Country Lyrics "As You Want Done To You"

Updated on November 18, 2011
Source

Source

We don't always follow the right path

We tend to loose our way

I think we all want to live right

But sometimes we stray

We might make mistakes

This is how we learn

Sometimes we get ahead

Sometimes we get burned

Be honest to yourself

Be a friend to everyone

Remember we are judged

When this life is done


CHORUS

So be true to yourself

And be a good friend

Listen and be respectful

Offer to lend a hand

Be faithful and honest

In all that you do

Do on to others

As you want done to you


We can't take life back

It's a one-way track

We try to make up

For all that we lack

None of us our perfect

Sticks and stones do hurt

Don't frown on the past

Or where you once were

You can make the difference

If you just believe

All will come full circle

Just wait and see


CHORUS

So be true to yourself

And be a good friend

Listen and be respectful

Offer to lend a hand

Be faithful and honest

In all that you do

Do on to others

As you want done to you


Do on to others

As you want done to you

And I promise in the end my friend

You'll be blessed for all you do

You can make the difference

If you really want to

Do on to others

As you want done to you


ABOUT THE SONG

I wrote this song just about a year ago. I believe we should treat each other the way we want to be treated. I believe this song has a great message in it and it says exactly that. I believe we are rewarded for all the good deeds we do in life in due time, but it has to come from the heart and not the thought of being rewarded later on down the road.

We should always try to be good friends. I know it doesn't always work, but it can lead to some of the most rewarding friendships in our life. For example, if you see an elderly lady walking across the road, offer help. If you see someone broke down, offer your expertise. I walk the same road to work daily and not once has anyone offered to ask me if I need a ride. I know there are bad people out there, but you can see how the times have changed. Love one another and treat them like you want to be treated. Thank you all for your constant support and I enjoy all your comments. You all give me inspiration. God Bless

      Hi Ricky

      "We should treat others like we want to be treated."

      A beautiful message that cannot be repeated enough.

      I look forward to the day when I am watching television and see you getting your Country Music Award for best song.

      Wow...this was so beautiful. I wish you want to sing and put them on YouTube. You can enclose this inside your hub. It would be more intriguing. But it's so perfect for me. Thank you very much. Rated up!

      Makusr, I am glad you are trying this my friend. Your chorus needs to be catchy and the main part of your song. When the chorus is easily spoken and taken in by the audience, it usually turns out to be a good song, atleast in most cases. It is sung multiple times during the song and can be sung in alternates. If I can do anything, just let me know and I am glad you are trying. If anyone can do it, it is you. Poetry and lyrics are quite similar.

      thelyricwriter, I am learning to write lyrics from you my friend. When I am confident enough I'll show you. Your lyrics are meaningful and so full of music with chorus and all. Is chorus necessary part of it? Take good care of self.

      With warm wishes,

      Hi,

      I voted up and beautiful, as your song surely is, again it touched my heart. I will be so happy when you record your beautiful talent, and share it with the world. Sure a wonderful gift should not be silent. Send tweets to your favorite country writers, and get advise from them on getting your work published. You might get lucky with some help.

      Thanks,

      Your Hub Friend,

      We certainly cannot take life back. We are remembered by people as self centered, prideful, loving, compassionate or how ever we have treated them. Your song is a lovely reminder for us to treat everyone as we want to be treated. Thank you.
