Best of You

Chris Nandor

You've got some catching up to do
We've had this family for awhile
Along comes someone new
We're happy just to meet you
And I'll do my best to teach you
Everything you need to fit right in

I'll try to get the best of you
As you watch what I say and do
I love you truly my son

I've never had a son before
A little version of your dad
And someday so much more
I've got good parts and bad parts
I pray you got my best parts
And I'm sorry for the rest

I will fail you, a lot
I'll get angry, I'll be thoughtless
And humble I am not
But my love for you will grow
More than you could ever know
Until you have one of your own
