    Lyrics

    Of things I should be thankful for I've had a goodly share
    And as I sit here in the comfort of my cosy chair
    My fancy takes me to a humble eastside tenement
    three flights up in the rear to where my childhood days were spent
    It wasn't much like Paradise but 'mid the dirt and all
    There sat the sweetest angel, one that I fondly call

    My yiddishe momme I need her more then ever now
    My yiddishe momme I'd like to kiss that wrinkled brow
    I long to hold her hands once more as in days gone by
    and ask her to forgive me for things I did that made her cry
    How few were her pleasures, she never cared for fashion's styles
    Her jewels and treasures she found them in her baby's smiles
    oh I know that I owe what I am today
    to that dear little lady so old and gray
    to that wonderful yiddishe momme of mine

    My yiddishe momme I need her more then ever now
    My yiddishe momme I'd like to kiss that wrinkled brow
    I long to hold her hands once more as in days gone by
    and ask her to forgive me for things I did that made her cry
    How few were her pleasures, she never cared for fashion's styles
    Her jewels and treasures she found them in her baby's smiles
    oh I know that I owe what I am today
    to that dear little lady so old and gray
    to that wonderful yiddishe momme of mine
