MY SON Sung by Mary Cole
Lyrics
MY SON
Written by Mary Cole and Greg Garrett
© 2007 Cole/Garrett Music

VERSE 1

My son, go out and change the world.
Make sure you change it for the best!
Be strong. Keep hope alive
When Life puts you to the test.

CHORUS

Sometimes Lady Luck comes smiling,
Takes you waltzing ?round her dance floor,
Leaves you giddy and tiptoes out the door.
If you?re wise, you?ll shrug and smile
And tuck the mem?ry of her waist-line
In a box of golden treasures
Opened on dark days.
LUCK IS?
JUST ANOTHER CIRCUMSTANCE OF LIFE.

VERSE 2

My son, use your heart and your head.
I know you?ll choose what is right.
Be kind. Keep steadfast through
Those times when day seems like night.

CHORUS

Sometimes Lady Luck comes smiling,
Takes you waltzing ?round her dance floor,
Leaves you giddy and tiptoes out the door.
If you?re wise, you?ll shrug and smile
And tuck the mem?ry of her waist-line
In a box of golden treasures
Opened on dark days.
LUCK IS?
JUST ANOTHER CIRCUMSTANCE OF LIFE.

VERSE 3

My son, manage well all those things
A man is able to decide.
Take heart. Keep your calm during
Each of Nature?s turbulent rides.

CHORUS

Sometimes Lady Luck comes smiling,
Takes you waltzing ?round her dance floor,
Leaves you giddy and tiptoes out the door.
If you?re wise, you?ll shrug and smile
And tuck the mem?ry of her waist-line
In a box of golden treasures
Opened on dark days.
LUCK IS?
JUST ANOTHER CIRCUMSTANCE OF LIFE.
O?oh,
LUCK IS?
JUST ANOTHER CIRCUMSTANCE OF LIFE.
