"Rockabye"By Clean Bandit (Mother's day version by Jon Shepherd)

(4/4 time. 4 bar intro)

Call it love and devotion

Call it  Mum's adoration

A special bond of creation

Call it love and devotion

Call it  Mum's adoration

A special bond of life

She works all night, by the water

No one buys flowers, Long factory hours

It's for her daughter. 

She just wants a life, for her baby

All on her own, no one to care

She's got to save her.

She tells her, "Ooh Love, 

Nobody's gonna hurt you, love

I'm gonna give you all of my love

Nobody matters like you-oo-oo."

Your life,

Ain't gonna be nothing like my life,

You're gonna grow

And have a good life

I'm gonna do what I've got to do."

So rockabye baby, rockabye

I'm gonna rock you.

Rockabye baby, don't you cry

Somebody's got you. 

So rockabye baby, rockabye

I'm gonna rock you.

Rockabye baby, don't you cry

I'm gonna rock you.

To all the mothers, strugglin' out there

Facing the hard life without no fear

Just so the kids know, you really care

Any obstacle come,you're well prepared

'Cause  you have to set things

Year after year

You give the youth

Love beyond compare

Find their school fee and their bus fare

Just so they know, that you really care

Now she got a six year old 

Trying to keep him warm

Trying to keep out the cold

When he looks in his eyes

He just knows he's safe

She says, "Ooh Love, 

Nobody's gonna hurt you, love

I'm gonna give you all of my love

Nobody matters like you-oo-oo."

Your life,

Ain't gonna be nothing like my life,

You're gonna grow

Asnd have a good life

I'm gonna do what I've got to do."

So rockabye baby, rockabye

I'm gonna rock you.

Rockabye baby, don't you cry

Somebody's got you. 

So rockabye baby, rockabye

I'm gonna rock you.

Rockabye baby, don't you cry

I'm gonna rock you.

To all the mothers, strugglin' out there

Facing the hard life without no fear

Just so the kids know, you really care

Any obstacle come,you're well prepared

'Cause  you have to set things

Year after year

You give the youth

Love beyond compare

Find their school fee and their bus fare

Just so they know, that you really care

So rockabye baby, rockabye

I'm gonna rock you.

Rockabye baby, don't you cry

Somebody's got you. 

So rockabye baby, rockabye

I'm gonna rock you.

Rockabye baby, don't you cry

I'm gonna rock you.
