5 Paul Simon BBC TV (Love Me Like A Rock)

I heard this song on the radio for the first time last night. I love it! It's all about Mommy Mary and the vocation of Catholic Motherhood (even if poor Paul Simon doesn't it know it yet)


When I was a little boy,
And the devil would call my name
I'd say "now who do,
Who do you think you're fooling? "

I'm a consecrated boy
I'm a singer in a sunday choir
Oh , my mama loves, she loves me
She get down on her knees and hug me
Like she loves me like a rock
She rocks me like the rock of ages

And loves me
She love me, love me, love me, love me

  1. Ha! I love Paul Simon and hadn't ever noticed these lyrics before!!! The tune never really jumped out at me so I never paid attention to this song. Now it will be one of my faves! Thanks! :)
