To Every Parent

    There are little eyes upon you,
    And they are watching night and day;
    There are little ears that quickly take
    In every word you say;
    There are little hands all eager to do
    Everything you do,
    And a little child who's dreaming of
    The day he'll be like you.
    You're the little child's idol,
    You're the wisest of the wise,
    In his little mind about you,
    No suspicions ever rise;
    He believes in you devoutly,
    Holds all you say and do;
    He will say and do in your way when
    He's grown up to be like you.
    There's a wide eyed little child who
    Believes you're always right,
    And his ears are always open and he
    Watches day and night;
    You are setting an example
    Everyday in all you do
    For the little child who's waiting
    To grow up to be like you.
