Mother's Day Songs and Tributes

Mother's Day songs and tributes have changed -- no doubt about it. You need look no further than the selections on this page to know that we have come a long way from the traditional Mother Song to YouTube salutes.
Baby Boomers may recall singing this tribute to mother when they were in grammar school.
The Mother Song
is for the many things she gave me

O is only that she’s growing old.
T is for her tender, sweet caresses.
H is for a heart as pure as gold.
E is for her eyes with love light shining,
R is for right, and right she’ll always be.

Put them all together, they spell
Mother... a
word that means the world to me.

Modern mothers might find that ditty a bit old-fashioned for their tastes. Fast-forward to the 21st Century and you have a biologist thanking his mother for her DNA.

Then you have the Shaytards -- a dad and three kids with a fourth on the way -- telling mom how much they love her while on a road trip.

Next we have a spoof on a mom who is enjoying the company of her children on Mother's Day weekend.  Enjoy.

If you want a more conventional way to remember Mom on Mother's Day, check out our Mommisms or Tributes to Mother.

If you are looking for something special to say about Dad, we have some great quotes about fathers.
