Cover my eyes

Cover my eyes 
Cover my ears 
tell me this is a lie 
it a lot on my shoulder 
as I walk close by her side 
her hair turn gray 
but she still fun in lots of ways, 

Cover my eyes 
Cover my ears 
tell me this is a lie 
her walk a little off 
but her skin still feel so soft 
and she still got that 
sparkle in her eyes, 

Cover my eyes 
Cover my ears 
tell me this is a lie 
as I lay down and sleep 
I pray my mama 
safe God will keep 
as the years seem to go flying by, 

Cover my eyes 
Cover my ears 
tell me this is a lie 
that as I am growing older 
I seem to be getting bolder 
our mothers need us now 
more than ever 
so from her I don't want to hear 
I am getting older my dear, 

Cover my eyes 
Cover my eyes 
tell me this is a lie
