?Whatever you are, you're going to be
Whatever you are is all right with me
You're going to be what you want anyway?
These are the words I heard my father say
When I was a young girl and shy of men
He said, ?When you're ready, you'll know just when?
And when I was taken and thrown away
There wasn't a reason to face the day
And he said, ?Whatever you are, you're going to be
Whatever you are is all right with me
You're going to be what you want anyway?
These are the words I heard my father say
My father's soul is clear and easy
And though he's gone, he lives in my heart
When I go wrong I swear he sees me
And he smiles for a start and he says
?Wherever you are, I'm here by your side
My life is a rope that won't come untied
Oh, I'm going to stand by you, right or wrong?
These are the words within my father's song
These are the words within my father's song
