lyrics

"Don't do like I've done", said Father to Son
"And let this world leave you cold
Do what you can and love what you do
Or it's a long and lonely road"

"Don't do like I've done", said Father to Son
"There's a difference between money and wealth
It's never the power, it's never the title
It's never the money itself"

"Don't do like I've done", said Father to Son
"Just let the pendulum swing.
You will get yours and they will get theirs
As sure as this world will spin.
This world will always spin"

"Don't do like I've done", said Father to Son
"I've made mistakes in the past.
I am what I am, here lies a man
If only these words would last"
