a very special lady
Her years number ninety-four
Every year around Christmastime
She makes her cookies galore.
She bakes and bakes with all her heart
She bakes from morning till night
Grinding figs and frosting cut outs
Her finished product is a pure delight.
The people she gives out to, number far too many
And because she is so sweet - she rarely saves any
Sons, daughters, close relatives and friends
Grandchildren, doctor, her list never ends.
This lady whose years number ninety-four
Expects so very little and gives so much more
You can search far and wide but you'll never find
A lady so caring.... A lady so kind.
So, the next time you drive down Efner Street
Make sure you stop in and say hello
And see the lady from the west side
In a city by the name of Buffalo.
This lady is special..this lady is rare
She's my mother-in-law and none can compare
Her many wonderful qualities and loving ways
Are far too many to sum up within just one day.
So, I send my love each and every day
With heartfelt gratitude along the way
You can search north, south, east and west
But there is only one Cookie Lady and Nellie’s the
