Things That I Should Know

When I was just a boy of three and sitting on my fathers knee
He's tickle me, and make me laugh
When I was just a boy of four
my mother dressed me warm
And out the door I'd go,
I loved the snow

Tell me why the wind blows,
Tell me why the flowers grow
Why should I know
Tell me where the winters go,
The skies so blue the nights aglow
Teach me all the things that I should know

When I was just a boy of ten on Saturday I'd pitch 'em in
And you would catch, you were the best
When I was just a boy of twelve on Christmas Eve we'd drive around
To see the lights, they were so bright


And I know how much money, how much time, how much love
You've given me all of my life
And when things aren't so right I count on you to lift me up
You've been there all of my life

Now it's time to be a man I still think of all the times when I was young
I'll pass them on
And to the sons of mine I'll pass on all the love that you give
You taught me well
