To My Oldest Son Dubby

by

Jack Mann 

To my oldest son Dubby

Who grew up so strong

And over the years

Could never do wrong

To earn on his own

His education you see

I am so proud

As if it were me

Life still goes on

Now that youíre done

To enjoy the happiness

That you have just won

I know that you will always

Be my pride and joy

As we grew up together

When you were a boy

Working together

From day to day

We acquired a love

That is here to stay

As I grow older

And my time gets near

Remember the good times

With nothing to fear

And as you go on

Towards lifeís narrow goal

Pass it on to others

That you meet in the poll

Especially your children

Your wife and your friends

For thatís all that matters

When you get to lifeís end
