Song Lyrics

Words & music by Paul Simon

No I would not give you false hope

On this strange and mournful day

But the mother and child reu-nion

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 reu-nion

Is only a motion away, oh, little darling of mine.

I just can`t believe it`s so,

and 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 reu-nion

Is only a motion away,

Oh, oh the mother and child reunion

Is only a motion away

Oh the mother and child reu-nion

Is only a moment away
