A band of brothers, a team of friends
A fraternity of fathers, a few good men
Intelligent minds, emotionally strong
Standing for something, admitting their wrongs
Overcoming their struggles, being a man
Being responsible, doing what they can
Being a father, not only a Dad
Supporting a family, admitting our bad
So mentor a child, not only your own
Be an example, set up some goals
Follow your dreams, but chase education
Maintain a good job, exceed expectation
We are the future, not only the children
Searching for role models, are you hearing or listening
We’re done with the games, and losing our blessings
We’re building communities, and learning our lessons
We are showing you change, but no need for applause
Because real men step up, but today we stand tall!!
