The Stranger the Woman and the Kid

Verse 1

How many times have I looked up to someone I didn't really know

And never shared that I did care before I had to go

 

Change 1

No I fear it's gonna happen here if I don't tell you right now

Before I go my way please accept my praise in the best way I know how

 

Chorus

I'm the stranger you don't know and you don't know what you did

Many admire the woman in you but I admire the kid

 

Verse 2

How many children obey their Dad when their old enough to fly

How many children will say your right and they look him in the eye?

 

Change 2

You didn't get credit was due but you did what was right

Be aware of the stranger there and he can see the light

 

Chorus

I'm the stranger you don't know and you don't know what you did

Many admire the woman in you but I admire the kid

 

 

Verse 3

How many mothers will cry out loud from the pain they have had

How many daddies will take the blame when the children grow up bad?

 

Change 3

Thank God for all the children who love their parent’s right

Be aware of the stranger there and he can see the light

 

Chorus

I'm the stranger you don't know and you don't know what you did

Many admire the woman in you but I admire the kid
