Two Voices

Misbehaved my first week of school
Hard for a young boy to follow the rules
My folks gave advice so long ago
Still hear two voices wherever I roam

They say, "Son,
Every day life presents a new test
Don't be content unless you do your best
Earn respect, look people in their eyes
Go through life with your head held high"

I tried to always follow those words
I learned from the best while growing up
I'm not perfect but I still try
Good advice to follow throughout life

I work hard nearly everyday
Continue to earn an honest pay
As two voices echo in my mind
Words of advice that survive through time

They say,
"Every day life presents a new test
Don't be content unless you do your best
Earn respect, look people in their eyes
Go through life with your head held high"

Now my turn to teach my lessons of life
To raise my kid correctly with my wife
I learned what to say to teach my son
From those two voices full of advice

The day will come when he must part
We don't worry, he's quite smart
While he's alive he will never forget
Two voices follow him to his sunset

They say, "Son,
"Every day life presents a new test
Don't be content unless you do your best
Earn respect, look people in their eyes
Go through life with your head held high"

As long as I'm here I can never forget
Two voices follow me to my sunset
