Tribute

placed in Billboard Magazine

by Bette Midler

14th April 1984

 
 I GOT MY MOTHER'S EYES
AND MY FATHER'S HAIR
DOES ANYBODY REALLY CARE ?
IT'S GETTING COLD OUT HERE
WELL I KEEP WALKING WITH MY HEAD HELD HIGH     
WITH MY HEAD TO THE SKY
WITH MY MOTHER'S EYES ...
 
ANY MY MOTHERS EYES ARE WITH ME
IN THE DARKNESS THAT'S BEEN PAID FOR
I HOLD A NAMELESS STRANGER
DON'T KNOW WHY
HAVE I BEEN ALL THAT I COULD
HAVE I SEEN MORE THAN I SHOULD
WITH MY MOTHER'S EYES
 
AND MY MOTHER'S EYES ARE WITH ME
IN THE CHILLY WINDS OF AUTUMN
IF I AIN'T HERE BY WINTER, SHE'LL KNOW WHY
I'VE SEEN ALL THAT I DARE
I'VE SEEN MORE THAN MY SHARE
FORGIVE ME IF I STARE
WITH MY MOTHER'S EYES.

IN LOVING MEMORY

TOM JANS
February 9, 1949  - March 25, 1984

This is a full page printed in caps, with just the lyrics of "My Mother's Eyes" as above. The "Any" at the beginning of verse two, is not a typo by me, but I suspect it is a typo by Billboard.
