I HAVEN'T TURNED OUT YET lyrics
The other day, I heard my mom complaining to my Dad.
It seems she was quite certain I was turning out all bad.
And so, that night when she came in to tuck me into bed
I asked her to sit down awhile and this is what I said,
“Mom, you do not need to worry!
Mom, you do not need to fret!
Those things you always tell me, I never will forget.
Someday I‘ll be a grown –up and you’ll be proud of it.
You see, I’m still a kid Mom, I haven’t turned out yet.
My Dad was telling Grandpa that he was worried as could be.
It seems his heart was breakin’, he was so ashamed of me.
And so that night instead of Mom it was Dad who tucked me in.
I asked him to sit down awhile. I started with a grin.
I said, “Dad, you do not need to worry!”
I said, “Dad, don’t give up on me yet!
That spankin you just gave me, I never will forget
Someday I’ll be a grown-up and you’ll be proud of it.
You see I’m still a kid, Dad, I haven’t turned out yet.”
A little later that same night we heard both Mom and Dad
We peeked through the key hole. They were kneeling by their bed.
With arms around each other, they were talkin’ kind of sad.
It seems that they were prayin’, cause this is what they said…
“LORD, we ask you to forgive us! LORD, we’re so quick to forget!
We were kids not long ago and we’re not grown-up yet
LORD help us to be strong and not do things we’ll regret.
Be patient with us please LORD! We haven’t turned out yet.
Keep workin’ with us please LORD! We haven’t turned out yet.
