New Mommy


Alice C. Bateman

Where can we find a new Mommy 
Now that you have gone away 
Where could we find a new Mommy 
One who would just love to play 

Should we check the Library 
The schools and the park 
Should we look by the pond at the zoo 

I don't know if there even 
Would be any chance 
Of finding a Mommy like you 

We sure miss you, Mommy 
We wish you weren't gone 
I guess someone needed you more 

But if that is true 
And we can't have you 
Could they send a new Mom to our door? 

We need a new Mommy 
For hugging and kissing 
For a word or a look or a touch 

We need a new Mommy 
For finding our feelings 
Someone we could love very much 

We'd have to share Daddy 
With our brand new Mommy 
But maybe that won't be so bad 

We'd have to share Daddy 
With any new Mommy 
But maybe then we won't be sad
