Tummy Mommy

Kate Reid

 

I live on Gabriola, it's an island in the sea

And you'd have to take a boat ride just to come and visit me

I've got a dog and four cats and two moms, imagine that!

But there's only one of me

 

I'm five years old and very bold, you couldn't call me shy

I'm always asking questions, I want to the answers to how and why

So, mommies please, can you tell me, where do I come from

How come your skin is white and mine is brown? And they said,

 

Chorus:

You've got a tummy mommy

Ain't that lovely, honey     

That means you've got 1, 2, 3

Loving mommies

Your tummy mommy blessed us with the bestest gift of all

Your tummy mommy gave us the gift of you

 

Your mom and I, we love each other, we've been together a long time

And we soon decided that having a daughter would be sublime

So we signed a lot of papers at that adoption agency

Then, they found us a pregnant lady, mommy number three

 

Well, months passed by and she asked us to be by her side

So we drove across the border to her hospital room that night

We held tight to your tummy mommy's hands, a magical sight to see

Cuz when you were born we knew our family was complete

 

Chorus:

You've got a tummy mommy

Ain't that lovely, honey

And now you've got 1, 2, 3

Loving mommies

Your tummy mommy blessed us with the bestest gift of all

Your tummy mommy gave us the gift of you

 

Bridge:

When you were in your mommy's body                    

She loved you wholeheartedly
But she knew she couldn't raise you right, she wanted to give you a better life

So she gave you as a gift to your mom and me

You're the best gift we've ever received

 

Chorus:

You've got a tummy mommy

Ain't that lovely, honey

And now you've got 1, 2, yes, 3

Loving mommies

Your tummy mommy blessed us with the bestest gift of all

Your tummy mommy gave us the gift of you

 

Chorus:

I've got a tummy mommy

Ain't they lovely mommies

That means I've got 1, 2, yes, 3

Loving mommies

They’re my mommies and I've blessed them with the bestest gift of all

My mommies three have the gift of me

 

I live on Gabriola, it's an island in the sea

And there's lots of kids in the world who've got three mommies just like me
