MY BROTHER AND ME

Born in a country cabin,
Wild and free,
Two ragged tattered urchins,
My brother and me.

Our parents were older,
Not much pampering had we,
But we didn't expect it,
My brother and me.

We played with each other,
Caught crawdads and climbed trees,
But we were happy,
My brother and me.

We wasn't devils,
But neither angels were we,
Mama used the switch,
Enough to make a tree,
But it made us better children,
My brother and me.

When we grew older,
Off to school went we,
Up through the pasture,
Over ditches and through the trees,
To learn the three R's,
My brother and me.

Now life went on,
And one day, you see,
Our daddy had to leave us,
My brother and me.

But I got Robert,
He got Doxie E.,
That made us happy,
My brother and me.

Days kept passing,
Children and grandchildren had we,
Life held a lot for
My brother and me.

Then one day in June,
Death touched our family,
It took our mother from
My brother and me.

But we still have each other,
Thankful for that are we,
For we are still close,
My brother and me.

And when life is over,
And we go home to see
Daddy and Mama,
I hope it will be
Always together,
My brother and me.

MUSIC
The song now playing is
"The Way We Were"
(first half)
Memories
Light the corners of my mind
Misty watercolor memories
Of the way we were
Scattered pictures
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were

Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me - Would we? Could we?
(second half)
Memories
May be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget

So it's the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were
So it's the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were
