Be strong, my son, be fearless
Be honest respectful and true.
Be honourable to those you encounter
Be most of all just be you.
Be fair, my son, be thoughtful
But remember to pause for fresh air.
Treat your lady like she is your princess
And show her how much you care.
Work hard, my son, be unyielding
But accept that it’s hard to succeed.
Defeats are just delays in the journey
Overcome them with strength, and believe.
Remember, my son, to be thankful
You’ve travel an awful long way
But your journey has only just started
This game is still yours to play
Be loyal, my son and be respectful
Be thankful and work to improve
Be careful my son don’t be careless
This life to is too easy to loose
Remember to treat others as equal
Don’t judge folk that you do not know
Don’t trust in other folks instincts
Love others and that love will grow
Be a leader, my son, be upstanding
Do what’s right despite what you’re told
Don’t follow when others are foolish
Be brave be upstanding and bold
I’m proud of you son so remember
I’ll always be there when you call
I’ll be there to pick up the pieces
And give you a hand when you fall
Ill forever be at your shoulder
Watching with pride as you grow
I’ll be there when you need some guidance
I’ll be there, just so you know
