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

HOLMES, RUPERT
