'It seems that family values have changed since I was a kid, at least I remember it that way'

When I grow up to be a man
Like my father was when I was young
I hope I can make him so proud of me
Proud enough to call me his son

What makes these people so different now
What makes these times so strange?
Seems most people got most everything they need
How come we see this change

Our sons and daughters seem to be beyond our control
Their smile is fading fast, they're losing their soul
When will we ever learn, yet I'm a believer
