honour thy folks

(Saucepan Bach)
david griffith
HONOUR THY FOLKS

I’LL TELL YOU SOMETHING - MAYBE SOME TRUTH YOU KNEW BEFORE

LONG FORGOTTEN - DON’T COME OUT NO MORE

WHAT IN BLUE BLAZES - HAVE I BEEN DOING FOR SO LONG

NOT TO TELL YOU, NOT TO TELL YOU

ABOUT THE STRUGGLE THAT’S BEEN GOING ON


OH I’VE GOT ATTITUDE - I’VE GOT IT COMING OUT MY EARS

IT’S A WORRY - BUT AS LONG AS IT DON’T INTERFERE

WITH THE GETTING ON WITH IT, WITH THE GETTING ON WITH IT

THROUGH THE PASSING OF THE YEARS, PASSING OF THE YEARS


NOW I’M A PARENT MYSELF - WHAT DO I HAVE TO THANK YOU FOR

- THAT ENDURES - WELL THAT’S THE QUESTION AT THE CORE

AT THE HEART OF THE MATTER, AT THE HEART OF THE MATTER

WHAT ARE FAMILIES FOR - WHAT ARE FAMILIES FOR?


YOU SHOWED ME CHARACTER - YOU ARE THE BACKGROUND OF MY LIFE

YOU TAUGHT ME VIRTUE - TO PUT A VALUE ON WHAT’S RIGHT

AND A SENSE OF DIVINITY - A SENSE OF DIVINITY

IN YOUR OH SO FALLIBLE - AND LOVABLE WAY


DAVID GRIFFITH
