To Make My Father Proud Lyrics - Michael Jackson
Review The Song (6)
To Make My Father Proud (1975)
To make my father proud
To make my mother smile
I need not conquer worlds of flame
Nor set the pace for style
If I can follow through
On what they gave me as my tools
I'll find a way to sail my course
Avoiding ships of fools
If I don't come up number one
I'll stand not well apart
As one for numbered numbers
When knowing in my heart
I've done all to be done
To always do my best
By listening to me, myself
So He can do the rest
(For without compromise
Shall flower the fruit of constant care)
In my eleventh hour
I'll be a man aware
To face whatever falls my way
Prepared and unashamed
To just be called a part of God
For which I have been named
A man and woman's youngest son
While growing, still a child
And that will make my father proud
And make my mother smile
Writer: CREWE, BOB/WEISS, LAURENCE

Not sure mj sung the original but this is a classic. Many people are oblivious to the fact that before all the commotion Michael Jackson was a vocalist, one of the best voices. A very dynamic entertainer. All his peers were either great singers, great entertainers or great musicians; he was all the above.
Strange Fruits Are The Songbirds Kept In Gilded Cages | Reviewer: Fabian Faun | 7/13/13
Charlie Chaplain (one of Michael's heroes)said "the people with the kindest hearts are treated with the harshest cruelty", I firmly believe this to be true of Michael Jackson - King of Pop. There have been days "when the music died", but when we lost him, the world died. We will "Rock With You" always!! Thank you for everything and sorry for letting you go.
A Majestic Voice | Reviewer: Mina | 7/10/12
He, who will stay in all music and dance history as the greatest innovator ever, continues to live through his music. Finding gems like this fills my heart with joy but my eyes with tears, for Michael indeed has given to the world oh so much and in return received so little. Hope he is in a better place now, where his wounds can heal!
Love Forever, Michael | Reviewer: EveryJay | 2/17/10
I find myself still crying when I hear his voice; and I want to hear it more still, his music. To know that such a beauty, such a treasure is gone from us. I believe despite what the media and the industry try to make him out to be that he was pure and good. I feel it in my heart -- The God that I believe in would only give that level of gifted-ness to one of His own. I will always love him -- I will sing his songs; I will write songs about him; I will tell my children about him.
Forever you will live on in our hearts who love you so!

I m the first one and I wanna say this: | Reviewer: Connie the (smooth criminal) fox | 10/10/09
I am only 16 but I grew up hearing Jackson's music due to my bro who was,is and will always be the greatest fan of MJ like me...we love you and it's a shame,a pity that people started admiring you only after your death!what's even worst is that you've been critisized for your life,your actions and you beliefs,which is awful cuz people shouldn't care about artists lifes but about their work in the music industry
Artists like MJ (and others) are not in a reality TV show so what we should care of is their music and not their personal life!
Thank you Michael for your music,you will always be #No1,on the top of our hearts and always be the King of Pop
Thank you for existing and I'm feel sorry about all the things life has put you through...
WE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU...REST IN PEACE...
