Show them with Pride

I've guarded these pictures through thick and thin,
took them out of the trash can when you put them in.
I know it seemed silly, for you'd always cry,
"Keep those ugly things? Heck No! Why should I?"
But one of these days when you have a son of your own,
you'll really appreciate the guarding I've done.
You'll swell with pride when he asks, "Hey Dad, is that you? Did you have any fun?
I didn't know they had schools when you were young."
"No moustache or sideburns--And what gives with the hair?
Were your folks just squares, or just didn't care?"
So show them with pride, may they give you great pleasure.
Whether you think so or not, you've got a real treasure.
