Tammy Wynette No Charge Lyrics

My little girl came up to me
In the kitchen this evenin' while I was fixin' supper
And she handed her a piece of paper she'd been writin' on
And after wipin' my hands on my apron
I read it, and this is what it said.

For mowin' the yard, five dollars
For makin' my own bed this week, one dollar
Goin' to the store, fifty cents
An' playin' with little sister while you went to the store, twenty-five cents.

Takin' out the trash, one dollar
Gettin' a good report card, five dollars
And for rakin' the yard, two dollars
Total owed, fourteen dollars and seventy-five cents.

Well, I looked at her standin' there expectantly
And a thousand mem'ries flashing through her mind
And so she picked up the pen, and turnin' the paper over
This is what she wrote.

For the nine months I carried you growin' inside me, no charge
For the nights I've sat up with you
Doctored you, and prayed for you, no charge
For the time and the tears
That you've cost through the years, there's no charge
And when you add it all up
The full cost of my love is no charge.

For the nights filled with dread
And all the worries ahead, no charge
For advice and the knowledge
And the cost of your college, no charge
For the toys, food and clothes and even for wipin' your nose
There's no charge
And when you add it all up
The full cost of my love is, no charge.

Well, when she finished readin'
She had great big old tears in her eyes
And she looked up at me and said
Mommy, I sure do love you
Then he took the pen,
And in great big letters
He wrote PAID IN FULL.

Lord knows when you add it all up
The cost of real love is, no charge...
