ANY MAN WHO LOVES HIS MOTHER
Lyrics: Sammy Cahn - Music: James Van Heusen
Dean Martin with male quartet and orchestra
conducted by Nelson Riddle (from "Robin and the 7 Hoods")
Any man who loves his mother is man enough for me -
Brightening her hours, sending her flowers
Though it's no anniversary.
Many men want fame and fortune -
It's gold they love to seek -
But I say a man who loves his mother is man enough for me.
Many men love dogs and kittens, and pet them constantly -
But show me a man who loves his mother
As much as she wants to be,
And I'll show you a man who is man enough for me.
