Jermaine Jackson - Oh Mother Lyrics

Have I told you, you are my river
That never stops for rest
Have I thanked you for letting me come out of you
And giving me all of your best

Have I thanked yo for having our family
Without them I wouldn't be here
Have I told you no matter how far I may go
All of you always are near

Oh mother you've given everything to me
Oh mother you've never asked for anything
Oh mother I'm sorry for all those times I hurt you so
When all along it was really me
Scared of letting go
So afraid to grow

Have I told you I'll love you forever
Have I told you I'll love you always
Have I told you the difference you make in my life
You make it your own special way

Oh mother you've given everything to me
Oh mother you've never asked for anything
Oh mother you've given everything to me
Have I told you, you never asked for anything
That I love you
Have I told you today

  14. Hanni Basczok

    Dieses Lied ist der schönste "Liebesbeweis" an eine Mutter💞💞💞

  15. Hanni Basczok

    Ein sehr schönes und gefühlvolles Lied.Die "Liebe"zu einer Mutter bleibt ein Leben lang und noch länger bestehen.Wenn ich dieses Lied höre,denke ich sofort an meine Mama,und werde sehr traurig😢😢😢,weil sie nicht mehr lebt.Da merkt man erst,wie wichtig eine Mutter für ein Kind ist.❤💞❤💞

  31. Vernostonus

    Back when sweet music came straight out of the heart and soul of great talented artists expressing their love through their heavenly gift. What has this world become, especially the music industry? Shame on all record companies for selling us bullshit nowadays and thinking we would not smell the difference.

  32. Aurelia Bessard

    I fell in love with this song the minute I heard it. Jermaine is such an awesome talent. His songwriting skills and smooth vocals are simply God-given. Beautiful...

  33. Alexis Ewing

    It's a beautiful song😢I was getting teary-eyed listening to it

  38. MusicLover P

    The the person who uploaded the video and said I assume it was written for Katherine well guess what when you ASS/U/ME you make an ass out of you not me.Of course it was written for his mother you jackass.SMDFH

    Alex Williams

    I'm sorry for your mother death especially if it 9yrs and I know you miss her very much so my thing is just remember the good and bad times when you was a kid to your adulthood especially on Thanksgiving so keep your head up and stay away from the Chessecake.Lol

    MusicLover P

    @Alex Williams
    Thank you so much yes the holidays have been different since she's passed away but i'm dealing with it much better now than i was during the first two years after she got called to go home.Yes i always think of the great times and also the times when i was bad ass hardheaded kid always getting put on punishment or getting my little behind whupped with the belt.LOL
    Now as far as the cheesecake i'll pass on that one.LOL
    Thank you very much.


    I am certain Jermaine didn't write it but it is dedicated to her.

    Emma Poulmarch

    +1980Triumph why he couln't write it? he's composer too!


    @IDreamYouSaid - look up the notes.

  39. 80's kid

    Despite that one weird lyric (letting me come out of u) it's a beautiful ballad and fitting tribute to any mother.

    Daryl Parkin

    I get what you're saying but carrying and giving birth to a child is one of the greatest gifts to a child's life. I think it's fitting

  40. Rebecca Leddington

    Jermaine thanks Catherine so beautifully for being his mom. She is the perfect role model of what a true mom really is !

  41. Zoe Kanaris

    hahahahahahahahaha so disturbing

  42. Sean Serritella

    This is the worst song of all time. Have I thanked you for letting me come out of you?

  43. somekidnamedold

    Sometimes I think that this song, tell me I'm not dreaming, and Dynamite should have been on the victory album...?

  44. Cunca Lega

    very touching song

  45. cleder mendo

  50. Nickleby2

    The boys used to perform To make My father proud, at all their performances, also 2300 Jackson street was homage to both parents.

  51. liacashmere58

    @NJNetFan I know lol. Like what the hell? All these years I've been thinking it was just me. He should have changed the line and this song would be on point

  52. BillieJean126

    i love Jermaine, his vioce...theres so much emotions, he sings so honestly, as if he wanted to touch, hug or kiss her (no matter who), i love not surprised hes still loved, because even if he is miles apart his tender vioce tells me im not lonely, that it still worth to fight for better everything, no matter what it is...god bless you, have a nice day :-*

  53. Eric Reese

    This is one of the most wonderful songs ever written...

  54. Dianne Chilgren

    no...just differently.

  55. Muhammad Ali

    Rakastan sinua äiti... Hyvää äitienpäivää!

  56. nathan damaine

    @NJNetFan loooooooooooool

  57. Sean Serritella

    I don't care what any one says. This is, hands down, the worst song of all time. "Have I thanked you, for letting me come out of you?"???? It gets no worse than that.

    Stephanie Bruce

    Sean Serritella....RIP buddy

  58. youthchoir1
