A Paper n A Promise - Lyrics

Download Lyrics
(Billy Cowsill/Ron Salle)

I know an old man on the mountain

His eyes are glazed from life
Said he'd seen some happier times

Back before he lost his wife
Well he sat me down and told me

Some things I never heard
I listened to that old man

And I took in every word
He said, "You get a paper 'n a promise on the day you are born

That's the first thing that you sign.
A paper 'n a promise on the day you wed

When you take the vows that binds.
And there a paper about a promise of a promised land

That's a place we all hope to find
But that paper 'n a promise on the day you died

Is the only paper that you never sign."
I know a young girl in the _____

Whose heart is full of love
She's got a husband and a baby

All the things you been dreamin' of
They're going to teach their young son

To be a fine and honest man
Gonna teach him about the power in his spoken word

And the strength in the shake of his hand.
You get a paper 'n a promise on the day you are born

That's the first thing that you sign.
A paper 'n a promise on the day you wed

When you take the vows that binds.
And there a paper about a promise of a promised land

And that's a place we all hope to find
But that paper 'n a promise on the day you died

Is the only paper that you never sign.
Now God don't care about the clothes you wear

To get forgiveness all you do is ask
But He keeps track of promises kept

From the first day to the last
You get a paper 'n a promise on the day you are born

That's the first thing that you sign.
A paper 'n a promise on the day you wed

When you take the vows that binds.
And there a paper about a promise of a promised land

That's a place we all hope to find
But that paper 'n a promise on the day you died

Is the only paper that you never sign.
You get a paper 'n a promise on the day you are born

That's the first thing that you sign.
A paper 'n a promise on the day you wed

When you take the vows that binds.
And there a paper about a promise of a promised land

And that's a place we all hope to find
But that paper 'n a promise on the day you died

Is the only paper that you never sign.
You get a paper 'n a promise

Yeah, yeah, a paper 'n a promise

Just a paper 'n a promise

You get a paper 'n a promise

Yeah, you get a paper 'n a promise
