I Must Be All of That Today


I Must Be All of That Today

Swen Nater


See them play? I’m their football coach.

See that tackle? I taught him that approach.  

See, that throw? I taught that shoulder turn.

See that catch? It’s all because of my concern.  

See that block? It took a month for him to learn.

With this ball and whistle, I can teach them how to win.

And how to take the game on the uphill spin.

But to teach them how to be real men who care,

Who love and work and build and share,

And vote and help and give and pray,

And walk far from the wicked way,

I must be all of that today and every day.
