Listen To Your Mama
If you’ve ever come to a library show and heard me play a song called 3 Little Fishies, you know that the moral of the story is “LISTEN TO YOUR MAMA!” And then kids stand up and point their finger at me and yell, “YOU listen to YOUR mama!” Please rest assured that I do listen to my mama. Absolutely.
Included is a picture of my favorite mom in the whole world. My mom, Marion, is pictured with my son, John, about twenty years ago. She now lives in Minnesota and I call her every week. And when mom talks, I listen. And speaking of 3 Little Fishies, my mom used to sing it to me when I was a kid. And when I started singing with children, it was one of the first songs I learned. I still think of her when I sing it. My mom is where my musical talent came from. My mother is the one who introduced me to the Beatles, the Byrds, the Band, and most of the music I still love today. She’s the #1 influence in my life. And my #1 fan. I love my mom with all my heart. I could go on and on. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms. I hope it’s a beautiful day for you and your families. The End.
