Brother Lyrics

He is one of a kind
and you will find
There's nobody else like him.
He's cocky for sure
and you'll want to hear more.
He tells his stories smiling.

He's a self learner
and a go getter.
A problem solver.
There's no one better.

Just cludge or jury rig it
There's nothing you can't fix.
And anything on hand goes in the mix.

Chorus
He has a gentle soul and he's very helpful too.

He'll do anything for you.
Just say you're in trouble
and he'll be there on the double.
With his toolbelt and his big heart.

He is a penny pincher but it's not even a bother.
He learned it from his father.
Why buy on time for something new.
You'll pay the piper when it comes due.

Stretching the truth without knowing the facts,
you'd think that he knows it all.
But show him the proof and he'll always remember
and he'll remind you the next time you call.

Just lend him a pen and he'll write you a letter.
You'll take many hours to read it.
He knows no better than to spell it like it sounds.
Just read it out loud and be quick.

Don't try and second guess him. You'll be fooled everytime.
Just take him at his word and smile.
He's very practical and he says it like it is.
But you may wonder if it's all just a pile.

Chorus
He has a gentle soul and very he's helpful too.

He'll do anything for you.
Just say you're in trouble
and he'll be there on the double.
With his toolbelt and his big heart.

Does he have any secrets?
It's hard to tell
cause the truth is all right out there.

He'll tell you his feelings
and he won't mince his words
and you'll swear that he doesn't care.

But if you take the time to read between the lines
he'll always come through in a pinch
even though he's stubborn and kind of full of himself
it seems he won't give you an inch.

Just by being himself, he affects many people.
Many have been touched for the better.
He doesn't want to brag, but there's a smile on his face.
Things will work out. What's there to fretter?

I try to emulate him as much as I can.
Seven of us came from the same mother.
When he's not around, I think of him often.
I love him, cause he's my older brother.

Chorus- instruments only.
