"The Last Alarm"--I thought this was awesome!
The Last Alarm
My father was a fireman, <br />He drove a big red truck. <br />And when he'd go to work each night, <br />He'd say "Mother wish me luck"
Then dad would not come home again, <br />till: sometime the next day. <br />But the thing that bothered me the most, <br />Was the things some folks would say.
"A fireman's life is easy, <br />He eats and sleeps and plays. <br />And sometimes he doesn't fight a fire <br />For days and days and days"
When I first heard these comments, <br />I was too young to understand. <br />Cause I knew, when people had troubles <br />Dad was there to lend a hand.
Then my father went to work one day, <br />And he kissed us all good-bye. <br />But little did we realize that night, <br />we all would cry.
My father gave his life that night, <br />When the floor gave way below. <br />And I wondered why He'd risk his life, <br />For someone that he didn't even know.
But now I realize, <br />The greatest gift a man can give, <br />Is to lay his life upon the line, <br />So that someone else might live.
So as we go from day to day, <br />And we pray to God above. <br />Say a prayer for your local fireman, <br />He may save the ones you love.
