To Make My Father Proud
To Make My Mother Smile
I Need Not Conquer Worlds Or Fame

No Set The Pace For Style

If I Can Follow Through
On What They Gave Me As My Tools

I’ll Find The Way To Sail My Course

Avoiding Ships Of Fools

If I Don’t Come Up Number One
I’ll Stand Not Well Apart
As One For Numbered Numbers
When Knowing In My Heart

I‘ve Done All  To Be Done
To Always Do My Best
By Listening To Me Myself
So He Can Do The Rest

(Born Without Compromise,
Shall Follow The Feel Of Constant Care)

In My Eleventh Hour
I’ll Be A Man When

To Face Whatever Falls My Way
Prepared That Unashamed
To Just Recall The Part Of God

For Which I Have Been Named
A Man And A Woman’s Youngest Son
While Growing Still A Child
And That Will Make My Father Proud
And Make My Mother Smile
