Mother's Day Alternatives – Welcome!

You have arrived at this page because you have purchased a product containing one of the following Mother's Day songs: Don’t Forget! (from Songs For Every Easter) or My Mum (from Songs For Every Occasion & A Spring Thing).

It has come to our attention that the lyrics for both of these songs have been the cause of some concern for a number of parents. Having looked at the lyrics, which were written in 1995 and 2001 respectively, we agree that they are open to misunderstanding, and are a possible cause of offence. This of course was the very opposite of our intentions in writing the songs to celebrate and honour Mums everywhere and to recognise the invaluable role they play.

We have to recognise that times have moved on and a more suitable song was needing to be written. We fully accept that for some schools it would be inappropriate to sing the songs Don't Forget! or My Mum that are included within these collections. Therefore we would like to offer you, as an alternative, one of two brand-new Mother's Day songs written in 2018.

You have the choice to download either You’re The Best Mum For Me or Wonderful Mum using your online Words on Screen™ player. The player highlights lyrics as the song plays, making teaching and learning songs simple. It also allows you to download and print lyrics and scores as well as extract MP3s. Instructions about how to download your song are shown below. Find out more about Words on Screen™.

You can listen to a sample of each song below by clicking on either video.

We hope you enjoy your chosen Mother's Day song.
