FALSETTOS - Father to Son Lyrics

2016 Broadway revival
Falsettos the Musical - Father to Son Lyrics

“Father to Son” is a song performed by Christian Borle (Marvin), Anthony Rosenthal (Jason) from the musical FALSETTOS and is written by William Finn and James Lapine.

JASON:
My father says that love
Is the most beautiful thing in the world.
I think girls are,
I think girls are the most
Beautiful thing,
Not love.

MARVIN:
Kid, be my son.
What I've done to you is rotten.
Say I was scared.
I kept marching in one place,
Marching in time
To a tune I'd forgotten.

I loved you, I love you.
I meant no disgrace.
This here is love,
When we're talking
Face to face.

Father to son,
I, for one, would take love slower.
I've made my choice,
But you can sing a different song.
Watch as you sing,
How your voice gets much lower.

You'll be, kid, a man, kid,
If nothing goes wrong.
Sing for yourself
As we march
Along.

A man, kid, you'll be, kid,
Whatever the song.
Sing for yourself
As we march
Along.
