Lyrics

Chorus

The first things I learned about boys and men

I learned from my four brothers

I didn’t realize ‘til I left home

That they set the bar so high

 

From them I learned  

That men are sweet                 

They love to compete

Men are kind   

Men are loving

They cry as often as they laugh

I learned they like to make you laugh in church 

And other quiet places                       

They’re loud and they’re rambunctious

They’re creative and they’re strong

 

Chorus

The first things I learned about boys and men

I learned from my four brothers

I didn’t realize ‘til I left home            

That they set the bar so high

           

From them I learned

Men are teachers

Men are students   

And can be your best friend

Chorus      

The first things I learned about boys and men            

I learned from my four brothers 

I didn’t realize ‘til I left home

That they set the bar so high

 

I learned that men take care of you        

They nurture you

And they treat you with respect and that men and women are pretty much the

same …

 

I thank you brothers  for teaching me to appreciate men 

And to not be bitter towards men and

To enjoy men

And it’s a good thing that mom always taught us to forgive….
