You Have Your Father’s Knees.

You Have Your Father’s Knees.

I take after my mother,

As she took after me;

And you inherited something from your father:

You have your father’s knees.

I see you out walking them;

Keeping them in trim;

And when I see those noble knees,

I always think of him.

In short, they are fine,

(I secretly wish they were mine),

They are the appropriate number, too;

I know they were his,

And now they are yours…

…They suited him better than you.
