A Mother’s Day tribute, (useful at any time of year), based on the melody and music of the awesome Louis Armstrong classic, “A Wonderful World.” (We ask that all who use this script will have purchased, or will purchase a copy of the original sheet music and/or recording of this song from the source, as we have).
Amid all the claims and counterclaims about the roles and makeup of the modern family, one constant remains: the absolute importance for active, committed and growing-each-day-in-the-craft mother and father. We realize that, as someone once said, “not all parents graduate at the top of their class” but that is the status and goal for which all should aim to achieve. And we also recognize that some children will grow up without the advantage of one or more parents. In which case, nowhere are the words of Christ more clear and meaningful than in directing those around to attempt to be there in support.
This script is written to assist kids of all ages, (including those in their adult years), to offer a tribute and salute to mothers.

Sample Song lyrics:
I wanna say
My Mom’s so fine
Makes me feel great, I’m glad she’s mine
Wanna tell ya right now
‘Bout my wonderful Mom.
When the day is yuck
Each day’s a fight
Both day’n night
But I’ll be OK
With my wonderful Mom
In the times we are a’livin’. . . .
