"those parents" lyrics written by Sharee M. Givens for Jonn Jonn's Parents

verse 1
waking up one day.
maybe they had something to say.
they just had to express.
making love, gave it away.

those words in their lips.
with stars in their eyes.
melodies in their feet.
today that's what moves me.

chorus 1
those parents
had to create-
the most beautiful baby.
fantastic little boy.
giving innocent joy.
when he learned to walk.
confused young man.
finding his place.
trying to find shoes that fit.
now hes a polite man.
with patience to the left.
and compassion on the right.

verse 2
as their hearts still climb.
with passionate memories combined.
memories of yesterday.
sit on chairs in their minds.

wild in their dreams.
now passed down the line.
all those generations sprung forth.
their legacy enriched even more.

chorus 2
those parents,
came from heaven.
just like you.
three tiny twinkles.
confirmed by angels afar.
generous pride in these stars.
traveling hand in hand.
they find their places.
they wear compatible shoes.
spreading smiles through the world.
once a boy or girl.
now they are parents to eternity.

repeat verse 1 & chorus 1 till fading point.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

romantic feelings felt towards a man i'm in love with and thanks going to all parents who created loving children like him, us, and anyone else who feels this way.
