~ Somebody's Hero ~

~ Somebody’s Hero ~

She's never pulled anybody from a burning building
She's never rocked Central Park to a half a million fans
Screaming out her name
She's never hit a shot to win the game

She's never left her foot prints on the moon
She's never made a solo hot air balloon ride
Around the world
No she's just your everyday average girl

But she's somebody's hero
A hero to her baby with the skinned up knee
A little kiss is all she needs
The keeper of the Cheerios
The voice that brings Snow White to life
Bed time stories every night
And that smile lets her know
She's somebody's hero

She didn't get a check every week like a 9 to 5'er
But she's been a waiter and a cook and taxi driver
For 20 years there at home
Until the day her girl was grown
Giving all her love to her was her life's ambition
But now her baby's moving on
And she'll soon be missing her
But not today
Those are tears of joy running down her face

She's somebody's hero
A hero to her daughter
In the wedding dress
She gave her wings to leave the nest
It hurts to let her baby go
Down the aisle she walks right by
She looks back into her mother's eyes
And that smile lets her know
She's somebody's hero

30 years have flown right passed
Her daughter's staring at all the photographs
Of her mother
And she wishes she could be like that
Oh, but she already is
She's somebody's hero

The hero to the mother in the rocking chair
She runs a brush through her silver hair
The envy of the nursing home
She drives by every afternoon
Feeds her mom with a spoon
And that smile lets her know
Her mother's smile lets her know
She's somebody's hero
