Boy In This Life

By Jeff Shumate © 2010

Every day a boy is born,

Will he have a man to lead him through the thorns?

Of life…

Looking at this life, wondering what is wrong,

Why all the suffering and the days seem long,

I stop for a moment and take it in,

Look into your eyes and see your grin,

You seem so happy and full of joy,

God bless your life, you're my baby boy,

In this life there's plenty wrong,

Plenty of hardship, plenty sad songs,

Every day a boy is born,

Will he have a man to lead him through the thorns?

Of life…

I look at my boy with a grin of my own,

Ill love him every minute till the Lord takes me home,

Son in my life, plenty's gone wrong,

Plenty of hardship, plenty sad songs,

Its just life…

When I fall down, I get back up,

I dust off my pants and chalk it up,

I ask the Lord where to go,

Cause if I don't ask, I don't know,

Every day a boy is born,

Will he have a man to lead him through the thorns?

Of life…

Boy listen to me close, hear what I say,

I have some advice for you today,

As you live your life, don't do wrong

Honor the Lord and sing your own song,

There's gonna come a day that you shall fall

Just know the Lord forgives one and all,

Don't let any man say he's better than you,

We all put on our pants one leg and then two,

Every day a boy is born,

Will he have a man to lead him through the thorns?

Of life…

One day you're going to meet a girl,

Love her with your heart; treat her like a pearl,

After you're married and make your own home,

You'll wonder and worry about the kids of your own,

When your wife gets angry, and stirs your pride,

Hear all that she says, and take it in stride,

When the storms of life, come your way,

Stay loyal to your wife, love her every day,

Every day a boy is born,

Will he have a man to lead him through the thorns?

Of life…

Boy ask the Lord where to go,

Cause if you don't ask you won't know,

And if you fall down, you get back up,

Dust off your pants, and chalk it up,

The most important thing to know,

Is never lose your grin, never let it go,

It just life…

One of these days a boy will be born,

You'll have to be a man to lead him through the thorns

Of life!
