I KNOW THE GAME

I KNOW THE GAME

Don’t be ashamed of who you are because someone puts you down.
Lift up your head and take control because that’s only part of the game.
To make you think you’re less than a man so they can get into your head.
That’s why they keep their foot on your neck because you don’t know how to play the game.

When they tell you, this is not your country they have gotten into your head.
You never hear them say anything about the Mayflower, from which they came.
Turn and tell them that your ancestors bleed red, white, and blue.
We’ve fought in every war. how about you?

When they say go back home, don’t let them get into your head.
Because this is where you belong, under the Stars and stripes,
And we’ll fight for the red, white and blue.

So, don’t let them get into your head because this is the only country that you know.
So, when they try to put you down – wave the flag and let them know that
We have fought in every war, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to lose to you…

“BECAUSE I KNOW THE GAME”.

I’M MOVING ON

I’M MOVING ON

You can’t hold me down anymore,
I’ve seen the rich, I’ve seen the poor.
I no longer want to be under your control,
Life is too short, I’m moving on.
Don’t look back because I’ll be gone.
When you can think of me in a better way,
Then I may think if I should stay.
I’ve heard all the stories,
I’ve heard all the songs,
Look for me and I’ll be gone.
Life is too short, I’m moving on.
Love me the way I need to be loved or leave me alone and let me move on.
Life is too short, I’m moving on.

I NEVER WILL FORGET

 I NEVER WILL FORGET
I’ve seen flowers in the meadow, I’ve seen flowers on the hill,
But  I’ve never seen a flower quite as beautiful as you.
I’ve seen the sun rise in Seattle, I’ve seen the sun rise in New York,
But I’ve never seen a sunrise quite as beautiful as you.
I remember the first day I saw you, that day I never will forget.
You were standing in the sunlight, and your hair was blowing in the wind.
Then you turned and winked at me, something I never will forget.
Then somehow you got lost in the crowd, like the wind you were gone,
I never saw you again.

Historical Sites of Frankford in Philadelphia

Looking for something new while waiting for COVID-19 to go away?

Come sail with The Captain as he walks Rick The Puppy through the streets of Frankford. The Captain made a few friends who are in The Frankford Historical Society. They told him some stories that he could not believe he never knew before. They told him about how important Frankford Ave and who used to travel on it. The Captain learned about the term “The Frankford Advice” and the important location that advice was given in. He sees a graveyard older than the United States and so much more.
