Brick by brick

by Danielle Peck


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

[Chorus]
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

[Repeat Chorus]

A swift trip up on an easy ride
Leaves you with nothing but a long slide down

[Chorus]
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
