Paul Simon Mother And Child Reunion Lyrics

Last updated: 07/28/2011 11:00:00 AM

No I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away, oh, little darling of mine

I can't for the life of me
Remember a sadder day
I know they say let it be
But it just don't work out that way
And the course of a lifetime runs
Over and over again

No I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away, oh, little darling of mine

I just can't believe It's so
Though it seems strange to say
I never been laid so low
In such a mysterious way
And the course of a lifetime runs
Over and over again

But I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
When the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away

Oh the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away
Oh the mother and child reunion
Is only a moment away

I always thought this song was about a father who had passed away, and how it brought about the reunion of the mother and child that had been estranged from each other for so long...then I realized it was partly about a dog that had died, and also about a chinese food dish Simon enountered that featured both eggs and chicken. Ha!
