Ruth B. – If I Have A Son Lyrics

If I have a son
I’ll teach him to be brave
Cuz if I have a son
he’s never really safe

And when you run to the corner store for a snack
I wanna know that you’ll make it back home

Your skin, it glitters like gold
There’s love inside of your soul
But no matter what you say, no matter what you do
This world will never be as friendly to you
I wanna keep you close, I wanna keep you safe
I hope I see the day where I don’t have to pray
Every time you go
Every time you go

And if I have a girl
I’ll teach her to be strong
Cuz even when you’re right
they’ll tell you that you’re wrong

And if you want something you’ll work twice as hard
Cuz that’s the only way we get far

Your skin, it glitters like gold
There’s love inside of your soul
But no matter what you say, no matter what you do
This world will neνer be as friendly to you
I wanna keep you close, I wanna keep you safe
I hope I see the day where I don’t have to pray
Every time you go
Every time you go

I saw a man lose his life
All cuz his skin looked like mine
I hope the world makes a change
So when you get here it’s not the same

Your skin, it glitters like gold
There’s love inside of your soul
But no matter what you say, no matter what you do
This world will never be as friendly to you
I wanna keep you close, I wanna keep you safe
I hope I see the day where I don’t have to pray
Every time you go
Every time you go

If I have a son I’ll teach him to be brave
Cuz if I have a son he’s never really safe…
