Family Man
By John Hickman
Late Friday afternoon it seems
The fellows like to plan
To go out to their favorite bar
And drink up like a man.
Then they start the card game
Dealing hand after hand.
On into the night they play
Till they can hardly stand.
Now some guys have a reason
That they do this constantly.
But I still have one interest
And thatís my family.
Iíll hurry home to see them
My son Iíll hold so near
And listen to his stories
And try to calm his fears.
I am a family man
Thatís all Iíll ever be.
A family man forever more
Thatís the life for me.
While all the trial of the day
They take their toll on me
My tensions seem to fade away
With my family
The best thing that a man can do
On this earth, donít you hear
Is sharing all the moments
As he holds his family near.
I am a family man
Thatís all Iíll ever be.
A family man forever more
Thatís the life for me.
