Ben’s Song lyrics

Original lyrics and music by Cortney Matz, 2019

Run little brother, run along
And wrestle with the world
Find yourself a niche and blow your way right through it
Find your perfect place to make your mark
And when you’re ready, get down to it
All that hard work you’ll be glad you gave

You got a future out there, somewhere
And you gotta go find it
You got a future out there, somewhere
Gotta bring it home
It’s a jungle out there, take care
Try not to mind it
You’re not alone – oh, no

Well you can serve it up on a platter
And eat it with a spoon
You can tie it to the back of your bike
And ride around it
Take a picture, put it in a frame
And show it to your friends and neighbors
Give it time, they’ll see how far you came

You got a future out there, somewhere
And you gotta go find it
You got a future out there, somewhere
Gotta bring it home
It’s a jungle out there, take care
Try not to mind it
You’re not alone – oh, no

You were made for something unique
It may take some time
Don’t despair, you’re heading somewhere
I can’t wait to see what you find

So, run little brother, run along
And see what you’ll become
There’s something bright and shiny up ahead
With your name on it
So tie your laces, runners take your marks
And when the whistle blows, you’re ready
Take the prize and see how proud we are

You got a future out there, somewhere
And you gotta go find it
You got a future out there, somewhere
Gotta bring it home
It’s a jungle out there, take care
Try not to mind it
You’re not alone – oh, no
