Brick By Brick (Peck Danielle)

I look around and all I see Are people just like you and me They smile and wave and don’t complain Earn each dollar that they make Some punch the clock with overtime Sneak in to kiss their kids goodnight Others work a long hard day And still make time for PTA When we get tired, we get tough But that’s the way that we grew up You bet I’m proud that my father Is a working man who wears a blue collar I was taught to work hard, play hard, but pray harder Life ain’t about the get there quick You gotta build it brick by brick I’m thankful that my mom and dad Loved with everything they had But let me make my own mistakes That’s the biggest gift they could have gave There’s something to be said about Scraping knees and falling down Gettin’ right back up again And giving all you have to give I learned to walk by watching them That made me who I am A swift trip up on an easy ride Leaves you with nothing but a long slide down You bet I’m proud that my father Is a working man who wears a blue collar I was taught to work hard, play hard, love hard but pray harder Life ain’t about the get there quick You gotta build it brick by brick Brick by brick, yeah
