may you never lay your head down without a hand to hold
may you never make your bed out in the cold

Verse 1
your just like a great strong brother of mine and you know that i love you true
You never talk dirty behind my back and i know there are those that do
won't you please, won't you please, won't you bear in mind
love is a lesson to learn in our time
won't you please won't please won't you bear in mind for me

may you never lay your head down without a hand to hold
may you never make your bed out in the cold

Verse 2
and your just like a good close sister me and you know that i love you true
you hold no blade to stab me in the back and i know that some do
won't you please won't you please won't you bear in mind
love is a lesson to learn time
won't you please won't you please won't you bear it mind for me

May you never lay your head down without a hand to hold
May you never make your bed out in the cold

Repeat verse 1

May you never lose your temper if you get hit in a bar room fight
May you never lose your woman over night

May you never lay your head down without a hand to hold
May you never make your bed out in the cold

May you never lose your temper if you get hit in a bar room fight
May you never lose your woman over night x3
