>Pass the torch my Sister, teach that young woman how to become a lady
Pass the torch my Brother, teach that young man that there’s other things than becoming shady
Pass the torch, teach our children how to love one another
Pass the torch, teach our children that we are responsible for our Brother
Pass the torch, teach those young men and women that its okay to be you
Pass the torch, teach them to tell their peers about the wrong that they do
Pass the torch, teach our children that its not okay to prey on the weak
Pass the torch, teach them to be careful of the words that they speak
Pass the torch, give our children love and a sense of security
Pass the torch, teach them to preserve their innocence and purity
Pass the torch, teach them that they can come to you with anything
Pass the torch, teach them that there’s more to life than Bling
Pass the torch, teach them that in life they’ll make mistakes
Pass the torch, teach them how to move past it and continue on for goodness sakes
Pass the torch, give them the example that they can take with them throughout life
Pass the torch, teach them even though they do good doesn’t mean they won’t go through heartache & strife
Pass the torch, try to give them the armour they’ll need to go through life situations
Pass the torch, tell them family stories and about everyone’s past mistakes for life’s preparations

Pass the torch my Sister
Pass the torch my Brother
Pass the torch Auntie & Uncle
Pass the torch Godparents
Pass the torch Friends of the Family
Pass The Torch!
