             She stood four feet or so, a little smaller than the rest
             A lower door in the east, flowing north, south and west
             She sang her simple song from a river plain and bold
             With feet all gnarled and worn and a heart of purest gold

                   She taught us all to care for our sister and our brother
                   Our father called her friend and we all called her mother

             She cared for the dying, for the sick and for the poor
             She cared for the wealthy, the tired and the sore
             No man on earth could touch her humble soul of graceís fame
             Letting only lepers kiss her, others bowed their head in shame

                   She taught us all to care for our sister and our brother
                   Our father called her friend and we all called her mother
                   Rock stars and presidents honored her as heaven sent
                   As she sat way in the back with her arm around a beggar

             They call me Solomon and I ruled a mighty kingdom
             Iíve known my share of women and know a lady when I see one

             She was a brave and noble soldier, full of humor, truly free
             The most liberated woman of the twentieth century
             She stood four feet or so, a little smaller than the rest
             A lower door in the east, flowing north, south and west *


* Based on recollections of Mother Theresa by Sir Bob Geldof, as detailed in his 1986 book Is That It?.
