    "No Charge" Lyrics

    Tammy Wynette

    Now our little boy came up to his mom
    In the kitchen this evenin' while she was fixin' supper
    And he handed her a piece of paper he'd been writin' on
    And after wipin' her hands on her apron
    She read it, and this is what it said.

    For mowin' the lawn, five dollars
    For makin' my own bed this week, one dollar
    And for goin' to the store, fifty cents
    An' playin' with little brother while you went shoppin', 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 seventy-five.

    Well, as mom looked at him standin' there expectantly
    And I could see the 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, son
    And when you add it all up
    The full cost of my love is, no charge.

    Well, when he finished readin'
    He had great big old tears in his eyes
    And he looked up at her standing there and said
    Mama, 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...
