My father-in-lawís a great man
This I must concede
Heís always displayed good virtues
Never a thought of greed

He married out of college
A woman he adored
He didnít walk with God then
She brought him to the Lord

He couldíve been a pro golfer
He still displays that gift
Playing with Chi Chi and Arnold
His ego didnít lift

From one drug store to many
A partnership that grew
His boss saw his work ethic
Now he has a lakeside view

He started in a mobile home
And his life was ever blessed
He worked hard to the top
And God gave him no less

He would be the man to look to
For all types of advice
Anything from his golden lips
Should not be doubted twice

But I have the hardest head
The wisdom that he grants
I just canít seem to follow
Heís my father-in-law I can't!!



†All Day I Dream About Stanzas!!
