TAKE THE SHORTS CORNER

TAKE THE SHORTS CORNER
DON’T GO CORNER TO CORNER
TAKE THE SHORTS CORNER
GIVE A LITTLE OF LOVE TO THE ONE
WHO IS STEALING HER DREAMS
AS SHE TRIES TO TAKE CARE OF HER BOYS
SHE TRY TO KEEP THEM TOGETHER
WITH HARDLY A PLATE OF LOVE
TIL SHE MET A MAN , HE SHOW HER THE WAY
HELPING HER GET ON HER FEET
AND WALK THIS WAY

SHE SOON HAD A DAUGHTER
BUT NO MONEY TO RAISE HER
SO SHE MADE A WISH TO FIND HER
AS SHE LET HER GO SO YOUNG
TO A LADY THAT ONCE HELP HER WITH HER BOYS
SHE REMEMBER YEARS LATER
AND ASK HER TO TAKE CARE OF HER DAUGHTER
SHE TOOK CARE OF HER BOYS THE BEST SHE COULD
YET SHE DIE AT A YOUNG AGE 
MISSING HER DAUGHTER
HER DAUGHTER FOUND THE BOYS
AND LEARN ALL ABOUT HER

NOW THE FAMILY BECAME ONE
TAKE THE SHORTS CORNER
DON’T GO CORNER TO CORNER
LOVE SOMEONE WHO IS UNFORTURE
YOU WILL HAVE A RICH HEART
NEVER TO PART
FINDING EACH OTHER LOVE
AFTER ALL THESE YEARS OF LETING TEARS
BY; SHAWN JONES
