Default Song Contest

Well I entered the American Song Writer contest with my first attempt at
writing a song. I have been reading "The Craft of Lyric Writing" by Sheila Davis
and looking back I am not expecting any prizes to come my way, lol. Oh well I
am learning a lot from her book and will keep chipping away!

Default Your a Big Boy Now

Come here son I wish to speak to you
It's about your father who loves you so
God called him home but don't be sad
Our love for each other will see us through

I'm a Big Boy Now!
Brush my teeth and comb my hair
Pick up toys and feed the dog
Take out trash and say my prayers

Look after your Mother do what she asks
One last visit one final goodbye
We all have a purpose a reason a task
Until we stand together to Testify

I'm a Big Boy Now!
Brush my teeth and comb my hair
Pick up toys and feed the dog
take out the trash and say my prayers

I've come to visit this quiet place
A home to all until his Grace
Shedding Light unto the Darkness
Turn the Hurtful into the harmless

I'm a Big Boy Now!
Brush my teeth and comb my hair
Pick up toys and feed the dog
Take out the trash and say my prayers
