Lyrics

If you been wondering Just what has made us grow A generation hard as stone My father’s father, may God rest his soul He taught me something you should know You put your shoulder to the wheel You put your nose to the grindstone You work your fingers straight to the bone I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, a generation I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, don't leave us Selfless, relentless, don't let their memory fade away No, I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, don't leave us Remember what made us great Now’s the time to Remember what made us great They dug and shaped the earth, And with their hands gave birth To all the modern wonders that you see They worked from dawn till dusk They did it all for us If we take one thing from them it should be You put your shoulder to the wheel You put your nose to the grindstone You work your fingers straight to the bone I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, a generation I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, don't leave us Selfless, relentless, don't let their memory fade away No, I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, don't leave us I am forever grateful I am the man I am today I am forever grateful For your hand in making me this way (don't leave us) Remember what made us great (now is the time to) Remember what made us great Remember what made us great (now is the time to) Remember what made us great I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, a generation I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, don't leave us I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, a generation I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, don't leave us Selfless, relentless, don't let their memory fade away No, I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, don't leave us Remember what made us great (now is the time to) Remember what made us great
