MY FATHER'S SONG (Streisand Barbra)

Whatever you are you're going to be Whatever you are is all right with me You're going to be what you want anyway These are the words I heard my father say When I was a young girl and shy of men He said when you're ready you'll know just when And when I was taken and thrown away There wasn't a reason to face the day And he said: Whatever you are you're going to be Whatever you are is all right with me You're going to be what you want anyway These are the words I heard my father say My father soul is clear and easy And though he's gone, he lives in my heart When I go wrong I swear he sees me And he smiles for a start and he says: Whatever you are I'm here by your side My life is a rope that won't come untied Oh I'm going to stand by you right or wrong These are the words within my father's song These are the words within my father's song
