Posts Tagged ‘You’ve Got To Stand For Something’

Now Daddy didn’t like trouble,
But if it came along
Everyone that knew him knew
Which side that he’d be on
He never was a hero,
Or this county’s shinin’ light
But you could always find him
Standing up
For what he thought was right
He’d say you’ve got to stand for something
Or you’ll fall for anything
You’ve got to be your own man
Not a puppet on a string
Never compromise what’s right
And uphold your family name
You’ve got to stand for something
Or you’ll fall for anything
Now we might have been better off
Or owned a bigger house
If Daddy had done more givin’ in
Or a little more backing down
But we always had plenty
Just living his advice
Whatever you do today
You’ll have to sleep with tonight
He’d say you’ve got to stand for something
Or you’ll fall for anything
You’ve got to be your own man
Not a puppet on a string
Never compromise what’s right
And uphold your family name
You’ve got to stand for something
Or you’ll fall for anything
Now I know that things are different than
They were in Daddy’s days
But I still believe
What makes a man
Really hasn’t changed
He’d say you’ve got to stand for something
Or you’ll fall for anything
You’ve got to be your own man
Not a puppet on a string
Never compromise what’s right
And uphold your family name
You’ve got to stand for something
Or you’ll fall for anything
You’ve got to stand for something
Or you’ll fall for anything.
