What Sort of a Father Are You?
What sort of a father are you to your boy?
Do you know if your standing is good?
Do you ever take stock of yourself and check up
Your accounts with your boy as you should?
Do you ever reflect on your conduct with him?
Are you all that a father should be?
Do you send him away when you're anxious to read
Or let him climb on your knee?
Have you time to bestow on the boy when he comes
With his questions -- to tell him the truth?
Or do you neglect him, and leave him alone
To work out the problems of youth?
