I・m Grateful for Everything


GSM 2007 Cherishing Youth Day・s Song

This morning my mom said,
:You・ve got to pay me for my cooking.
Three meals a day, for the last nine years,
You got to pay for what you eat,
No more freebie treats,
There・s a padlock on the kitchen, I・m not your maid.;

I can・t pay, but I can start by being grateful,
Thank you Mom, for your love and care,
Well, Thank you Mom, I didn・t know how good I had it,
Hey! I・m feeling glad for my Mom and Dad.

This morning my dad said,
:You got to pay me for my driving.
Gas ain・t cheap, and there・s wear and tear;
I・m going to charge for every night
You・ve been sleeping underneath my roof;
Your bed・s out on the driveway, and all your stuff is there.;

I can・t pay, but I can start by being grateful,
Thank you Dad, for letting me stay here,
Well, Thank you Dad, I didn・t know how good I had it,
Hey! I・m feeling glad for my Mom and Dad.

This morning my teacher, said,
:I・m not interested in teaching. Nobody listens, it・s just a waste of time.
I・m not puttin・ on a show. You・ve got to pay me for what I know;
Learn it or lose it, that・s the way it goes.;

I can・t pay, but I can start by being grateful,
Thank you teachers for letting me learn here,
Hey! Thank you Mom and Dad, I didn・t know how good I had it,
Hey! I・m feeling glad for my Mom and Dad.

This morning the earth said,
:You・ve got to pay me for my growing,
All those crops for all these years.
Now, you cut down all my trees
You waste me as you please
I・m fed up, you humans got to go.;

I can・t pay but I can start by being grateful
Thank you Earth for your love and care,
Now, Thank you Earth I didn・t know how good I had it.
Hey, I・m feeling glad
Hey, I・m feeling glad for my Mom and Dad.
