Mom's Chicken Soup

Mom’s Chicken Soup

My head is aching
My throat is sore
My feet are dragging
Across the floor
Yesterday morning
I was feeling fine
Today I wretch
Whenever I dine

Don’t’ try to tempt me
With a burger and such
Just want to be soothed
With a mother’s touch
When I lived at home
(Before I flew the coop)
Mom would cure me
With her chicken soup

I could smell the aroma
All through the house
It felt like a waltz
By Johann Strauss
It reached my senses
Floating on air
When I heard her
Footsteps on the stair

Why oh why
Did I ever roam
I need mom’s Chicken Soup
So I’m going back home
Put on the kettle Mom
I’m on my way
Miss your soup loving
I’m coming home to st

Get Well Soon PD!
