lyrics

That’s How I Am

Mama taught me to treasure hearts
Daddy taught me to “finish, but never start...”
Tender and tough in equal parts
That’s how I am

Mama took me to Sunday school
Daddy showed me derring-do
Superheroes and golden rules
That’s how I am

Mama brought laughter and fun
Daddy said stick to your guns
Don’t compromise on principle
Stand by your beliefs

It’s open to choice what we’re gonna be
But the apple don’t fall far from the tree
There’s truth in that old homily
What my parents instilled lives on in me

Mama taught me to lend an ear
Daddy showed me how to get it in gear
To persevere
That’s how I am

Mama showed it was okay to cry
Daddy exemplified do or die
Be and deserve a friend
That’s how I am

Mama gave a sense of peace
Daddy said speak my piece
Keep a belly full of fire
Not swallowed pride

It’s open to choice what we’re gonna be
But the apple don’t fall far from the tree
There’s truth in that old homily
What my parents instilled lives on in me
