Some songs for sons and mothers to dance to are "A Song for my Son" by Mikki Viereck and "Child of Mine" by Carol King. Other songs are "Bridge Over Troubled Water" by Simon and Garfunkel, "I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womack and "In My Life" by the Beatles.
"A Song for my Son" speaks directly to the idea of a son on his wedding day. It touches on the passage of time and what the son has meant to his mother. It includes the sentiments of a mother to her son, asking that he is kind, sweet and gentle. It continues to ask that he be fair, while reminding him that he will always be his mother's son.
"Child of Mine" shares a sentiment of gratitude of a mother to her child. It states the wishes of a mother to not hold her child back and to watch her child grow. Additionally, it states that the child has taught the mother, and ultimately that she is glad her child is hers.
"I Hope You Dance" is another song that expresses wishes for a life well-lived, expressing wishes for someone to never lose his sense of wonder or to take a breath for granted. It further sends wishes that when one door closes, that another will open, and ultimately wishes for people to dance.
