MY BOY
Elvis Presley


You're sleeping son, I know

But, really, this can't wait

I wanted to explain

Before it gets too late

For your mother and me

Love has finally died

This is no happy home

But God knows how I've tried

Because you're all I have, my boy

You are my life, my pride, my joy

And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy

I know it's hard to understand

Why did we ever start?

We're more like strangers now

Each acting out a part

I have laughed, I have cried

I have lost every game

Taken all I can take

But I'll stay just the same

Because you're all I have, my boy

You are my life, my pride, my joy

And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy

Sleep on, you haven't heard a word

Perhaps it's just as well

Why spoil your little dreams

Why put you through the hell

Life is no fairytale

As one day you will know

But now you're just a child

I'll stay here and watch you grow

Because you're all I have, my boy

You are my life, my pride, my joy

And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy
