Song Description

There have been many times in my life that I've heard my Mom and Dad pushing me to do my best. This is an inspirational/ motivational song about not waiting to do your best.

Lyrics

When I was young I was so dumb. I only cared about having fun.
And I never gave much thought about things to come.
I just drove through life oblivious. Just scraped my way half-ass and stuff.
No money and no future. . . what had I done ?
And my thoughts ran back to my old man and the lesson that he gave me.
When he knelt down and took me by the hand and said, "Son now listen closely."
He said, "Why are you waiting to do your best ? What are you waiting for ?
Cause each new day's an open door. You don't have to be like all the rest.
You know, you can do better. . . Why are you waiting to do your best ?
Those words they burned inside of me. So I held my breath and I counted to three
And got myself up off the ground and dusted my jeans.
So I hit the books and got the degree and started living the life that showed the best of me
But I'll never forget the love that he gave to me means
When my thoughts ran back to my old man and the lesson that he gave me.
When he knelt down and took me by the hand and said, "Son now listen closely."
He said, "Why are you waiting to do your best ? What are you waiting for ?
Cause each new day's an open door. You don't have to be like all the rest.
You know, you can do better. . . Why are you waiting to do your best ?

Sadly now I'm too aware of these kids today they don't seem to care.
You better wake up America let 'em know you're there.
What are you waiting for ? What are you waiting for ?
Our world's in need and it needs you. Show what you've got. You know what to do
What are you waiting for ? Who are you saving it for ?
You can do anything that you want to do. So if not for them, do it for you.
"Why are you waiting to do your best ? What are you waiting for ?
Cause each new day's an open door. You don't have to be like all the rest.
You know, you can do better. . . So why are you waiting . . . .

"So why are you waiting to do your best ? What are you waiting for ?
Cause each new day's an open door. You don't have to be like all the rest.
You know, you can do better. . . So why are you waiting. . .
Why are you waiting. . . Why are you waiting to do your best ?
Why are you waiting to do your best ?
