Working Class Mums

Working class mums are the salt of the earth
greater than corals or gold is their worth.
She can cuddle a baby with the tenderest kiss
or punch out a man with one swing of her fist.
A working class hero is something to be
but working class mums are heroes to me.

From Jarrow to Orgreave she stood by her man
held the family together and never gave in.
Staring adversity right in the eye
and laughed at the devil as his train rolled by.
A working class hero is something to be
but working class mums are heroes to me.

She'll give and she'll give till giving is through
then say "I dont want to be a burden to you".
Ah, dont you know this isn't the end
She lives in the heart of her family and friends.
A working class hero is something to be
but working class mums are heroes to me.

A working class hero is something to be
but working class mums are heroes to me.

Not my best work tbh. Anybody reading this far will already have noticed I 'borrowed' the melody and a chorus line from John Lennon. And a couple of other places. For this reason I'm not putting copyright on it.
Country is a state of mind, not a state of America.
