A son is born

In the break of dawn
A son is born
So fair n light
Oh ! What a delight

From the bosom
To the pram
He will grow up
To be a man

He'll rise and fall
As he stumbles on
But to make a living
He must go on

Will he plough the land
Or will he take a stand
For soon he'll be a family man

Come spring or summer
Come sun or rain
I will love him just the same
