Silent Tree Music - Song Lyrics
( Family values song lyrics )
Copyright © 1996 - MickTerry.com
I never met a mother whose sanctity was preserved.
I never met a brother who wouldn't be glad to serve.
I never met a sister who got just whom she deserved.
I never met a father who couldn't help but keep his word.
Say, how goes with the FAMILY?
Is everybody well?
Say, what gives with theFAMILY?
You know, it's hard to tell.
I only had one mother we always would try to please.
I only had one brother who wouldn't let known his needs.
I only had one sister who couldn't conceal her greed.
I only had one father who wouldn't get up off his knees.
I'm glad I had my mother. She taught- me how to give.
I'm glad I had my brother. He taught- me how to live.
I'm glad I had my sister. She taught- me to receive.
I'm glad I had my father. He taught- me how to believe.
& though our times were troubled, we'd pull ourselves through the mire.
We'd build up through the rubble 'til we had re-built the spire.
& when our temple crumbled, we couldn't control the fire.
But family bonds were doubled & nothing could stop our desire.
