    Default Song - to make my father proud

    What do you think of this song? It's like he predicted his entire life.

    To Make My Father Proud"

    To make my father proud
    To make my mother smile
    I need not conquer worlds, or fame,
    Not set, the pace for style

    If I can follow through
    on, what they gave me as my tools,
    I'll find a way to sail my course
    Avoiding ships of fools

    If I don't come up, number one
    I'll stand not well apart
    As one for numbered numbers
    When knowing in my heart

    I've done all to be done
    To always do my best
    By listening to me, myself
    So he can do or else
    (Of without compromise,
    Shall follow the feel of constant care)

    In my eleventh hour
    I'll be a man the way
    To face whatever falls my way
    Prepared that are a shame
    To just be called a part of God

    For which I have been named
    A man and a woman's youngest son
    while growing, still a child
    And that will make my father proud
    And make my mother smile...
    (Proud)

    One of my all time favourite young MJ songs. Stunning.

    Weird... I don't remember this song at all...

    Is it from Farewell my Summer Love?

    As soon as possible I will give it a listen. Great lyrics. - Are they written by MJ?? Or who wrote lyrics?

    Yeah, it's the final song on Farewell My Summer Love album. It wasn't written by MJ, the recording is from 1973 Motown sessions, which pre-dates MJ writing his own songs. But he sings the hell out of it. It is in my top 5 pre-OTW MJ solo songs, along with You Are There, One Day In Your Life, If'n I Was God and Music & Me.

    I love this song so much. It is bittersweet considering his relationship with his father.

    Sad song. I hope Joe listens to this song and smiles. His boy did make him proud.

    Very "personal" song. It's like MJ was sending Joe and many other fathers a message.



    If I don't come up, number one
    I'll stand not well apart
    As one for numbered numbers
    When knowing in my heart
    I've done all to be done
    To always do my best
    By listening to me, myself
    To just be called a part of God
    For which I have been named



    Missing Michael.....
