      About "I Wish I Had a Mommy Like You"

      Lyrics for Tammy Wynette - "I Wish I Had a Mommy Like You"

      There lives a little boy in the house next door to me
      And as usual his mommy was gone
      So he came over this morning and sat down next to me
      And asked why does mommy leave me alone.

      But he'll find out someday why his mommy stays away
      And why a woman needs arms to hold her tight
      And that she would stay at home and not leave him all alone
      If his daddy didn't stay away at night.

      [Chorus]
      He said I wish I had a mommy like you just like you
      To hold me in her arms the way you do
      When I lay me down to sleep I pray the Lord my soul to keep
      And I ask for a mommy like you.

      Though a tear fell from his eye he was trying not to cry
      I said don't worry everything will be all right
      So you just wait and see and I held him close to me
      Just like I held his daddy last night.

      [Chorus]

      And I ask for a mommy like you...
