Start In Life

Family is the nursery of life

It’s there we live and learn

Encounter love and strife

Fight our battles wage our wars

Earn our stripes get our scars

Sometimes run away from

Sometimes run back home


We must emerge from family

Important to get outside

Go into the wider world

Bear our name with pride

Take our values with us

Represent the clan

But remember most of all

To be yourself and be the best you can


A wider world awaits you

Other folk and friends

People you will take to heart

Others who offend

Living your life making your way

The challenge is thrown down

Step out into that world my friend

And earn yourself the crown
