You've Got To Stand For Something
Now Daddy didn't like trouble, but if it came along
Everyone that knew him knew which side that he'd be on
He never was a hero, or this county's shinin' light
But you could always find him standin' up
For what he thought was right

He'd say, "You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything
You've got to be your own man not a puppet on a string
Never compromise what's right and uphold your family name
You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything"

Now we might've been better off or owned a bigger house
If Daddy had done more givin' in or a little more backin' down
But we always had plenty just living his advice
"Whatever you do today you'll have to sleep with tonight"

He'd say, "You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything
You've got to be your own man, not a puppet on a string
Never compromise what's right, and uphold your family name
You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything"

And I know that things are different than they were in Daddy's day
But I still believe what makes a man really hasn't changed

You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything
You've got to be your own man, not a puppet on a string
Never compromise what's right, and uphold your family name
You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything

You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything
