Het nummer is geïnspireerd door Simons verdriet over de dood van de hond van zijn familie, terwijl Simon heeft gezegd dat de titel zijn oorsprong heeft in een kip-en-ei-gerecht genaamd 'Mother and Child Reunion' dat Simon zag op het menu van een Chinees restaurant. Het tweede couplet beschrijft het effect van wat er gebeurde op "de vreemde en treurige dag," maar zonder duidelijk te maken wat er aan de hand was.

Songtekst

No I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away, oh, little darling of mine.
I can't for the life of me
Remember a sadder day
I know they say let it be
But it just don't work out that way
And the course of a lifetime runs
Over and over again

No I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reu-nion
Is only a motion away, oh, little darling of mine.

I just can't believe it's so,
and though it seems strange to say
I never been laid so low
In such a mysterious way
And the course of a lifetime runs
Over and over again

But I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
When the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away,
Oh, oh the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away
Oh the mother and child reunion
Is only a moment away
