Lyrics

The Hardest Thing
By: Leslie Alexander, Kerry J. Conner © 2016 Paffe Music (BMI), woo the muse (ASCAP)

It’s the hardest thing I’ll ever do
Tryin’ to be a good mom to you
When I’m exhausted and want to quit
I can’t believe I asked for this

You kick and scream and pitch a fit
I grit my teeth to find my wits
I tell myself this is just a phase
And pray for guidance every day

I thought I’d been through hard times
But life back then was an easy ride
A mama’s job is never through
And raisin’ you is the hardest thing I’ll ever do

You’re a goldilocks hair with your daddy’s eyes
You’re a ketchup smile, eatin’ greasy French fries
You’re a pink tutu and ballet shoes
You make me crazy and wash away my blues

I know that time will fly right by
You’ll grow up in the blink of an eye
I’ll watch you go on your own way
And pray to God, I’ll be brave

I thought I’d been through hard times
But life back then was an easy ride
A mama’s job is never through
And raisin’ you is the hardest thing I’ll ever do

Even though we fuss and fight
It makes my day to hold you tight
Come what may it’s always easy, lovin’ you

I thought I’d been through hard times
But life back then was an easy ride
A mama’s job is never through
And raisin’ you is the hardest thing I’ll ever do
But raisin’ you is the best thing I get to do
