Lyrics

(marvin etzioni)

i was born with no silver spoon
i was born in one crowded room
where the cupboards were bare and the water ran cold
the blankets were thin and the children were told

no matter where the road takes you
no matter how it may bend and curve
no matter how many times they may break you
don’t be nobody’s mockingbird

i am the son of a carpenter

he was filled with pride
he was born to build
he had a good heart
and he had a strong will

he made the prettiest girl blush
she became his bride
in a matter of months
i was kicking inside

i am the son of a carpenter
i am the son of a carpenter

hammer and nail
sawdust and glue
carry a pail
and fill it with truth

no matter where the road takes you
no matter how it may bend and curve
no matter how many times they may break you
don’t be nobody’s mockingbird

i am the son of a carpenter
i am the son of a carpenter
i am the son of a carpenter
