M is for the many things she gave me
O means only that she's growing old
T is for the tears she shed to save me
H is for her heart of purest gold
E is everything she did to help me
R is right and right she'll always be!
Put them all together they spell
The word that means the world to me!
Words by Howard Johnson and Music by Theodore Morse.
I THINK Al Jolson sang it. It was written in 1915.
