All Ears


I wanna be all ears when Mom is speaking
All ears when Dad is teaching
There’s a lot I don’t know
And they’ve been around a whole lot of years
And have covered some ground
Their words will make me wise, so I’m all ears

When my eyes are tempted to wander away
I’ll be all ears
When my mouth is jumping at something to say
I’ll be all ears
Even when it’s hard for me to hear

When my parents tell me that I should obey
I’ll be all ears
When they teach me Jesus’ loving ways
I’ll be all ears
Cause I know it’s what I need to hear

I’ve got two hands, two feet
Two elbows, two knees, but I’m all ears
Two eyes, one stare, and a whole lot of hair
But I’m all ears
Tomorrow, today, at school and at play
I’ll be all ears
I’ll be slow to speak, and quick to hear
‘Cause I wanna be all ears!
