Teachin' Michael Anthony

 

I have been known disappearin' now and then

God only knows where you've been

There is a train over ridin' yesterday

Idle worries in the way

 

            Teachin' Michael Anthony your name

 

Irma keeps singin' children back in church

Clutchin' closer to the scraps

Exhaustin' ev'ry muscle possible

Outlastin' carelessness

 

            Teachin' Michael Anthony your name

 

Time so learns formin' goodness from past

God only knows what will last

There is a child barin' gladness in your eyes

Willin' to change a made up mind

 

            Teachin' Michael Anthony your name

 

I have been known disappearin' now and then

God only knows where you've been

 

            Teachin' Michael Anthony your name

 

            Teachin' Michael Anthony your name
