Set straight from the first time.
Taught from the start right from wrong.
Led by example, shown to be strong.
On how to act, and to carry on.

My mother raised me, to be a gentle man.
And I know I am my father's son.
I'll always be keeping my head up high.
I'll always be keeping on, on and on.
I'll always be keeping my head up high.
I'll always be keeping on, on and on.

Hard work was the best of traits.
And to lend a hand whenever you can.
If it was never broke, no need to fix.
If it needed mending, learn to stitch.

My mother raised me a resourceful man.
And I know I am my father's son.
I'll always be keeping my head up high.
I'll always be keeping on, on and on.
I'll always be keeping my head up high.
I'll always be keeping on, on and on.

Without a foundation and sights set so clear,
I would fail.
I know that I could not have made it to here,
I would fail.
All that you gave me came straight from the heart,
I would fail.
Without all the love that you gave from the start,
I would fail.

I'll always be keeping my head up high.
I'll always be keeping on, on and on.
I'll always be keeping my head up high.
I'll always be keeping on, on and on.

Set straight from the first time.
It's a credit to you I never went astray.
Last time I checked, I was doing fine.
Last time I checked, I hadn't lost my mind.

My mother raised me, as best as she could.
And I now I am my father's son
