I’ll Always Be Your Mother Lyrics

This is a special day
When two are joined as one
I love my new daughter
I’ll always love you son
Care for each other
Be faithful till the end
Follow what’s in your heart
May you always stay best friends

It’s the start of your new life
As husband & wife
Hope the good days outshine the bad
May laughter brighten the sad
Know I’m here for you
To help or just talk to
Believe in each other
I’ll always be your mother

The day will be here soon
When you’ll have Kids to love
God will watch over you
From heaven up above
Pray for patience & wisdom
To give your kids your best
You’ll teach them right from wrong
They’ll bring you happiness

Chorus Repeat

I’ll always be your mother,
it completes my life
My tears are filled with love,
for you & your new wife
You are a caring son,
I’ll forever be proud of
Cherish your new bride,
We can always share your love

It’s the start of your new life
Believe in each other
I’ll always be your mother

Mother son wedding song – I’ll Always Be Your Mother

Copyright © 2006 by

Ill Always Be Your Mother is a new mother and son wedding song that I wrote for my sons wedding in 2006.

When my son told me he was getting married, I knew I wanted to write a song for him and his new bride. My intention was to give him something special and personal. As I started to write the song, it became more obvious to me that it would be a wonderful song to be played at the wedding that he and I could dance to.

The focus of this mother and son song was not so much about him as a boy growing up. It was about his special wedding day and the start of his new life with his new bride. I wanted to welcome his new bride into our family as my new daughter and wanted her to know that we could always share his love. I wanted to let him know that I would always be there for him. I wanted my son to see his new wife as his best friend and that its important to always be faithful to each other.

I wrote the lyrics for this mother and son wedding song and Jim McShane wrote the music. We recorded the song in a traditional version and played it at the wedding. It was beautiful to everyone, young and old, male and female. I was encouraged by so many people to publish the CD and make it available to others. So, with this encouragement, Jim and I also recorded a country version and released our single, recorded in both the traditional and country versions in May of 2007.

The CD is available at http://www.shopmysongs.com

You can view the lyrics and listen to a short clip of both versions of the song.

My new father daughter wedding song titled “I’ll Always Be Your Daughter” was released in May 2008. My new bride and groom first dance song titled “Two Little Words” was relased in June 2009.

I am not only a proud mother of two boys and a daughter-in-law, I am now a proud grandmother of beautiful little girl.

Best wishes to all mothers & sons, fathers & daughters, and all parents on their special wedding day.

    My son is almost 27 and has always said that I will forever be number one in his life. So, this saying doesn’t apply to my son … one who was raised by a very loving mom who respected him always. He has a baby girl now and I have no problem taking second place to that precious angel. :-) My daughter is, indeed my daughter all my life, but my son is definitely my son all my life, too.

    EBHERNANDEZ7- In response to your question. Coming from a woman/mother it would be a nice suggestion if you have your future wife’s mom dance with you while she is dancing with her dad. :)

    A few ways I have heard is to dance with your fiance’s mom, a favorite aunt, sister or any one that is special to you. You don’t have to dance with anyone at all. You can also dance with one of these women in memory of your mother.


    Who do you dance …
    Who do you dance with when you don’t have a mother? I’m getting married next year…My mother passed away when I was 13, my father passed away when I was 25. I’m 34 now. My fiance has both her parents. My grandparents on both sides have passed away too. Can’t dance with grandma…Who do I dance with?

    I recently got married and my mom and I danced to this song. I could not stop crying the whole time. Neither could my mom. My wife was crying as well. She did the exact same thing that this guy’s wife did, she winked at me.

    After the song was over, I was still crying. My wife came up to me and asked if I was ok, I said I was. Then I had to go to the bathroom to splash water on my face.

    I came back out and my mom and my wife were sitting down and talking about me, (typical women) hah hah.
