Kenny’s Advice

In Dedication to Kenny Rogers

VERSE 1:
When I was just a mischevious boy
I’d listen and learn from the radio
Cause my Daddy was busy workin’
Mama, well, she was a stay at home

As I grew up I had plenty of teachers
They taught me some things I’d forget
Cause by then I was addicted to music
I heard Kenny Rogers and I was set

BRIDGE
I don’t remember where he said this
But I recall it was during an interview
Kenny’s advice has helped me with life
Write this down, it just might help you

CHORUS:
Kenny said
Have something to do and do it well
Have someone to love and stay true
The final thing he told her in that sitting
Was have something special to look forward to

VERSE 2:
Well, I focused on somethin’ I’m good at
For writin’ songs, I didn’t need a degree
I found someone and we courted proper
and she fell deeply in love with me

And the last thing, I figure is what happens
When the first two things fall into place
You get to look forward to tomorrow, nightly
Cause your life today puts a smile on your face

BRIDGE 2
Remember Kenny’s advice, precious listener
For the good stuff wasn’t just in the hit song
that became a top forty hit, The Gambler
Listen to me one more time or sing along

CHORUS & TAG:
Kenny said
Have something to do and do it well
Have someone to love and stay true
The final thing he told her in that sitting
Was have something special to look forward to

Yes indeedy,
Keep havin’ something special to look forward to.

Lyrics Notes:  Thank you, Kenny Rogers, for being an amazing example to all of us.
