LIFE

YOUR MOTHER AND FATHER GAVE IT TO YOU

THEN THEY CRADLED YOU - ROCKED YOU

FED YOU AND CLOTHED YOU

(because they love you)

THEY SENT YOU TO SCHOOL

(made you go)

YOU GREW UP,...

(to the dismay of Mom and Dad)

THEN

IT WAS TIME FOR YOU

TO BE IN CHARGE OF IT YOURSELF

ON YOUR OWN

LEARNING MORE AND MORE ABOUT IT

LATER,...

NOW WITH A STEADY JOB

YOU (and your spouse)

[marriage is a big step too]

FINALLY DECIDE TO HAVE A FAMILY OF YOUR OWN

LIKE YOUR MOTHER AND FATHER BEFORE YOU

YOU GIVE IT TO YOUR CHILDREN

THEN YOU CRADLE THEM - ROCK THEM

FEED THEM AND CLOTH THEM

(because you love them)

YOU SEND THEM TO SCHOOL

(make them go)

BUT THEY GROW UP SO FAST

AND TO YOUR DISMAY

THE TIME HAS COME

(too soon)

IT IS TIME TO LET THEM GO

THEY ARE NOW IN CHARGE OF IT

THEY ARE NOW ON THEIR OWN

LEARNING MORE AND MORE ABOUT IT

THIS THING CALLED LIFE

AND ON IT GOES,...
