When I Was Young

Rating: 5.0
When i was young my dad was very strict
He didn't want me to be a thug in the street
My father taught me the importance of time keeping
The bad side of lying to get out of situations by fiddling

He didn't want me to be a thug in the street
When i was young my father was never thrifty
My father taught me the importance of time keeping
The good side of keeping my word without quibbling

When i was young my father was never thrifty,
Or, the bad side of lying to get out of situations by fiddling
But, the good side of keeping my word without quibbling.
When i was young my dad was very strict

Lesson's learned by a wise father in well articulated repetitious lines, do we not all learn by repetition? As long as we are repeating what is right!
