Hank

To a boy who looks just like his mother,
Who’s a sister to her brother
Who sings this song to that boy from far away

I am young but you are younger
And til you speak more words than mumble,
You’ll have to lend an ear to everything i say

So be kind and love your mother and your father
Though sometimes they seem to bother
Come my age and you’ll know

There the ones who’ll always love you and support you,
They prayed for you before you
Stepped foot into this world
That’s one thing that I’ve learned

I remember you were walking
In a month I’ll hear you talking
There’s a million things I’d love to say to you

And though your parents, they are wiser
And will be better advisers,
Maybe hearing these things twice will get them through

So go and find a girl for whom your love is selfless
Someone who makes you helpless
To change the way you feel
But stay away from girls who always look so pretty,
But who’s hearts just aren’t fitting
For the man in you I see

Would you remember that for me?

When you find yourself alone
In times of trouble
Reach inside you and above you
There’s nothing He can’t heal

And if it is you do not end up with a brother
Just call your older uncle
I would always lend an ear

Would you remember that for me?
