Wilma McNabb Sings, and Wow She Loves Her Son [Video]

I’m going to keep this simple and let the full lyrics, which I have painstakingly transcribed and assembled below the jump, speak for themselves:

  • Donovan McNabb, who retired in 2011 and played his last meaningful game in 2010, has a very supportive mother
  • His mother, Wilma McNabb, recently recorded a song about her son
  • The song, which has a grudge against choruses, features a creepy quotient that would make Lucille Bluth cringe with embarrassment
  • The line about the clock ticking away is either the most oblivious or the most passive-aggressive line ever to be put to music

Drink it in, folks:

When Your Heart is on the field
by Mama McNabb

I will be there to cheer you on
You are my son, my champion
He gives me strength when I am weak
He shows me who I want to be
He’s my light when I can’t see
He gives me reasons to believe

When the cheers…fade away
I’ll be there at the end of the day
When your heart is on the field
From his first game, to stadium lights
From fall to inspiring winter nights
I’ll be watching, feeling so proud
Whether he wins or loses with his home crowd
It’s hard to watch
But I won’t turn away
Because I’m his biggest fan
Every night and every day, I’m his biggest fan

When your heart is on the field
I’m right there watching you (watching you)
Wearing his jersey, making him signs
Seeing all his hard work, knowing it’s his time
Realizing others feel the same way, they worry too
Wanting everyone’s son to do his best they all amaze you
Seeing all the lives he’s touched in the excitement of children’s eyes
Always telling him reach for the stars
He’s already touched the sky!

Emotions fill the air
Something comes over me
Like the end of the game
When the clock ticks away with speed.
He’s the one that they trust the game in his hands
He leads his team, everything goes to plan
The final score doesn’t matter
I’ve already won
I’ve been a champion because he’s my son

He gives me strength when I am weak
He shows me who I want to be
He’s my light when I can’t see
He gives me reasons to believe
When the cheers…fade away
I’ll be there at the end of the day
You know that love is real
When you heart is on the field

I will be there to cheer you on
You are my son, my champion
