Paul Anka 的經典名曲。
A classic of Paul Anka.
We see this story through the son’s eyes. The son recall how his father raise him and what his father told him. He started to understand the meaning of his father’s word when the son grow older and become a father too.
The father portrayed in the song worked diligently for the family. After the father get old, he asked his son to take care of his own family and not worry about him. The son starts to recall his father’s word and realize how great his father is when the son finally grow to his father’s age. The son will follow his father’s path and do what his father did for him for his son. He will also live rest of his life alone and not to be a burden of his offspring.
Paul Anka 曾於一塲演唱會中，以修改過的曲詞演唱，故事記述性質更為濃厚，於父親面對和兒子終需分離不捨的現實之父愛表露，也有更深刻的描繪，讓我們看到一位真正的父親.
Paul Anka played a revised version of this song at the concert. The revised version is based more on reality. We see how great a father’s love is when he is separated with his son. This is an emotionally concert with professional performance.
母親身體不好, 當她去世時, 父親痛哭…."為什麼不是把他帶走"
母親走後, 父親只睡椅子, 不曾再到樓上…
有一天, 父親跟我說："兒子, 你已年成, 去過你自己的生活方式 , 我能獨自一人照顧自己"
Everyday my papa would work to help to make ends meet
To see that we would eat
Keep those shoes upon my feet
Every night my papa would take me and tuck me in my bed
Kiss me on my head
After all the prayers were said
Growing up with him was easy
Time just flew on by
The yeas began to fly
He aged and so did I
I could tell that mama wasn’t well
Papa knew and deep down so did she so did she
When she died Papa broke down and cried
All he said was, “God,why not take meeee!”
Everynight he sat there sleeping in his walking chair
He never went upstairs
All because she wasn’t there
Then one day my papa said,
“Son,now you have the way you’re grown”
“Make it on your own”
“I’ll be O.K. alone”
Every time I kiss my children
Papa’s words ring true
“Your Children live through you”
“Then, grow and leave you, too”
I remember every word
My papa used to say
I live them everyday
He taught me what I feel
Every night my papa would take me
And tuck me in my bed
Kiss my on my head
After all my prayers were said
