My boyI hope my boy's no doctor,My boy by I-Am-Herbie
I pray he'll be no priest.
I hope my boy's no lawyer
And no soldier, no police.
I hope my boy's no broker,
I pray he'll be no mayor.
I hope my boy's no actor
And no singer, no purveyor
I hope my boy's none of those things,
but I hope you'll understand,
I hope him all the best success
I just care that he's a man.
So I pray to God that my son knows
I don't care 'bout his career.
I only want a son who's decent,
Who's honest and sincere
And I hope with all my heart and soul
That he'll get a happy nine to five
But my boy has just got to know
A man needs more to stay alive.
So I hope you see I want for my son
Only the very best.
I want him to be a real, true man
And know it deep within his chest.
So if my boy's a teacher or a lawyer,
If my boy is rich or poor.
I hope he knows he's not a title,
I hope he know's he's more.
