Daddy worked hard all life sweating in some factory
Goodyear tire and Rubber, was the only life he knew
They gave him a gold watch after 20 years of service
The retired and moved to Florida with my mama Lou.

They left Akron far behind and sold the house we lived in
Nothing there but memories now of how it used to be
Diane left and middle Ray moved out to California
Jimmy stayed in Ohio and they got left with me.

[Chorus:]
And they said Someday You’ll Have Children Of Your Own you will see
It takes more than money son to raise a family
I’m telling you right now that there’s things in this life are free
Someday You’ll Have Children Of Your Own and you will see.

I was much too young back then to know what he was saying
Daddy’s gone to Heaven now he left me all alone
Me I finally settled down but I can still remember
All the things he said I’d have to learn when I was grown.

Always lend a helping hand when your out on the highway
Take the time to smell the roses life will soon be gone
Teach your children well my son someday you’ll be without them
So I’ve tried to show them how to make it on their own.

[Chorus 2:]
I tell ‘em Someday You’ll Have Children Of Your Own you will see
It takes more than money son to raise a family
I’m telling you right now that there’s things in this life are free
Someday You’ll Have Children Of Your Own and you will see.

Someday You’ll Have Children Of Your Own
Someday You’ll Have Children Of Your Own
Someday You’ll Have Children Of Your Own.
