About My Mom
This lovely 1932 song by Walter Donaldson was quite popular at time, with recordings by George Jessell and Rudy Vallee, among others. Tony Bennett relates in his autobiography The Good Life, that his father used to sing this song to him and his brothers and sisters when they were children.

Lyrics

I’ve got one real friend more than a friend I find
The way I feel friend, she’s all of this heart of mine
I’m all for her I know she’ll always be for me
I’m on my way friend, I’m going home to see

My mom, I love her
My mom, you’d love her
Who wouldn’t love her, my mom
That sweet somebody, thinks I’m somebody
My pal, my buddy, my mom

Anything I do she’s my only inspiration
Anytime I’m blue she’s my only consolation

As years come on her
I gaze upon her
She’s my Madonna
My mom
My pal, my buddy, my mom

Yes, anything I do she’s my only inspiration
Anytime I’m blue she’s my only consolation

As years come on her
I gaze upon her
She’s my Madonna
My mom
