom, and joy for the child.

We’ll be back, on the track. Pay no attention to the flack!

We’ll be united once again.

Oh, when I see her growin’, the tears will be a-flowin’

Beneath a sunny sky.

She has gone now to school, and acquired some pals.

I don’t know what she even remembers of me,

But we’ll soon revive the past, And I know it’s going to last,

When I see my sweet baby again.

When I cuddle my baby again.
