My Father's Song (Streisand Barbra)

Whatever you are you're goin' to be Whatever you are is all right with me You're gonna 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 so he said: Whatever you are you're goin' to be Whatever you are is all right with me You're gonna be what you want anyway These are the words I heard my father say My father's song 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 star, and he says: Wherever you are I'm here by your side My life is a rope that won't come untied Oh, I'm gonna stand by you right or wrong These are the words within my father's song Uh..Oh...Ah...Mmm...Uh! These are the words within my father's song
