They do just as they see.
They follow our examples,
Of what they ought to be.

Children wear just what they're given,
And act the way they're taught.

The Man Upstairs

My mama telling me.
About a man who lived upstairs,
And the friend that He could be.
He always came

You see, His name is Jesus,
And in Him will I abide.
